Gordon: I have been going through all of the Trollinger/Drollinger Postings till way in the morning. I seem to think you know quit alot on this family. I descended from the ELLIOTTS and I live in Oklahoma. I have My family background to 1616-1698 When Wendel (as I have his name)Drollinger came from the Tyrol in Austria. He was my GGGGGGGGG-Grandfather, and his Great Grandson, Adam Trollinger was my ... GGGGGG-Grandfather. Adams Father was Hans Michael Drollinger and his wife, Eva (Klemmer) Drollinger, whom are my GGGGGGG-Grandparents. Can you tell me the correct way that Wendell Drollinger spelled his name? Also am I correct on Hans Michael? The information that I have was from "The Darsts of Virginia, A Chronicle Of Ten Generations in the Old Dominion, with Sketches of the Cecil, Charlton, Glendy, Grigsby, Larew, Miller, Welch, Trollinger, Wygal, Wysor Families. By, H.Jackson Darst,University Library, Chrstianburg, Virginia.
What is your comments on this information? I have complete History down to My Grand father, Doc McHenry Elliott and my Grand- mother Annie Jane Elliott, whom lived in Marietta, Ok,Love County. Martin Elliott Sr had married, Mary (Polly) Trollinger (Heavener) (Elliott).They were my GGG- Grandparents. Theyre son Martin Elliott Jr. married Elizabeth Myra Long (Elliott) and they were my GG-Grandparents. They had a son, Rabourn Elliott (called Rabe) and he married Elvoria (Elvira) Brown (Elliott) and they were my Great Grand- parents. Most had come from Montgomery Co Virginia to N Carolina, Texas and Oklahoma. Most of my Elliotts are still in Oklahoma and alot buried in the Lake view Cemetary there,and Burbeyville Cemetary. Rabourn had ran the Dexter Texas Ferryboat in about 1850 until he was killed by horsethiefs in 1875. My grandfather and grandmother also ran the Ferryboat,from the time my grandfather Doc Elliott was 13 yrs old. They were a right up also of them. They called him The Riverboat Man and her The Boat Woman.He even took Bonnie and Clyde Parker over into Texas and theyre car, but was by them forcing him to do so. He use to lay on the porch when I was a kid and tell me the stories over and over. I just wanted to share this and too get your opinion. I was real new at this a couple of months ago and upon my short search ran into all of the History I now have. It was on these message boards that got me started. If you know anything I dont sure would be nice to here from you. Thanks for your time. You can contact me at email@example.comJackie
