Note: Elisha does not appear on a formal roster as being part of the unit but this has been confirmed through pension records that name both him and Tabitha.

Note: This is confirmed to be Elisha Hattaway ‎(despite the spelling)‎ since it is the exact amount of acres that were given to him by his father William when he died in 1813 or 1814.
Emigration 1817 ‎(Age 25)‎ Warren County, GA


Note: Some time around 1816 and before 1829, Elisha moved with Tabitha from Pitt County, North Carolina to Warren County, Georgia. He is listed in the 1830 census with his brother Irwin. He was probably following the other Hattaway's including his brothe r Irwin. I believe that his emmigration happened in 1820 since there is no record of him in the 1820 Census.
