Elijah Ilkenfritz/Elefritz, 1795-1860, VA
Posted by: James Marion Baker Date: October 21, 2001 at 15:30:25
  of 54

My ancestor, Elijah Elefritz, lived as an adult in Hardy County, VA (now part of WV). I am told that the name Elefritz had perhaps been Ilgenfritz in Germany, from whence the Elefritz family probably came. Elijah married Elizabeth Sine, and they had a family in WV.

His origin is unknown. Perhaps he emigrated from Germany. I am wondering if anyone has information about his birth, birthplace, etc.
