I have and now am trying to find John parents Going by format their names may have been William. and Elizabeth.

Terianne thanks for your help. I'm beginning to think the James Elliot you found may be my Line. As I look down the line of John's children I find there are two children Christine and James in that order three years between them b.1808 and 1811 Perhaps after all this time we are on Track. I'm almost but not quite in tears. Once again thanks Trish {Bluebird]

I am wondering if you may have a James Elliot (a shoemaker) in your tree. He was born about 1785 and had a daughter Margaret Elliot born in Ireland and other children 1809-1815 Cavan. Cheers
