Hello Roy, I am from the Virginia branch of McElwee(McIlwee) family. Sorry I do not know of the Shotts connection but have a few questions.My grandmother was Zora A.McElwee Johnson/Joseph W./ John H./ William McIlwee. John H. was the ancestor that moved from Virginia to Delaware County Ohio. Do you have anything on William b. 1701, d. 1840 married Margaret Himelright? They were from Frederick County, VA.
Also do you know when the Virginia-W.Virginia, or the S. Carolina group arrived in the country or they overlapping time wise? This is very interesting to me. Thanks for any information you are willing to share.
I am living in Wisconsin, but have family in Delaware County Ohio. Numbers of my fathers family are buried in Thancher Cemetery, Harlem Township, Delaware County, Ohio.
