MCELYEA

Among the many surnames found in my family history is that of McElyea. I am descended from a William Andrew McElyea whose wife's name was Catherine. They had a son, William Thomas McElyea who was born on February 4, 1854 in Alabama. William married Alcy Qualls. Alcy was born on the 15th of Dec. 1851 and died on March 30, 1918 in Limestone County Alabama. Alcy was the daughter of James W. Qualls and Martha Marony. It has been passed down that Martha Marony was a sister to Jefferson Davis' wife. A daughter was born to William Thomas McElyea and Alcy Qualls on September 22, 1884. Her name was Mary Lou McElyea. Mary Lou was known as "Mollie". She married Joseph William Hudson. Joseph was born on September 7, 1878 in Limestone County Alabama and he died from injuries received in an automobile accident on March 5, 1950. Joseph and Mollie had a daughter "Florrie Belle Hudson" on February 20, 1901. Florrie Belle Hudson married Thomas Telford Hamilton. They are my grandparents.
