John was the older brother of my ggGrandmother Margaret Elliot. This Elliot family was from Bewcastle, Cumberland, England. John, his brother Robert & possibly 2 other siblings (Thomas & Mary Ann) came to New York in the mid 1840's and settled in Sennett. Margaret Marrs nee Elliot (my ancestor) & her sister Violet Elliot arrived in New York in 1855. Violet married John Lawman in 1857 in Sennett. John Elliot married Jane (surname unknown) about 1848 & remained in Sennett for many years. John is still alive in 1905, aged 82. I suspect that Jane's family was from Darlington, England. Bewcastle is much further west by Carlisle. Thanks for sharing the image of the envelope. Finding a letter from that time period would certainly be a wonderful genealogical discovery!
