You are excluding an entire generation. George Virgil's parents were John Edgar Corydon Elliott (24 Aug 1850 - Sep 1914) and Josephine Hawkins Haltom (14 Mar 1858 - 10 Sep 1946). George Virgil's grandparents were James Jefferson Elliott and Mary Manerva Roundtree. The grandparents found 1870 Washington, TX then 1880 Jones, TX. Guessing they travelled overland via horse or ox-drawn wagon?
