Pop-up Pedigree

Mother   Alice Wilkinson b. 10 December 1755

Religion Francis Elliot was a Quaker.

Birth circa 1795 Francis was born circa 1795 at likley, Warrington MM, York county, Pennsylvania. Francis shows on the 1850 census as 55 years old, born in Pennsylvannia.1   Some believe that he was born in Chester county, Pennsylvania.     He was the 8th and last child.

1796 In 1796 Francis moved from Warrington MM in York county PA to Westland MM in Washington county, PA with parents.2,3

30 Nov 1815 On 30 November 1815 Francis transferred from Westland MM, Washington county, PA to Marlborough MM in Stark county as a single man.2

Marriage 28 May 1817 Francis Elliot married Mary Burden 28 May 1817 in Marlborough MM, Stark county, Ohio.4,2,5  She died about 1845.
In 1934 it is likely this family was living in Zanesville, Ohio as son Joel may have been born there.
By 1842 he is in Illinois.  Two children were born there.  But he was still on the tax list in Stark county, Ohio.

Tax List 1835 Francis Elliot appears on the tax list or duplicate for Lexington township, Stark county, Ohio, for the year of 1835 with a small piece of land and TWO saw mills. On the 1837 tax list he is still on this land.6,7

1838 In 1838 Isaac Elliot Sr. father of Francis died in Lexington township, Stark county, Ohio. Francis received $50 from the estate.8

Marriage 24 June 1847 Francis Elliot married Margaret Wilgus 24 June 1847 in Logan county, Ohio. It appears that she had been married before as in 1854 Francis Elliot is made the guardian of young "YOUNG" children. Likely hers by a first marriage. They had children also, but the author of "The Elliott Family History" did not know the names. Two children are given by in the world tree.4,5

Cen1850 1850 Francis Elliot appears on the 1850 census of Perry township, Logan county, Ohio with Margaret as wife and four small children. These children may not be theirs, but rather grandchildren or possibly her children from a previous marriage. These children are Mary 8, John F. 7, Phebe 2 and George H. 8/12 All Elliott.9,1    

These children are Mary, 8, b in Illinois, John F. 7, born in Illinois, Phebe, 2 born in Ohio and George H. born in Ohio. All have the last name of Elliott. But only Phebe and George appears to have been the children of Francis Elliott.1

1854 In Vol G, p 433 of Logan county Probate records in 1854 Frances is made the legal guardian of children with the surname of Young. This was likely AFTER his marriage to Margaret  WilgusYoung.9
