George Elrods in 19th Century South Carolina

Posted by southernkin on 2009/12/10

In response to some readers’ questions about George Elrod in early 19th century South Carolina, I’m including some data on various persons either named “George Elrod” or who are children of one or another George Elrod, along with available death dates,  parents, or spouse.

All this information comes from cemetery records in South Carolina.  However, not all of it is absolutely certain, since there may be (and in fact are)  some conflicts between these entries and other available material on the same person(s).

As this list shows, there are several George Elrod “twins” — for example, a George W. Elrod is son of George G. Elrod, and another person by that same  name is son of Adam Soelle Elrod.

From the cemetery records:
