Notes

Note N126History of the Elmore Family with Biographical Notes, "...was a major in Hinman's regiment in 1775, and afterwards a Colonel in the New York line." "Samuel adopted the spelling Elmore, the name having been so spelled on his commission. In the old Connecticut records it is spelled Elmer, Elmar, Elmor, and Elmore; such variances in spelling nmes being then very common. In 1779 - 1781, he was a Representative from Sharon, Conn., in the General Assembly. About 1801, he removed from Sharon to Vermont, where the town of Elmore is named after him. His son John, who died at Canaan Corner,Conn., was a representative in the general assembly thirteen times between 1802 and 1815, and his son, John, Jr., was a representative from the same town in 1837. He died in 1856." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Elmore Historical Notes, by William Cronk Elmore Jonathan Elmore resided in Wilton, then a part of Norwalk, CT. His name first appears in the town records of lands in 1712. In 1716, he was rated an inhabitant, and drawn as a grand juror. He conveyed land to Edward Elmer (a brother) in 1735. In 1733, he was a deacon in the church. In a history of Sharon, CT, by Gen. Chas. F. Sedgwick, it is stated that Deacon JonathanElmer came to Sharon from Norwalk in 1746, and resided there until his death in 1758. Several of Jonathan's children accompanied him to Sharon. One of them, Samuel, became a Colonel in the Revolutionary army. Col. Samuel Elmer adopted the spelling Elmore for his name, it having been so spelled in his commission, and he was also told by some British officers that Elmore was the way it was spelled in England. He appears to have persuaded some of his brothers, nephews and nieces to adopt this spelling. About 1801, Samuel moved to Vermont, where the town of Elmore was named after him, and presumably the mountain and state park bearing the name Elmore that appear on a map of the state.
