To the readers I give some instructions in tlie perusal of this book. 
You will notice the figures following the names of the family record. 
The first figure stands for the generation, the second the number in the 
family. For instance: see the name of our Great Grandfather — 
Benjamin Elliott, 1-1; his oldest child, 2-1; second, 2-2 and so on, by 
that you will find the generation each belongs to. You will also 
notice the figures 1, 2, 3 and 4 in black type at the left of each para- 
graph indicates the generation down to the 4th that the paragraph 
starts with, except in a few cases. 

It was not thought best to insert much information in regard to 
the wealth or occupation of the different members of the family, or 
anything that would tend to a discrimination between them, socially 
or morally. 

I may here offer my thanks to the many who have assisted me by 
furnishing the records of their own and other families. 

The information respecting some branches of the family was 
obtained near two years ago, and consequently changes may have 
taken place of which no account is given. 

It is pleasing to review the lives of those from whom we derive our 
immediate descent and who have done honor to their family name by 
their talents and their virtues. It has been truly said, "The study of 
a family record elevates and enobles the nature of man, and lifts it up 
to a truer and nobler type. To know nothing' of our ancestry, or from 
whence we came; to have no reverence for the precious memories of the 
past or an interest in those who are to succeed us. in the battle of life, 
is for us to ignore the elements and influences that have made us what 
we are, to repudiate the natural instincts and affections of the human 
heart and to suppress the aspirations and hojies of a soul on its course 
on through endless cycles of eternity. 

A study of the jjioneer life of our forefathers could not fail to be 
both interesting and instructive to us, who have, as it were, placed 
ourselves out of the sight of the immediate past, merged ourselves so 
deeply in the concerns of the present, as to regard the scenes through 
which our ancestors passed as almost a myth. 

Let us, however, try to forget the present for a brief period, and 
transport ourselves in imagination to the rude log cabin of our Grand- 
fathers, when they reaped their grain with the reap hook (or hand 
sickle as we called it when I was a boy ) and compare those days with 


the self binder of today. How interesting those early scenes would 
look now in this age of progress to see the women and girls with their 
reap hooks reaping the golden grain. Our ancestors in those days 
had to endure many privations of the necessaries of life. The most 
rigid simplicity was observed in furniture, food and dress, as the 
women and girls had to spin and weave and make their clothing for 
fathers, mothers and children. It is greatly to be regretted that 
incidents and experiences of the pioneer life of our ancestors have not 
been preserved, as it would certainly not only be interesting, but prof- 
itable to us all, as decendants of the pioneer forefafhers herein men- 
tioned, to be acquainted with particulars of their lives; but when we 
contemplate the trials and dangers through which they passed in their 
struggles for existence in a new country, and the difficulties which met 
them on every hand, we need not wonder that so little time was devoted 
to writing and so little attention paid to the preservation of family 
records. Had the work of compiling this family record been attended 
to years ago, when the older members of the family were still living, 
much valuable and interesting information relating to our ancestors, 
could have been obtained which is now lost, but such as has been 
written is herewith presented, with the hope that, while it may be a 
disappointment to expectations, yet it may serve the purpose intended 
and be appreciated by those who may read the following pages. For 
those who have roamed the same hills and traversed the same valleys 
in childhood, it will certainly be a pleasant pastime to review the lives 
of their former associates, add thus recall with fond delight, the long 
lost scenes of the past, and the old homestead around which cluster 
many pleasant memories. JESSE C. VANS YOG. 

At Union Meeting house, three miles east of Zanesfield, .^ogan 
County, Ohio, October 1st, 1875; in answer to an invitation extended 
to the Elliot family, about 130 of the descendants of Benjamin El- 
liot and their companions met near the time appointed, and after a 
friendly and cheeriul introduction, many of them being strangers to 
each other, they partook of a bountiful dinner provided for the oo- 

The company being called to order, Simon D. Elliot was ap- 
pointed chairman, and Asa Elliot and Enoch Wickersham, Secretaries. 
The object of the meeting being stated by the chairman, to-wit: A 
reunion of the family and its connections, renewing and strengthening 
the bond of love and friendship that has heretofore existed, and the 
encouragement to cherish and cultivate that love in their families 
as they become scattered and separated, that will qualify them to 
take their places in the church and the world, assisting by their 
counsel and influence to withstand the torrent of sin and iniquity that 
prevails in our country. 

John D. Elliot then read the following paper, sketching from 
memory the following short history of the Elliot family which was 
directed to be printed and copied with the proceedings of this meet- 
ing and then sent to each family where their residence is known. 

"In attempting to write some account of the family, I have neither 
resource for information but memory and therefore shall be very 
liable to make many mistakes. Much of what I know of our ancestors 
was learned while a boy in listening to the conversations of my 
grandparents, and others of the family. If I remember my Grand- 
father's Grandfather's name it was John Elliott. (The name was 
spelled "Eliot" until my Grandfather's time and he still contended 
that was the right way.) Of this first ancestor all I know is that 
he came from England in company with many others about the time 
the company came over with Wm. Penn, some of his relatives being 
in New England of whom John Elliot the great Indian Missionary 
was one. Our branch of the family settling in Pennsylvania, near 
Philadelphia. Of this family all I know of is three sons named Ben- 
jamin, Jacob, and Abraham. The two latter moved to South Carolina, 
leaving- Benjamin in York, or Chester County, Pennsylvania. 

Soon after the Revolutionary War he moved with his wife and 
some of his children to what is now Washington County, Pennsylvan- 

1 — The children of our Great Grandfather, Benjamin Elliot, 1-1 
were: John, 2-1, Isaac, 2-2; Absalom, 2-3; and Lydia, 2-4; all of which 
I remember well, and one, named Mary, 2-5, who married Samuel 

2 — John Elliot, 2-1, the eldest of the sons of Benjamin married 
Providence Parson in Pennsylvania and moved to Columbiana coun- 


ty, Ohio, about the year 1814. Had two sons, Joseph, 3-1 and John 

3 — Joseph, 3-1 married Elizabeth, and John, 3-2, married Martha 
Randal, two sisters, both of them lived on the land bought by their 
father in great harmony until, the death of their father who made 
his home with John, about four miles south of Salem, Ohio. Joseph, 
iSPl |h ad four sons and two daughters — John, 4-1; James, 4-2; Moses, 
4-3; Enoch, 4-4; Rebecca, 4-5; and Lydia, 4-6. John is deceased. 
His three brothers still live in the same neighborhood. Twoi of them, 
JMoses and Enoch on the same homestead. But afterwards they mov- 
ed to Clark County, Iowa, seven miles south of Osceola, where 
they died. Rebecca married a man by the name of Charles Darrh, 
tut in a few years was left a widow. She is now In Iowa. 

4 — Lydia, 4r6, married John Coffee who died in a few years and 
she still resides near Salem, Ohio. 

3 — John, 3-2, brother of Joseph, sold his land in Columbiana 
county, about the year 1750 and removed to Logan county, Ohio. His 
children were: John, 4-1; Joseph, 4-4; Isaac, 4-2; Mary, 4-3; and 
Miram, 4-5. Mary married Andrew Pettit, and is now living near 
Grand Junction, Iowa. John married Almira Hathaway. He is now 
deceased. Had three children, Elmer, 5-1; Vinton, 5-2; and Flora, 5-3; 
who live with their mother on the farm bought or Jerub Baldwin. 
Soon after, they moved to Logan county, Ohio. Joseph, 4-4, married 
Ellen Kinsey. Their children, Josephine, 5-1; Martha, 5-2; Thaddeus, 
5-3; and Lawrence, 5-4; and lives about three miles northeast of 
West Mansfield, Logan County, Ohio. 

4 — Isaac 4-2, married, but died soon after. His widow lives in or 
near Brighton, Beaver County, Pennsj^lvania. Miram, 4-5, never mar- 
ried. She lives with her sister-in-law on the farm formerly owned 
by her father, who deceased a few years ago, leaving her an interest 
in it, her lifetime. 

2— Absalom, 2-3, youngest son of Benjamin, married in Pennsyl- 
vania, was a Baptist minister. He removed about the year 1810 to Clark 
was a Baptist minister. He removed about the year 1810 to Clark 
County, Indiana. We know but little about his family. His son, 
James, 3-1, went as a soldier under General Harrison, was in the bat- 
tle of Tippecanoe, where the General had his headquarters. He set- 
tled after marriage in that neighborhood near his wife's father. She 
still retained many of the characteristics of backwoods life. When 
I saw her in 1837, near Rochester, Fulton County, Indiana, she told 
me that when their first child was about six months old, while sitting 
in their log cabin, their large dog lying on the floor and the child 
asleep in a trough, for a cradle, she heard the dog growl and looking 
out saw a large panther outside the fence that enclosed the door- 
yard. She arose and fastened the door. Told the dog to watch the 
baby and she crept out of back window, ran to her fathers, one-half 
mile off, got a gun and shot the panther. 

3— The last I heard of James, 3-1, he was in Stark County, Indiana. 
His oldest sons name was Absalom, 4-1. He had two daughters mar- 
ried when I was there. John, 5-3; Absalom's 4-1 son I think never 

married, was rather a roving unsettled man. 

Absalom. 5-4, son of Absalom, 4-1, the last account that I have 
had of him he still lived in Southern Indiana but of his family we can 
give no account. I might mention here that in traveling in both 
Carolina and Indiana we have found many of our name, and of other 
names wlio claim to be descendants of Jacob and Abram Elliot of 

2 — We will commence with Isaac, 2-2, Elliot, our grandfather, son 
of Benjamin, 1-1. He was born the day of 1756, in York County, 
Pennsylvania. He marrried Alice Wilkinson, daughter of Joseph 
Wilkinson of London Grove, Pennsylvania. Their children were 
Benjamin, 3-1; Joseph, 3-2; Isaac, 3-3; Elizabeth, 3-4; Alice, 3-5; Mary, 
3-6; Moses, 3-7; and Francis, 3-8. Benjamin, 3-1, married Susannah 
Supler in Washington County, Pennsylvania, and removed with his 
family to Stark County, Ohio, about the year 1811 or 1812. He there 
built a grist-mill and saw-mill on a beautiful stream called "Deer 
Creek". This was a great advantage to the people who most of them 
were newly settled on their lands.

his first children most of them are in Oregon. Susannah, 4-5; mar- 
ried James Rochell, who is deceased leaving two sons and one daugh- 
ter, Benjamin, 5-1; Lynus,5-2; and Harriet, 5-3. She married the

years. They had one daughter, Susannah, 5-4. She married a man by 
the name of Sherick. Rachel Elliot, 4-6, married Abraham Vanscoyoc,

5-4; Rachel, 5-5; Benjamin, 5-6; Ottimer, 5-7; and India, 5-8. He 
married a second wife by the name of Unis Scott, (she was a spiritual- 
ist.) They went to Hayti by the directions of the spirits and she 
died there. He came back to America and brought all his children ex- 
cept Angeline, 5-2, who was married and died in Hayti. He mar- 
ried the third wife by the name of Nancy McCrerory. Edith, Absalom 
and Jonathan are deceased. Jonathan and Absalom have left 
children but their names are not known to me. Johnathan's old- 
were newly settled on their lands. ( See also pag-e 17. ) 

I may mention a circumstance before leaving the family of Ben- 
jamin Elliot, that there is a silver headed cane in the family of 
Benjamin Elliot, son of Benjamin, that belonged to Benjamin Elliot 

8 _^_ 

with the initials of his name and date on it, date not remembered, 
but sometime in 1780. I have seen it, which was to descend to the 
next oldest, Benjamin Elliot in perpetuity. Now I am done with the 
family of Benjamin, 3-1. I shall have to be more brief in treating of 
others for I find time will not admit of a detailed account.

After reading the aforesaid essay by John D. Elliot, Jerub Bald- 
win, the oldest member of the family (now nearly fourscore) gave 
an account of his connection with the family by marriage, 58 years 
ago, and which has continued with uninterrupted friendship to this 


time. Interesting and instructive remarks were made by Benjamin 
Elliot, 4-1, and his son William Elliot, 5-1, of Michigan. Also by 
Mary Elliot, Jonah Baldwin, Joseph Elliot, Thomas McCall, Simon D. 
Elliot, 5-1, Ellis Akey and several others, all tending to encourage- 
ment in the practical duties of every day christian life, and to keep 
clear of any intoxicating drinks and the use of tobacco, as having a 
tendency to lead into great extremes of crime and destitution. The 
following resolution by S. D. Elliot, 5-1, was unaminously adopted. 

"Resolved, that the Elliot family be Invited to attend at this 
place on the 5th day of November, A. D., 1876 in a reunion and each 
family is requested to forward to John D. Elliot, 4-1, Zanesfield, Logan 
County, Ohio, such account of their families and their history for him 
to prepare it for reading at the next meeting."

In my attempt in adding to the aforesaid history of the Elliot 
and Vansyoc family record, which was compiled by John D. Elliot in 
the year 1875 down to that date, quite a portion of what I learned of 
the Geneology of the Elliot and Vansyoc families was when a young 
man in conversation wita my father's oldest brother, Abraham Va:i- 
syoc, who was born in the year 1785, and I being personally acquaint- 
ed with quite a number of the different families contained in th'i 
above history of the descendants down to the present time. Still ma 
have made some mistakes, as I found it a greater task than I first 
anticipated it would be in my 74th and 75th years of age; not having 
any experience in this line of business . 

In commemoi'ation of our beloved relative, John D. Elliot, who 
was a minister of the society of Friends for many years, we are 
thankful for the information he g"ave us in comiDiling- the Geneolog-y of 
the first part of this history of the Elliot and Vansyoc descendants 
since settling in America. " He is now numbered with the sleeping 
Saints waiting till the voice of the Archangel comes with the trump 
of God, and the dead in Christ is raised immortal, 1st Thess, 4th 
Chapter . We hope every one named in this book may have the happy 
privilege of meeting in the Golden City of the New Jerusalem. 

Yours in hope,

Aaron S. Watkins, 5-9; is nominated for Vice President of the 
United States on thie Prohibition ticket of the year 1908. He is son of 
Rebecca Elliot, 4-6; daughter of Joseph, 3-2 and Elizabeth, (John) 
Elliot, her husband, William Watkins. 

In conversation with an old g-entleman in Marion county, Iowa, by 
the name of Jeremiah Elliot, (now deceased) a number of years a,go, 
he told me he visited James Elliot, 4-5, (son of Isaac 3-3) in Logan 
county, Ohio, and in tracing- the Geneolog-y of their ancestors back to 
Benjamin, Jacob and Abraham on the first page of this book, they 
found they were of the same family. All I know of Jeremiah's rela- 
tives was a brother of his I was acquainted with, named Oscar, who died 
several years ago, and two sons of Jeremiah, named John B. Elliot, 
President of the National Bank of Knoxville, Marion county, Iowa, 
and Jeremiah, John's brother, who died several years ago.
