New Jersey, USA
According to family legend, Elisha ran away to Bucks Co, Pa to avoid being bound out and there, joined up with the William Blevins family who (along with Cox, Roberts and other families) were in route from New England to Maryland. Somewhere in route, it is believed that Elisha married William Blevins daughter, Mary Blevins. it is quite likely they moved to Prince George's County, MD along with Elisha's brothers James and William to live on land purchased by their father, Thomas Walling II some years before. (written in the memorial of Thomas II, also)
Elisha and Mary had the following children;
1. Elisha Walling, Jr. *The LongHunter* b. 1732 in Prince George Co., Md.
2. Joseph Allen Walling b. 1734 in Prince George Co. MD **my direct ancestor**
