    My family goes back to John Teter Elrod, Christopher Elrod, Sr., Christopher Elrod, Jr. Thomas Benton Elrod, Sr.
    who came to Maries County, Missouri, in 1846, when my grandfather, Thomas Benton Elrod, Jr. was three years
    old and many, many of the Elrods stayed in this same area. My father was Allen Boney Elrod (1894-1986), one
    of fifteen children who were born to Thomas Benton Elrod, Jr. Four children were born to he and his first wife Matilda
    and the other eleven children to he and his second wife, Sarah Margaret Givens, my grandmother.
