Birth: Feb. 24, 1822
New Albany
Floyd County
Indiana, USA
Death: Sep. 29, 1842
Pike County
Illinois, USA

Son of Benjamin Elledge & Catherine Reynolds.
The following is from a Pike County History Book:
A FRAGMENT OF GRAVESTONE picked up on the site of the long-abandoned cemetery of the Elledges, two and one-half miles northeast of Griggsville on land now occupied by Glenn Riley, bears the initials "E.K.E." This doubtless is a piece of footstone that once marked the grave of Edward Kindred Elledge, seventh child and third son of Benjamin Elledge and Catharine Reynolds, and a grandson of Daniel Boone's niece, Charity Boone.

Edward Kindred Elledge bore the name of his great grandmother, Sarah Kindred, and that of his great grandfather, Edward Boone. He was known in the family as Kindred Elledge. He was 12 years old when the Benjamin Elledge family settled on Griggsville Prairie in 1834. He was born near New Albany, Indiana, February 24, 1822, and died on the Benjamin Elledge homestead near Griggsville, September 29, 1842, aged 20 years, 7 months and 5 days. He was buried in the nearby cemetery, his being, probably, the third grave there. He was unmarried.
