Elliott Family Researchers: I now believe that we have found the missing Edward Elliott b. 1794 in Jefferson County, Georgia. His father, Thomas Elliott, died in 1805 in what is now East and West Feliciana Parishes in Louisiana. Thomas left a will that named his three boys as Willis Elliott b.1793, Edward Elliott b.1794, and William Elliott b.1795. Thomas left all of his property to his children. On March 20, 1816 Edward Elliott appeared in court in East Baton Rouge Parish to collect his inheritance. In this document the judge states that Edward Elliott of Lafourche Parish appeared in court today.
Edward Elliott( Edouard Eliot, Elliot, Elliott)lived and died in Lafourche Parish, La. His descendants have researched his family history and can not go any further than Thomas Elliott.
I truly believe that this is the Edward Elliott that is related to the Rapides Parish and Evangeline Parish Elliotts.
