Although I can't give you any primary documentation....the 1851/1852 census pretty much confirms it for me that Elsie was the daughter of Cornelius Johnson and Lydia Cole. Plus the fact that she named one of her children "Cornelius". She and William Purdy are living next door to her parents in 1851/1852 -
