Notes and Other Records

To do:

  • Get copy of 1802 marriage record in Fauquier Co., VA.
  • Look for any death records in Bracken Co., KY.
  • Look for more census records. Where was Reuben in 1930?.

Proof of lineage notes:

  • 1802 Fauquier Co., Virginia marriage record shows Reubin Elliott and Charlotte Strother married.
  • 1941 Thompson Family History book states that Reuben and Charlotte Elliott are parents of Dorcas and that she married John H. Thompson, son of Ebenezer Thompson and Elizabeth Howard.
  • Need to find more proof linking Dorcas to Reuben and Charlotte Elliott.

From the Thompson Family History:

All three of the sons of Ebenezer Thompson II, by his first wife, Elizabeth Howard, married daughters of Reuben and Charlottee Elliott, who were residents of Mason County, Kentucky. John H. married Dorcas Elliott; George H. married Julia Ann Elliott; William P. married Serepta Elliott. A brother of these ladies was Martin Elliott, who came to Warren very early and for many years followed his trade, that of shoemaker.
