I am looking for Elijah Runion's father. Elijah was born September 15, 1858 in WV and died May 3, 1944 in WV. His birth certificate listed only his mother, Rachal Runion. He had three children with his first wife, Mary Catherine Moore. They were Effie May Runion, b. May 18, 1891; Lydia Jane, b. August 28, 1892; and William Matthew b. February 22, 1894 or 1895. His second wife was Ida Mae Schoolcraft and someone told me they had a child named Gladys. My great grandfather, Elijah, was supposedly a full blooded Cherokee. On the 1880 census he was listed as a bound boy for Hiram Cummings family. On an August 8, 1850 census, his mother, Rachal was listed as living with Eli and Mary Blankenship in Wyoming County VA. Any information would be greatly appreciated as this has been a stumbling block for several of us doing the research over the years.
