Deb Elliott
Wrong Elliott & Wilkins Information
This Information below is very wrong and I have the proof. Thomas Elliott Was born in South Carolina and his father is Lt. Col. Samuel Elliott, I have the Will to prove it. I also have a document in French stating the Thomas Elliott and Elizabeth Wilkins were the parents of Edward Elliott. I have more documents of Edward of proof.

Thank you,
Deb Elliott



Birth: 1761
Virginia, USA
Death: 1805
East Feliciana Parish
Louisiana, USA

Thomas Elliott was born in 1761 in Virginia and died in 1805 in what was then Spanish West Florida. The area that Thomas Elliott died in is present-day East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana.

Thomas Elliott's father was George Elliott of Virginia. George Elliott's birth year is currently unknown. The Elliott family has indicated that George Elliott migrated from England to Virginia in about 1760. George Elliott died, along with his oldest son, on 11 September 1777 at the Revolutionary War Battle of Brandywine. Family tradition has it that after George Elliott was killed, Tories harassed Thomas Elliott's mother and family. Thomas Elliott killed two Tories, presumably those who harassed his family. He then moved his mother, younger brothers and sisters to safety in South Carolina. There he joined General Frances Marion's Brigade. Thomas Elliott was a lieutenant in the militia and aide-de-camp to General Marion [the "Swamp Fox"] from 3 July 1781 to 14 December 1782." - (Source: Note 1408, Unwanted Patience and Fortitude, Francis Marion's Orderly Book, by Patrick O'Kelley, Page 699, Infinity Publishing, 1094 New Haven St, West Conshohocken, PA. 19428, 2006 and Family Records.)

Thomas Elliott married a woman named Elizabeth Mayers (Myers) in South Carolina or Georgia. In the marriage record of Thomas Elliott's son, Willis, to Abagaile Leberge on 18 November 1824 in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, Willis Elliott lists his parents as Thomas Elliott and Elizabeth Mayers. Thomas Elliott would have been in his mid to late twenties when he married Elizabeth Mayers.

The Succession of Thomas Elliott's will is dated July 18, 1809. It states, "the deceased left three heirs, to-wit; Willis, Edward, and William Elliott, from fourteen to sixteen years old." Thus Thomas Elliott's three surviving boys were born in 1793, 1794, and 1795. They were born in the portion of Warren County, Georgia, that was to become Jefferson County, Georgia. Willis Elliott was born in 1793 and died in 1860; Edward Elliott was born in 1794 and it is uncertain when he died; William David Elliott was born on 1 February 1795 in Warren County, Georgia and died on 20 January 1856 in Spring Hill, Rapides Parish, Louisiana.

Thomas Elliott was on the 1796 Jefferson County, Georgia, tax rolls in Captain Gray's District. He is listed on Page 5, line item 77, of the Jefferson County tax book. He is shown with 113 acres of land, 100 acres of which was pine land. The next Jefferson County, Georgia, tax list that is currently available is for 1799, and he is not on this tax roll. It is possible that Thomas Elliott and his family left for Spanish West Florida prior to 1799. Also it is possible that his wife died prior to his departure for Spanish West Florida. Thomas Elliott left a Will and Codicil that were made in Spanish West Florida and his estate was probated there. Because West Florida was under the control of Spain in 1805, there had to be translations into Spanish accomplished in order to complete the administration of the estate of Thomas Elliott. When Thomas Elliott died in 1805, we know that he was living in Spanish controlled West Florida, in a portion of "West Florida" in New Feliciana, near a part of what is now Baton Rouge, Louisiana. There is a Spanish record of the administration of his estate, which was translated into English in 1937. Volume 15 of the Index of the Archives of Spanish West Florida shows that the Will of Thomas Elliott and Succession is contained on pages 283 through 291 of the transcriptions from Spanish to English.

We do not know where Thomas Elliott or his wife, Elizabeth Mayers Elliott are buried. We would appreciate additional information.

RE: Photo of Harriet Fitzgerald grave stone
Glad to have been of some help with this, David. Almost an accident that this stone was found. It is a small, flat stone and was almost completely overgrown with grass and covered with dirt. Would have been so easy to miss it completely.

RE: John Culbertson, son of David Culbertson
David,

Actually it is MATT who attached John Culbertson to Joseph and Agnes Culbertson. I agree with you that John is the son of David.

Thanks for contacting me about this as from time to time I have made some mistakes and only want to post what is correct.

I assume you are connected to the Culbertson family. I descend from Joseph and Agnes. If you are connected and would like to share research I would be glad to.

RE: Hugh Anderson Haralson
Hi,

Being that it is a famous memorial and no longer under my control you will have to contact Find A Grave and ask them to link the two. Thank You.
