Hallo, I am researching my Elliott family - Samuel ELLIOTT (possible father was Robert) married Roseanna Devlin/Davellin 7 October 1850 Wood Chapel, Ardtrea, Maghurafelt County Derry. They had at least 7 children, of which 3 - Roseanna, Robert and Elizabeth died as infants. The surviving children that I know of are - a second Robert, John James, a female who I have no name for and Martha. There could be more. My g.grandfather was John James Elliott and he came to New Zealand. His brother Robert came to NZ before him but then went on to America. Is anyone else researching this Elliott family.
