Birth: Sep. 25, 1829
Death: Oct. 15, 1905

Eli served in the Confederate Army during the U.S. Civil War. He was among the first to take up arms for the South, and he was wounded at Lexington.

Interesting whole history of this family on World Connect:
The links had three children that survived: David Jacob, Sarah E., and
Eli Jackson. In 1840, the family, which included 2 slaves (1840 Federal
Census), was removed from Kentucky and located in Clay County, Missouri. They
later resettled in Platte County in 1842 at Second Creek. In the spring of
1846, Israel Link patented 320 acres, which became the Link farm and settlement
known as "Linkville." The old Link homestead is believed to have been built in
1847. The brick "big house" Link mansion is representative of those Southeren
styled homes of the Little Dixie region, built by slave owning farmers and
planter who migrated there from the Upper South.
By 1850, Israel was a substantial farmer and owner $6,300 in real estate and 4
slaves. His two sons, who also lived on the farm, owned 2 slaves.
