I am still looking for information re: my probable 5th great-grandfather Nicholas Elsey!
Nicholas Elsey was born about 1730 in England - probably the Middlesex area. He immigrated to America in 1753 and settled in Virginia. He lived in Fauquier County before moving to Rockingham County. He was living there when his son Edward enlisted for the American Revolutionary War. He also lived in Monongalia County. His son Edward lived most of his adult life in Hardy County, Virginia.
Nicholas had three children: Mary (presumably born in England), Edward (b. abt 1755) and Thomas (b. in 1760}.
Researchers have never found out who Nicholas Elsey's wife was. We are seeking any and all information that may be out there.
If you have any information or documentation, please contact me!
