    -William Milton Chelf was married once before he married Julia Burke. He had one son with the first wife. Her name is unknown. The child was Franklin Elias Chelf b. 14 Apr 1821 who m. Delilah Dicken. If you want his 14 children when they were born and who they married I have that. With Julia: Lyttleton Peroy Chelf b. 1828 in Culpepper Co. VA m. 2 Sep 1852 Elizabeth Ann Wilson (This is my line) They had several other children but I am sure you are more interested in me going back instead of forward. Catherine Elizabeth Weaver b. 9 Jul 1769 in Madison Co. VA dau of Mathis Weaver and Elizabeth Finks m. 25 Dec 1787 in Culpeper Co. VA Elias Chelf. In 1830-31, this family left VA to make their home in KY; all that is , except Elias Jr., Patsy and Ruth. These three lived and died in VA. Ruth was not quite normal and never married. It is recorded that Elias Sr. and Catherine went to KY with the children, died there and was buried in the Old Liberty Cem near Bradfordsville, where many of the family are buried. A lot of the children were married before going to KY. Sarah was married to Garrett Van Dyke in KY. Catherine is shown on the 1840 census living in the home of her son Philip. Jackie Brown
