There seems to be a problem here, the father Elijah Boggs was born in 1774 and the first son Elisha was born in 1781, which means his father was then 7yrs old and his mother wasn't even born. This family needs sorting out. It's very confusing, when trying to source it. No offense meant, it must be hard working out these large families especially when the names are repeated in each generation. Hope someone can help.
Boggs-514 and Boggs-4 appear to represent the same person because: Boggs-514 and Boggs-4 appear to represent the same person because: the birth date is wrong for Boggs-4, that date makes him older than his mother, but in all other respects they appear to be the same person
