William Elliot
The following, regarding William Elliot and his family, was extracted from the book, History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of Its Pioneers and Prominent Men (Boyd Crumrine, editor):

     William Elliot came from Canton township to this section, and purchased a part of the tract of land taken up by Robert Ralston.  On this farm he settled, and the farm was left to his son, J. S. Elliot, who was born on the place, and was at one time county commissioner.  His son, J. S. Elliot, and his widow, now reside on the property.
