My North Carolina Elliott Lineage:
William Elliott 196x-
Carroll Elliott 194x-
Rufus Spencer Elliott 1920-2000
Joseph Edward Elliott 1893-1986
Rufus Asbury Elliott 1859-1917
Wilborn O Elliott 1829-1898
Reubin/Ruben Elliott a1805-1874
Likely (based on census data and DNA)
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...
