I have information that my g grandfather, Dempsey Elliott, may have been born in Vermilion Co., IL on July 31, 1831. Other information suggests that he was born in 1833. Any information concerning parents, correct date of birth would be welcomed
I found an Asa Elliot listed in 1830 Vermilion County census with a total of 11 in household. Breakdown is: 7 males (1 5&under, 1 5-10, 3 10-15, 1 15-20, 1 30-40(head of household Asa)) 4 females (2 5&under, 1 10-15, 1 30-40). I suggest looking a decade later (1840) as there may be more information listed, but that is the only Elliot family within Vermilion County for that census year (1830).
Hope something here helps you in your search!

Vermilion Co. Query Response
I am searching for the parents of my g grandfather, Dempsey Elliott, who was born in Vermilion County in Jan or Feb of 1833. I am wondering if he could have been the son of John Elliott and Cinthia Pate who were married in Vermilion County, 2/21/1832.
You mentioned a Sophia Lander in relationship to the marriage of Margaret Lander and William Elliott, 11/19/1840. I wonder if this is one of my ancestors. I have Sophia Elizabeth Lander,August 1815, daughter of Johann N. Lander and Marie Zwalla. Do you have any further that might confirm or conflict with this?
