Of Philemon Chance.  Philemon had two sons named Eli

You're welcome to join and fix the error, although if it's an old record you may need to get someone with pre-1700 certification to help.

A lot of files here were uploaded as GEDCOM files in the early days and their accuracy was suspect. We try to fix those we find.

I submitted proof of Elizabeth Allen providing the pension application of Eli Chance in the War of 1812 as well as Elizabeth Cagle Chance's application of pension to Wikitree.  The Eli Chance, who married Elizabeth Allen married her in 1818 in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana.  My Eli Chance married Elizabeth Cagle in 1816 in Amite County, MS.

To correct an error in my initial question, Philemon was the father of my Eli Chance and the father of Eli Chance by the 2nd wife, Lavisy Day.

Philemon lived in Yazoo County, Miss and moved to St. Helena Parish, Louisiana and to East and West Feliciana Parish Louisiana. He died in West Feliciana Parish in 1816.

My Eli Chance and Elizabeth Cagle were listed in the 1850 census of Tyler County (Woodville is County Seat) Texas. The County lines changed in 1858 when Hardin County, Texas was created.  They did not move, the county lines did.
