Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Margaret THOMPSON ELLIOTT

In 1840 the Clark Co, IL census listed Margret Ellitt as head of the house with 1 male under 5, 1 at 20-30, 1 female under 5, 2 at 5-10, 1 at 10-25, and herself at 30-40. The only other "Ellit" in the county was Joseph Ellitt.

Apparently she and Rubartus Guy were separated at census time in 1860 as Margaret was head of the house and Rubartus lived alone. That census recorded Margaret, 57, b VA, with only $40 in personal property, and living with her were children Nancy Porter, 31, born IN; Elizabeth Elliot, 26, and William T Guy, 20, both born in IL; and Nancy's children, Rachel J, 10, and William, 3, born IL.
