Elijah Lacy was the son of Stephen & Sarah Lacy, Hanover and Goochland County, Virginia. His older brother, (Ens.) Mathew Lacy, and cousins, Eliot and Elkanah Lacy, were also soldiers during the Rev War. Another older brother, Jesse Lacy, also served, I believe.
His wife, Frankey (Frances) Holland Lacy, is the daughter of Dr. George Holland (son of Michael Holland), who, I have read but not "proved", did patriotic service in Virginia during the Rev War. They were from Louisa and Goochland County, Virginia.
Elijah and Frankey moved from Virginia to Woodford County, Kentucky c. 1795-1800 and to Owen County, Indiana, in 1815, where they lived to old age. They moved to Morgan County to live with their daughter, Mrs. Stephen Hancock, until their deaths, as best I can determine. Their son, Jesse Lacy (my 4th great-grandfather), stayed in Owen County. Elijah and Frankey Lacy had five (5) children.
I finally got to Morgan County last month to photograph the gravestones and cemetery. I was on a genealogy trip to Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois re both sides of the family from the RevWar ancestors on.
Two of Elijah's grandsons, Thomas & Robert Lacy and families, moved to Cumberland County, Illinois c. 1855.
