Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it very much. I already have the sources you mentioned, and have traced the Elliott Line back to the 1600s, but for some reason there doesn't seem to be any information on my great grandmother Mary Washburn's ancestors. My Elliott family bible has an entry saying she was born in Atholl, MA to Joseph and Mary Washburn, but I contact the records office there and they didn't find anything. If you find something, please let me know! Apparently the Washburn family in England can be traced back to Tancred, a Viking that raided in Normandy with Rollo, the ancestor of William the Conqueror.
