Signature of ~ Eli Mercer ~ Battle of San Jacinto Veteran
Some of my family history in Texas
HW10  #9904  Nov 22, 1838  Military  Eli Mercer. Elijah Mercer was my Five (5) Great Uncle by marraige.  His wife Ann Nancy Thompson was the eldest sister of my Five (5) Great Grandfather John Thompson.  His son Roland, my Four (4) Great Grandfather named my Three (3) Great Grandfather John Mercer Thompson.  He then named my Two (2) Great Grandfather Elijah Mercer Thompson so this name is speical in our family!  Eli and Ann's eldest daughter, Penelope married Gail Borden (Borden Milk) while they were still living in Amite County, Mississippi.  Another item I found interesting while researching this document is that Eli was Orderly Sergeant in Capt. Heard's Company, 1st Regiment Texas Volunteers.  Eli Mercer Thompson married Mary Heard of Georgia and my mother here in Texas was kin to Texas Heards I recall her saying the Heards were here during the Revolution and most all the Heards in Mississippi and later Texas came from Georgia.  Not For Sale   obv  rev
