Elias Arrived By E-Mail

Elias Elliott and His Second Wife Susan Wilkerson
A great granddaughter + a GGG granddaughter + an Ancestry.com query = An Introduction to Elias Elliott

Meet Elias Elliott, my GGG grandfather.

Harriett Ann Elliott was my GG grandmother and the mother of Esther Lee Richardson.  Harriett was the fifth child and youngest daughter of Elias Elliott and Panthea Overby.  The family lived in the Mecklenburg County and Halifax County areas of Virginia and intermarried with my Talbott line.

I have done only basic research on my Elliott line and most of that research has revolved around Harriet Ann Elliott and the Richardson family.  Recently through a query on Ancestry.com, an Elliott cousin and I communicated. Information and photographs were exchanged.

Elias Elliott then arrived in my inbox.

The Genealogy Happy Dance ensued.
