You kindly responded to a previous message I left regarding the Shoemaking Elstons in Crediton, Devon, UK.
Since the time I spoke to you I have discovered that my grandad Daniel Elston had relatives (possibly nephews or neices) in Illisnois. Their name was Tutti. My father spent some time with them during the 50's while in the army, before, or at the time of, signing up with the Canadian Army. Also my aunt (dad's side) communicated with them for a time.
Would this name appear in the James Strode Elston book at all?
I believe I may have found distant relatives in Canada, but feel there is a distinct possibility of others in the US.
