I've been interested in genealogy for a while, and I have pages and pages of "Inlow" information that was passed down to me from my dad's mom (her maiden name was Inlow).Basically, what it boils down to is this:
Her great-great-great-great grandparents were Henry and Mary Elliot Inlow, married May 26 1763.Henry, born 1740 in MD, died 2/1/1828 in KY.Mary, born 5/24/1744, died 1/14/1785.Children: Mary (b ?), James (b 1767), Jesse (b 1768), and Abraham (b 1777).Henry married Elizabeth Peddicord on 9/9/1786.Their child was William W. (b 1784).Mary Elliot's parents were John and Mary Weecks Elliot, m. 12/29/1736 in Baltimore Co., MD.
That's all I knew until I started doing research on-line, and I found so much more information.I found many "Enloe" sites that had, coincidentally, the *exact* same dates for Henry and Mary (except in some instances her name was Elcott) and their children.It's too much of a coincidence for me...same dates, same locations, same everything, just a different spelling of the name.I figure they *must* be the same people.
So I guess I'm related to a lot of you?:)
I have the rest of the line if anyone might be interested...it ended up in the Kansas City area, although my grandparents moved to AR near 1970 (heh heh, and here I am back in NC!).But apparently there are more Inlows from this same line related to me all over the place; the guy who did this for my grandmother lived in AR as well.
Apparently this Abraham Enloe guy is sort of famous in our ancestry, that's kind of cool to know.
What I also find interesting is that my grandmother says she was always told that the name Inlow was German.I wonder, where did that come from?Is there a reason the spelling of the name was changed from Enloe to Inlow?Unfortunately, my g-grandmother died a few years ago, so I can't ask her anything.Any ideas?
