bullet  Noted events in his life were:

1. Census: Research, 1830. Elias Gainey shouldbe about 24. The following are the Gainey entries I have found so far in the 1830 census in Sampson and Cumberland counties, but none have a spot for a 20-30 male:

Josiah Gainey 50-60, 1 male 40-50. (Cumberland Co, Flea Hill District, NC)

John Ganey 60-70. (Cumberland Co, Flea Hill District, NC)

John Ganey 20-30, 1 male under 5, 1 female under 5, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 20-30, 1 female 40-50. (Sampson Co, NC)

William Ganey 60-70, 1 female 15-20 (Sampson Co, NC)

Elias Ganey 60-70, 2 females under 5, 1 female 20-30 (Sampson Co, NC)

2. Census, 1840, Cumberland County, North Carolina, United States. The household of Saban? Gainey includes 1 male 30-40 [could be Elias, he should be 34]. Saban is male 60-70, with 2 males 5-10, 2 males 20-30, 1 male 30-40, 2 females under 5, 1 female5-10, 2 females 15-20, 1 female 50-60. (Cumberland Co, NC, p263)

This is the only 1840 Census entry for a Gainey in Cumberland or Sampson Co that includes a male 30-40.

3. Census, 1840. In 1840 Census, Elias should be about 34. These are the other Gainey census entries, but they do not contain a male 30-40. Note that Elias is not married yet, so is probably still living with his parents:
