According to Don Inman: Elias G. Jeannerett appeared to have lived in Brunswick Co., NC, although his will was written in Wilmington, New Hanover Co., NC. Wilmington was the largest town in the area at that time. Elias probably went there to have his will made out. The Poitevin family had moved to Bath Co. (now New Hanover Co.), NC in 1728. It is believed Elias was a friend of this family. Elias had a mill in Columbus Co., NC.
Elias Jeanerette gave his sister, Margaret Smith, and her children two slaves, two horses and 15 head of cattle on 29 April 1792. On 26 Dec 17 94, he sold some land to James Smith (Margaret's husband?) for 20 pounds.
