John Elliott married Frances Knox Childerstone some time after the death of Frances' husband Richard (John in some records) Childerstone in 1771. John seems to have raised and provided for Richard's two children, Richard and Frances. Richard (Jr) went on to become a Justice of the Peace in Franklin Co. I know nothing of the daughter Frances after John Elliot's will of 1781.
I would appreciate corresponding with anyone who has any information about Frances Knox or her daughter, Frances Childerstone, or has any additional information about Frances' husband Richard Childerstone.
