I have a xerox copy from a book and I don,t have the name of the book but it is on p.179 written by Barry Lamb on Falwell Family. It is from a bunch of short family Histories and the one on Falwell Family list the children of Elisha and Elizabeth Falwell.
Elisha Falwell and his wife Elizabeth came to Beford county, from Virginia, before 1812. elisha was born 23 Nov.1776. His wife Elizabeth was born 14 Feb.1774. Early Beford County tax lists, 1812, indicate Elisha Falwell owned land in what was at that time within the area of Capt.John Byler,s Company. The present day location is between Rover and Chapel Hill. At the time of his death 25 Jan.1857 he owned 112 and 1/2 acres and was bounded by his son Moses Falwell,William Osteen,and J.D.Ezell. It goes on to say Elisha served in Captain Andrew Patterson,s Militia Infantry during war of 1812.
It says Elisha and Elizabeth had six children.
1.Moses b.31May,1803 d.18 May 1868 mar.Sarah alford b.31 Aug.1810,d.12,Sep.1848
list their children
2.Martha M. b.24 Aug.1805, d.28 Apr.1883 married Jason B. Sheffield,b.2 Aug.1785,d.17 Mar.1874
3.William H. Falwell m.Matilda Elizabeth Little. They moved to Texas. He served in Hoods Texas Brigade and list there children.
Matilda Little was daughter of John P.Little and grand daughter of Daniel Little of Nc.
4.Mary married John W.Winters
5.Temperance b.1818 mar.Richard S. Rickman
children Elizabeth,Elisha,Susan,John,James,Martha,Mary F.
6.John B. b.1819 married Mary P.Martin 1st and 2nd to Catherine(It was Charlotte) Rebecca Little. Charlotte Rebecca Little was the daughter of David G.Little and Mary J.(Webb) Little and grand father was John Little and gr.gran was George little

All of the above including Temperance,Moses and on down to John and Charlotte named a son Elisha.
I got a lot of my information from Ken Falwell of Dallas,TX.
Charlotte Rebbecca Little Falwell was my gr.grand aunt.
