Notes:  After the Creek Indian War ended in 1815, Elisha's parents took him and his siblings, migrated out of the Carolinas, travelled by covered wagon, and hurried to get land in the last great Indian hunting ground east of the Mississippi.  The Samuels settled in the northern hill country of St. Clair County near Steele, Alabama.  The family was self-reliant, owned no slaves, and tilled the soil themselves.

Elisha married in 1822 and subsequently fathered 11 children.  He and his family first lived on farms for about ten years in St. Clair and Blount Counties.  In 1832 the rest of the Creek Indian Territory in eastern Alabama was ceded to the United States.  This land was then offered to white settlers.  Elisha purchased farming land from the government and by 1840 had moved his family to Benton County (which was renamed Calhoun County in 1858).

Elisha moved his family to Sevier County, Arkansas, between 1844 and 1850.  He later died there.
