Surnames: Elbon

According to my Family Tree Maker program, Harold, and Joseph are my Great Grand Uncles. Their brother, James Cylvester Elbon is my Great Grandfather. His son William Walter Elbon moved his family from Webster Springs, WV, to St. Petersburg, Florida in a covered wagon. We cousins, use to play in it during family reunions.
In 1912, His brother, Arthur Boyd Elbon, my Grand Uncle, chartered a special car to move his family, from WV down to St Petersburg.
They had a sister, Dottie E. Elbon, in WV that I don’t know much about.
I just started working on this genealogy project, so I’m still missing information. I have one Aunt Edna, who is still alive, and can answer many of these questions. I am trying to find a mutually available time to meet with her.

I found much more information on my mother’s side of the family, and am spending most of my research time there.
Harold Franklin Ebon’s Father is Harold C. Elbon, and I believe his father is Harold Reed Elbon.
Do you know who Harold Reed’s father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, and etc. is?
I hope this helps.
