Eli and Elizabeth Ann belong to the Scholes branch of the family. Eli was born 17 Jul 1831 and died 16 Apr 1899. He married Elizabeth Ann Holden at Kirkburton 24 Jan 1863. He was a weaver like his father, although he sometimes called himself a clothier. Elizabeth Ann died 12 Aug 1826, age 88.
They were both buried in the grounds of Holy Trinity Church, Hepworth were I took most of the data above from their gravestone.
Eli's parents were Gamaliel and Annie Dawson. They married at Kirkburton 22 Dec 1817. I have found ten children for them. Eli was the fifth born. Gamaliel died at Scholes and is buried at Christ Church, New Mill. I can find no date of death for Annie. She is still around in the 1881 census (but not in that of 1891) age 82.
