Are You My Cousin?: Elias Arrived By E-Mail

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Name:
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

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.
