Elijah S. Self was a member of Co D, 1 Reg, Blue Ridge Rangers, Ga State Line. He was discharged 26 June, 1863 due to heart disease. (ref. "Dahlonega's Blue Ridge Rangers in the Civil War, by Harold Ernest O'Kelly") 1893, Nov. 3 issue.. Dahlonega Nugget * E.S. Self, who resides at the foot of the Blue Ridge in this county, took sick while in town Monday and is now lying in a critical condition at the residence of Geo. Sissum and is not expected to live. His trouble is invagination or a kink in the bowels. He has been gradually growing worse, the pain is intense and the attending physician is not prepared to relieve him, He is getting weaker and weaker, and before this reaches the eyes of our readers, the body will be visited by the cold hands of death, and relieved of all pain and suffering. Later - as we go to press, we learn that Mr. Self is dead. He was buried at Cane Creek Baptist Church.
