well i'm from sain louis, mo. that is where i grew up with my mother and siblings. however, a lot of the elliotts live all over i'm finding out. between festus, mo., kansas, oklahoma, butler county, illinois. north carolina. i have recently got in contact with my aunt that has been working on the family tree for years and she has so much. also i know that a lot of the elliott family was mormons as well. my aunt and i are making arrangments to meet up and go through what she has. within the next week. i will keep posted. i also did the census in breton, washington, mo. for the year 1870. also i do know that kaskaskia island was owned by elliott family. i'm still working on more of that of how the elliotts came across owning the island from the indians. also i do know that so many elliotts owned slaves and cotton fields in arkansas, some parts of mississippi. also from what i have researched, i have found that the elliott name has 77 different variations. the elliott name it self are part of border reivers families that may have multiple origins. genealogical records were destroyed in a fire at stobs castle in 1712 and since then no one has known the truth about what happened to the elliott and armstrong families. they do know that a good percentage found ways to america, married and took their wifes last name for they was being hunted by the british back then. i can keep you informed on more of what i find out. have you checked out the website for family tree dna called- border reivers dna project. i hope we can both find more info from each other. i will let you know when my dna comes through. thank you
