Im posting this info for someone who does not have an ancestry account.We have located younger William Elliott who was supposedly wanted for murder. He was in Jefferson Ashe county in 1880 living with his Step-Father William Elliott. Below is info given to me about the possible murder. Does anyone know about this possible murder charge or found a court record about it? Thank you
My great grandfather was William Elliott.In his last years he told a family member that his name was Parker from Wilkes county.He said he had killed someone in a drunken fight and ran to Tennessee.My mother can remember in
the thirties that law enforcement came from NC looking for him.His dob was 09/10/1870.His dod was 04/04/1940.
