I was just
going back and looking at the postings of correspondence on the web site. I
found my emails that I sent to you in 2002 regarding the Charles Elliott
family. He is father of my great grandmother, Mary Ann Elliott Brady. At the
time I corresponded with you, Charles Elliott's
name is all I had taken from Mary Ann's death certificate. Since I emailed you,
I hired a gentleman 2003 in England
to do research for me. It proved to be worthwhile all though a little expensive
so I limited the research just to the immediate family.
following is what he found for me. Charles Elliott was born November 5, 1815 in
Wotten Under Edge, Gloucester, England.
He Married Celia Guest, daughter of Daniel Guest and Sarah Arkell, on December 25, 1838 In St. Bartholomew, Churchdown, Gloucester,
She was born about October 18, 1818.
the following children:
Elliott, b. November 15, 1839, St. Nicholas Gloucester city, England; d. July 9, 1919 Mount Sterling, Illinois
Edwin Elliott, b. March 29, 1842 Gloucester
city, Gloucestershire, England; d. January 4,
1910 Asbury, Jasper
Henry Elliott, b. June 7, 1846 St. Nicholas Gloucester city, England; d.
April 29,1847 St. Nicholas Gloucester, England
Elliott, b. September 5, 1847, St Nicholas Gloucester,
England; d. May 22, 1849 St.
Nicholas Gloucester, England
Elliott, b. June 13, 1849, St. Nicholas Gloucester,
England; d. July 3, 1851 St.
Nicholas Gloucester, England
Elliott, b. October 22, 1851, St, Nicholas Gloucester, England; d. March 1, 1852 St, Nicholas
Elliott, b. December 8, 1852
All of the
above information was obtained by my researcher, Geoffrey T. Roberts, in the
General Register Office in Gloucester,
England. One of
the children listed above, William Edwin Elliott, did not come from Mr. Roberts
research. It was given to me by Jack Giles, who says he is a great grandnephew
of Mary Ann Elliott. William Edwin Elliott is his great grandfather. But he
apparently did not appear in the records Mr. Roberts researched in England.
Elliott immigrated to the US
in 1855 which is stated on her death certificate as to the number of years she
had been in the US
at the time of her death. She possibly came here William Edwin and Sarah Ann as
they are the only surviving children. Mr. Roberts said there was record of a
Cholera Epidemic in September and October of 1854. This could be why the
surviving children came to the US.
He could not find any record of the parents deaths. He
also sent me Mary Ann's birth certificate. His research time amounted to
approximately 6 to 7 hours. I would have loved for him to go further but the
cost too expensive and I mainly got what I really wanted.
married Thomas Terrence Brady on January 18, 1860 in Mt. Sterling, Illinois.
He was born May 5, 1834 in County Cavan, North
Ireland, the son of Francis Brady and Clara Dowd. He died August
9, 1908 In Mt. Sterling Illinois.
He Immigrated to the US
and Thomas Terrence Brady are my paternal great grandparents.
This is a
little late bringing you up to date but here it is as I know it today. Still
have been unable to find the ships either family came to the US .
