Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: 1805
Breckinridge County
Kentucky, USA

Died before April 15, 1805 at Houston's Springs (no longer listed), when he was shot by William Friend McMahon.

Evidently Elijah was a rowdy person, maybe even a trouble maker:

[Elijah Hardin] While still "a minor shot and wounded Isaac Bush, son of Christopher Bush, resulting in a judgment of $1,500 in damages against General Hardin (April term, 1804, Hardin Circuit Court), and who was afterwards himself shot and killed at Hardinsburg by Friend McMAHON in 1805." -- "General William Hardin" in Who Was Who in Hardin County (Hardin County Historical Society)
