If there ever was a genealogical stone wall built, Elbert Berry Lively's parents and
his family members are on the other side - There are many gaps within this family (especially
Elbert's first two children) - if you have any additions/correction or would like to
contribute (this is our family, this site was established for you), please let me know in
order that we may bring our family up-to-date. By working together, we can solve the
puzzle of Elbert Berry's parentage and from where he was abducted by Indians.
