Elijah Teague born Cornwall circa 1834


New member
Hello, I can see conversations from 2016 discussing the possible whereabouts of Elijah Teague - born circa 1834 in Truro, Cornwall. Elijah was the son of William Teague/Tyack and Mary (nee Cowling) In 1851 he faced court on the charge of murdering his stepfather William Kendall. He was found not guilty. After his acquittal he disappeared and it is thought he came to Australia. I am chasing information on this mysterious character and wondered if anyone has discovered anything further since 2016.
