  • Notes 
    • The following is a quote from the paper entitled "The Freiley Family" by Sue Ziegler:

      "John Elsea (Irishman) and Jane Cox were married in Salecreek, Tennessee in the year of 1850. John was a jolly fat red-headed giant of a man, but was high tempered; however, he was also very tender-hearted -especially toward children. Great-grandmother Jane (Cox) Elsea was a dainty small girl who took life seriously, and cared for her husband and children accordingly. Their children were: Merry Jane (grandmother) born in 1855. Nancy, Elizabeth, Sarah, Calvin, Penk, Bill, John Jr., Thomas. Note similarity of names with the Freileys."
