Second wife of Elias Crockett Downs. Buried in unmarked grave. They never had children (see below), but he did with his other two wives.

This was sent to me -
In doing research on Elias C. Downs I've found marriage records for two Elias' marriages: Morgan Co., GA for marriage to Elizabeth Atkinson on 1 July, 1824. They had 8 children based on Will of their son Lemuel C. Downs filed in Chatham Co., GA in 1917. I found marriage record for Elias and Alcey Studdard on the 20th of April, 1841 in Newton Co., Ga. Elias and Alcey appear in the 1850 Federal Census in Walton Co., Ga. and there are two sons: John U. Downs born ca. 1846 and James H. Downs born ca. 1848. These would appear to be the sons of Elias and Alcey.

Do you know the name of the 3rd wife and the date and place they married? I am a descendant of Jane Downs Robinson. Thanks. (carol.wilder69@yahoo.com)
