Hi,I recently learned that my 8G grandfather is Thomas Elliott of Rehoboth, MA.(Although I have not proven all of the generations yet...)I would be interested in comparing notes with any cousins out there.As I understand it, my Elliot line looks like this:
Thomas ELLIOTT (abt 1652 - 23 May 1700) & Jane BELL (4 Apr 1658 - 9 Nov 1689) Thomas ELLIOTT (22 Jan 1681 - 25 May 1752) & Mercy WALKER (abt 1686-1687 - 28 Aug 1758) Abiah ELLIOTT (1711 - 20 Jul 1789) & Capt. Sylvester RICHMOND Sr. (25 Nov 1711 - 9 Dec 1804)
I found a couple of web-sites on the internet that show Thomas as being the son of Jacob Eliot and Mary Powell of Boston, MA, and the grandson of Deacon Jacob Eliot who came to New England in 1631.However, this does not seem to fit with the information I have found in the Boston VRs, and the in Savage.Can anyone comment on whether there is any truth to this linkage, or whether anything is known about Thomas' ancestry?
