This Elija or "Lige" was born in TN about 1886, the son of Elijah DeRossett and Mary Ann Holman, grandson of John and Elender DeRossett. In 1920 Census of Putnam Co., TN, he's living in Cookville with wife Mollie (35), sons [Earl] Beecher (8) and Arval (14), and daughter Pearlie (16).
Other than Elija's WWI Draft Registration card and Earl Beecher's Social Security application which reveals his mother's maiden name as Hunter, I've not found any further information on Elija and his family. Does anyone know what happened to them?
