Elijah's obituary showed he was born in Randolph County, Indiana,h and several censuses confirm that he was born in Indiana,c,d,e,f but two 1920 census entries show he was born in Iowa.g,i    It appears that the 1920 census entries must be in error, as his parents were known to have been living in Randolph County, Indiana at the time of his birth.49
