      CAROLYN NELSON:

      We find Elijah 1762 buying land in Russell Co., VA, c 1780, through 1797. In 1797, he is in Knox Co., TN, and I'll bet he's in Clay Co., MO, before 1818.

      FRANCES DELL:

      The last time we can trace Elijah 1762 is when he was listed in Anderson Co., TN, as one of the executors of his father's (Thomas Frost 1745) last will and testament, along with two of his brothers-in-law. My idea is that he is the Elijah Frost who died in Clay Co., MO, in 1822.

      Thomas Micajah Frost was guardian of minor children along with one Richard Linville. Elijah Frost, Page Portwood and Rowland Chiles were appointed executors of Thomas Frost's estate (quite large in 1807). However, this estate was not settled until after 1830, and by that time there wasn't much left. His son, Joshua, now a hard-shell Baptist preacher, got what was left. All traces of the book in which the will of Thomas Frost 1745 was recorded have been reported as "lost." The first wills now start with 1830.
