Elon and Martha Carman are living alone in Philadelphia

 

Elon Carman (c1829-         )

There is an Elon Carman, sometimes reported as Elwood, who married Mary Lowry. I have also found an Elon Kite Carman in newspapers who might be the same person. My working theory is that he is the son of Elon & Martha Carman and the brother to Charles, but I have not yet found any solid records to back this claim. I have matched on AncestryDNA to descendants of this Elon Carman as a 4th-6th cousin.
