Elijah L. BLAYLOCK was born in Craighead, Arkansas on 4 Mar 1849. He died after 1920 in Jackson Co., IL. There is a cemetery stone for E. L. Blaylock in Jerusalem Cemetery near Pomona, IL with only his date of birth. There is also a stone for N. A. Blaylock with her date of birth 14 March 1867. The Illinois Archives Statewide Death Index (1916-1950) lists Elijah Blaylock, Certificate # 2390106, 27 November, 1927, Murphysboro, IL.

A George Blaylock is listed in the 1880 Federal Census, Ridge Township, Jac. Co., IL with a wife Margaret b. ca. 1853 IL. Could this be Elijah? What is Margaret’s maiden name?
