Quarterman Family History Project

Col. John Elliott (-1791)

John Elliott, Senior, would presumably be the one who married Amarinthia ``Renchie'' Norman in 1790 and died in 1791. He was referred to in at least two sources as a Colonel.

His son, John Elliott Junior, was a U.S. Senator.

How could Senator Elliott be a son of Col. Elliott if the former was married to Renchie Norman? Well, she was married three times (to Thomas Quarterman, to Col. John Elliott, and to Rev. Cyrus Guildersleeve), and that was common in those days; if your spouse died of war or the all-too-frequent diseases, find another. Probably Col. Elliott was married to someone who died before he married Renchie Norman. Does anyone know to whom?
