Probably you are aware that many surnames are using DNA tests to determine family lines.There is an Allison surname project that includes Ellison and Elliston surnames also.I would like to encourage males with the Ellison or Elliston surname to participate.
My husband is an Ellison who descends from: Robert Elliston b. 1700 Stafford Co., VA Robert Elliston b. 1732 King George Co., VA Robert Elliston b. 1762 Culpepper Co., VA Benjamin J. Ellison b. 1800(Some of the siblings of this generation dropped the “T”) Benjamin J. Ellison b. Jan.10,1833 Burke Co.,GA Richard Andrew Ellison b. Sept 25, 1856 Burke Co. GA
