BIOGRAPHY: A John Elderkin immigrated to America from England, married and had a son John Elderkin.  The son was assumed by researchers to be a Junior or II when born.   When the full family tree is known, the John who came to America was already  John III with a father and grandfather John in England.  Therefore, his son, the first born in America was John IV, not Junior or II.  With so many John Elderkins in this large family tree, the correct suffix is needed to keep them separate and avoid confusion. - Familysearch.org

Abigail FOWLER was born on 27 Nov 1660 in Milford, New Haven, Connecticut. She died on 14 Mar 1713 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut. Abigail married (MRIN:6188) John ELDERKIN on 8 Feb 1685 in New London, New London, Connecticut.

Thanks for responding so quickly. I will give you names and dates as I "know" them, in fact,I'm looking for the records to verify virtually all of the Canadian info. My 3ggrandfather James Stott was born in Lacolle,PQ 5/18/1804. His first wife was Phebe Knight,b<1805>Vermont,USA. She died in Lacolle 2/28/1843 and was buried 3/1/1843,St.John's. James died 5/18/1863 in Lacolle and is buried at Burtonville Cemetery. The only document I have come across that shows James in Canada is the 1851 census-it has him living in St. Valentin (dist 10) and gives his birthplace as Seigmura Delry. At the time of this census,I believe he is remarried to a Rebecca. Back to the union of James and Phebe. They had several children, definitely Joshua Horace b.9/1824,Mary b.1826,William B b.1828 and my 2grandmother, Elisabeth H. b.July 14,1833. I can find no record of their marriage or Elisabeth's birth.(The Church of England,Caldwell Manor PQ has been mentioned as the place of their marriage-but the given date is 12/1/1817--that would make James only 13 when married?!)One last record I'm looking for is a death cert for Phebe's father, Josiah Knight (b.11/22/1762 Norwich,CT,USA) and died Lacolle,PQ Canada in 1840. I sincerely appreciate any help that you may be able to provide--heading me in the right direction would be a great help. At your convenience, I look forward to hearing from you, Ruth

Phebe KNIGHT [Parents] was born in 1805 in Grand Isle County, Vermont. She died on 28 Feb 1843 in Lacolle, Quebec. Phebe married (MRIN:6189) James STOTT.

Ruth Bott (rvaygen@yahoo.com)
Mr Knight, I agree and if I ever find that proof, you will be the second to know! By the way, I have seen her death record posted in the register of St.Jean Methodist-Lacolle,PQ,  Canada. She died 28 Feb 1843 (6 days after giving birth to James on 22 Feb) and was buried on 1 March 1843. It does reference her being a parishoner of a St. Therese parish--unfortunately,  while I've been able to  see a record of my Elisabeth Stott's baptism in  1833- records much before  that seem not to  be available-thus no record of  James  and Phebe's marriage. Best regards, Ruth
