Wow! That's excellent. I had found Elizabeth Davenport to be a likely candidate because of census records showing her family in close proximity to Elihu in 1850, her family's Kentucky origin, and her absence from the record in later periods.

As you may know, their young daughter Malissa's grave indicates that her mother's name began with an E. I had previously located records for other children that showed their claim that their mother was a native of Kentucky. So I would say your evidence makes this as close to a lock as we're likely to get. Now, if I can just figure out who David Greer's father was....
