Darla Wisdom My grandfather's sister Lular Moore Harris related that one of their grandmothers' forebears (here is where it got confusing) came over from Ireland -- father and mother and 3 daughters who names all began with an M (Mary, Minnie, Margaret possibly) and landed in Texas. The father went back to Ireland but mother and daughters stayed and walked to AL with indians winding up in Castleberry, AL. None of this has been able to be verified other than word of mouth. They were probably Elliotts but possibly could have been Murphys. Does any of this sound famliar?

WHEN MY SISTER CUT HER EGG THERE WAS A NICKLE UNDER HER EGG. I WAS SO JEALOUS AS I LOOKED UNDER MY EGG TO FIND NOTHING.AFTER THIS I ALWAYS WANTED THE SMALL EGG BUT NEVER FOUND ANY NICKLES.MY GRANNY TOLD ME JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS BIGGER DOES'NT MAKE IT BETTER. THIS TAUGHT ME NEVER TO BE GREEDY.FUNNY HOW SUCH SIMPLE THINGS CAN TEACH US LESSONS THAT LAST A LIFE TIME.

Kathy Smith Years ago my grandfather (pap) Lon Elliott caught a golden eagle in one of his traps.He kept it in a cage until it's foot healed.Before he let it go he had some of his sons help him hold it for a picture.The eagle had a wing span of 8 feet.After the piture was taken,Pap watched it fly away.When he caught things that should'nt been in his traps,he would try and doctor them and let them go free.

Linda Stevens My dad, George Elliott died when I was just 5 years old. He wasn't married to my mom, but I carried his name until I married at the age of 18. I don't have many memories of our days spent with my dad in Wilmington, Deleware, but I DO have wonderful memories of times spent with my grandmother, (his mom) Cora Elliott, better known as "Nana" to me.
She used to brag on what a good child I was and how I wouldn't touch any of the nick nacks she had everywhere in her home. She didn't like storms, and when it would thunder I would get in the bed with her to "protect" her from her fears. (I'm not sure who was protecting who :-)). When I got older, married and moved far away - I wrote letters to Nana. When her eyesight began to fail, I began sending her my letters on audio cassette, along with a tape player to play them on. She never really got the hang of it and since she's passed on, I now have the tape player and the one and only tape with her voice on it grumbling about how to use the "dumb thing". She's been gone for almost 20 years now, and I sure do miss her! I am researching her roots, because I knew very little about her earlier days. I do know that her maiden name was "McCrea", and that she had a step-father by the last name of "Darrah". I also know that my grandfather's name was Simon even though he was long gone by the time I was born. If you read my story and have any connection or just enjoyed reading it, please feel free to write me - Linda Stevens at [contact link]

Jack Elliotte My name is Jack Douglas Elliott/e and I was born in Gastonia, NC in the year of 1935. I am the son of George Dewey Elliott and Dorothy Hoffman Elliott. I know that George was born in Statesville, NC and that Dorothy was born at Spencer Mountain, NC. I know about the Hoffman family, but I cannot find the first clue about the Elliott's. I beleive that George Elliott's Dad's name was either James Martin or Martin James Elliott. George was born in Jan. 1905 probably in Statesville or Gastonia, NC. He had a younger brother Heskell and a older sister Willie. If anyone has any information, please contact me at [contact link].
