Elijah L. Blaylock was first married to Margaret Hanners/Hannah in Stoddard Co., Missouri on 25 August 1870. A poor image of this record can be found on Ancestry.com.

However, family tradition says his first wife was Genera Sumner, a daughter of William J. Sumner and wife Elizabeth Hanners/Hannah. The surnames Hanners and Hannah were often used interchangeably in family documents. It is known from the Civil War pension file for William J. Hannah (Sumner) that he assumed the surname Hanners/Hannah and was known by both surnames.

Elijah is found in the 1880 census of Ridge Twp., Jackson Co., IL listed as George Blaylock with wife Margaret and children William F., John P., Lilly Dell and Elizabeth. They follow the listing for William Sumner with his Mother Elizabeth and siblings Sarah E. and Frances E. Sumner.

Elijah was married to Mrs. Nancy Wolf Aiken in Jackson Co., IL on 20 December 1888.
