Elijah Lee Johns was his brother that he lived with (I think the dates are mixed up). He did
have a son named Elijah that married Allie MacElmurry.
Uncle Lige and Aunt Allie spoiled us kids rotten when we saw them. She gave us every kind of
soda or baked pie, cookies, etc. whenever we went to visit. The last time I saw Aunt Allie
they had moved to Melbourne after selling the farm.
Homer, Elijah, Arch, Jim, and my great grandmother were all children of Elijah Hawkins Johns.
I believe the middle name above Elijah Lee Johns was Uncle Lige's name. Elijah Hawkins Johns
brother must have had a different first name.
