Author: jim81zach83 Surnames: Elliot, Minto, Shortreed, Hudson, Helms Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.elliot/704/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Traced my Elliot family from St. Louis/ E. St. Louis area back to ggggrandfather Henry Elliot born Jedburgh, Scotland in 1801. His sister Mary was born 1805. I don't know what happened to her. In 1823, he married Mary Shortreed, born 1799 in Jedburgh. Henry and Mary Shortreed Elliot immigated to the US with their children c.1850. Several sons appear to have gone on to the US earlier. Their daughter, Mary, married William Hudson in England before moving here with their daughter, Mary, who married my great grandfather James Wesley Helms I. Looking for parentage and family information on Henry's parents, Henry Elliot, cited as a decendant of Stobs, and Jened (Jeanette) Minto, presumably from the Jedburgh area, both born probably c. 1775-1785. Also looking for information on parentage and family of Mary Shortreed of Jedburgh. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
