Subject: [ELLIOTT-L] Elliotts in West Virginia
Date: Sun, 01 Nov 1998 15:17:34 -0500


Hello,
I am looking for information about the following line of Elliotts, who
resided in Ritchie County West Virginia. They may have originated from
NJ, NY, or PA. Henry probably served in the Revolution, since his son
executed a power of attorney on March 21, 1828 to Moses Dolan to
dispose of "military lands" belonging to Henry. Sarah appeared on that

date to witness that Jabez was the son of Henry Elliot, deceased.
Edmonia (#25 in this report) is my great-grandmother. Can anyone help
me with any of these people? Thanks for looking!
