Amos Wilson Elliot was born December 31, 1841 to Thomas "Matthew" Elliott and Anna "Ann" Wilson Elliott in Meigsville, Morgan, Ohio, United States. He married Elizabeth Jane (Henkle) Elliott (1843–1880) on August 5, 1862 in Rensselaer, Jasper, Indiana, United States. Elizabeth was also possibly known as Eliza or Etza. The couple had several children including Alice Elliott also later known as Alice Mitchell. Her name unofficially changed when her maternal aunt and uncle raised her after sometime Alice's first birthday. Their other children were likely Henry, George, Harry, Atwood, Anna, Ida, Wilson. Alice was the last child in the family but was really the kids cousin.[1]
