Your Bryum Elliott is on the 1870 census, age 20, in Fox River Township, near Phillipstown.He is in the home of William (age 46) and Lucinda (age 36) Stout.I believe Lucinda was the widow of one of "my" Elliotts, I just have yet to figure out which one.Byrum Elliott's full-siblings were John age 18, Eliza age 12, and Benjamin age 9.
Also in the househole is Jane Stout age 12, probably from William Stout's first marriage.There is also James Sotut age 3, and Catharina Stout, age 7/12.
Among my Elliotts in Fox River TWP 1870 were Joseph Elliott (born about 1830, son of John Elliott and Anna Condet, single), Lafayette Elliott (born about 1834, also s/o John and Anna),Silas (born about 1835), Jacob L.C. Elliott with wife martha Graves (they had a daughter named Lucinda, age 14), Rebecca Elliott (daughter of Benjamin Elliott and Sally Higginson, with her husband Norman Williams), Lucinda Elliott (daughterof Benjamin, with husband Samuel Goodman, happens to be same age as Elliott's mother!),and Benjamin Franklin Elliott (son of Benjamin and Sally).I still have a few more suspects to chase down, but it is safe to say that your Byrum Elliott was surrounded by my Elliotts.
I am also interested in discussing Walkers, another time!
