Found the death anouncement in the St. Louis Republic newspaper in 1900. It states that James McElroy (b. 1814) had a twin brother that was sold away from him at the age of 18. Which would be about 1832. A Mr. Holton purchased my James and they served in the war together. The lived on a Mount Strgent or something close to that in, I believe Jeffern County, KY. His brother was sold to someone in Mississippi or North Carloline. If anyone has heard of a twin male McElroy that was sold away from brother in Kentucky I believe that is Jefferson County please let me know. Or if there were any McElroy slave oweners in the area.
