I am researching William (Edward possible middle name) ELMORE AKA Willie, and Will
1. My main goal is to find the parents and grandparents of my Great Grandfather William ELMORE. My cousins and I have been searching for over 50 years.
2. He does not appear in any census until 1880 after he marries in 1876 so I would also like to know why he doesn’t appear in any census before that.

Birthdate was taken off of Death Certificate. Information given by daughter-in-law. Using this birthdate he would have been 9 years old when he was married in 1876.

Death Certificate

William's father was supposed to have died in the Civil War and his mother was supposed to have given him to one of his grandmothers to raise him. He could have been very young because one story is that he never knew either of his parents. There is also a story that has his mother remarrying and having more children.
