I recently read a book, The HISTORY OF THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. There is a part of the book that lists a William Snelling that was a circuit rider for the original church. He is reported to have covered a good deal of Kentucky, Tennesse and a small section of Mississippi. He was also the first black minister with the church. It is said that he had married a mullato woman who was named either Elisha or Elisa Ansel. I found one entry in one of the Methodist historical libraries that states they had 2 sons and a daughter but no names are given. I think the daughter may be your Eliza
