Elias Franklin S. Polk was born June  11, 1834 in Darlington Co., South Carolina, and died May 5, 1908* in Falls Co, Texas.  He is buried @ the Chilton Cemetery Falls Co, Texas 
*Marker says:"Died May 5, 1905, aged 70 years"

He married in South Carolina about 1856 to Miss Sarah J. W. "Sally" Ladd.  Her parentage is yet to be proven.  She was born CA 1834 SC and died prior to 1884.

He was the son of James Polk & wife Frances Symiriam "Miram" Carter Polk.

EDITORíS NOTE- The Soldiers Board of Relief was created by the S.C. General Assembly in December, 1861. This board was authorized to levy an annual tax on each tax district and to distribute the money to families of soldiers who had volunteered for S.C. or Confederate service. General state records exist in the records of the Comptroller General of S.C. concerning this board, but no state records concerning individual disbursements have been located. Horace F. Rudisill, Darlington County Historian, some years ago located the records of the Darlington Soldiers Board of Relief in private hands. This is the sixteenth report in our series.
