Lemuel Elliott a1765-1844

John Elliott, Sr. a1735-1839

According to family oral history, either John Sr. was born on the Ulster Plantation in Ireland (where Elliots were generally sent following the clearing of the Borders by James I in 1605) and one of three brothers who immigrated to Virginia (and then to NC) or was the US born son of one of these three brothers.

There's also a theory that Ulster is where the second "t" in "Elliott" originated...

Alternative Spellings?

The double L and single T
Descent from Minto and Wolflee,
The double T and single L
Mark the old race in Stobs that dwell.
The single L and single T
The Eliots of St Germains be,
But double T and double L,
Who they are nobody can tell.
