After 1870, most Quakers in the Midwest gave up many of their
traditional ways and became more like other Protestants.
Accompanying this change was considerable growth in membership. It's
possible that your Elliotts were drawn into Friends during this time.
And Giles may well have had earlier Quaker connections. After 1870,
many ex-Quakers who had lost their membership when they married out
of meeting came back, as those rules were discarded.
