Margaret and John's son Alexander and John's mother were Roman Catholics. (1851 Canadian Census).
We know that Margaret Elliott married John McIntosh because it is in the 1835 marriage record of their son Alexander, shown. Alexander and his wife Rosanna Hughes were married in a Roman Catholic ceremony at St. Mark's Parish, Prescott, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada. We do not know Margaret and John's religion. Their son Alexander's wife was from Ireland, and they were Catholics.
Some Ancestry sites list some Elliott siblings, along with Jacob and Henry, for whom I found graves, but no proof of relationship to Margaret. They were said to be Loyalists from Dutchess County, New York. Margaret's husband John also had a Loyalist father from New York, it is believed. The Ancestry site gives Margaret's husband as John McIntosh and her father as JONATHAN, but then lists Jacob and Henry as siblings buried with JOHN, not Jonathan, McIntosh. Some sites list birth place as DELAWARE, but this is probably Delaware COUNTY, New York, where our Alexander McIntosh (b 1744) was said to have owned land at Harper's Ferry, Delaware County, New York. However, there are questions as to whether this Alexander is OUR Alexander.
The Canadian 1851 Census has a Margrit McIntosh born in USA, Methodist, age 71, living in Elizabethtown, Leeds County, Ontario, Canada. Could she be this Margaret?
Is this a relative? Lieutenant William Elliott, of Captain Elisha Robinson's company of lower Ninety-Six regiment of militia, fought at King's Mountain and was probably killed there. Here also fought Lieutenant Thomas Cunningham, of Major Patrick Cunningham's company, and was wounded and taken prisoner. The memorial of Sergeant James White of Cotton's Ninety Six militia is in T. 50/2.
