Specifically a William Elliott who had two brothers named Abraham an Edward. Also William had possibly four sons; two of them were named Thomas and Abraham. Thank you for any help. Wm. Elliott

You are correct. William & Archibald Elliott were brothers and William Sr. their father and grandfather named Archibald. William married Jane or some say Jean Clark and Archibald married her sister, Sarah Clark. Their father was James Clark and he married Elizabeth Summers. Elizabeth Summers the daughter of John Summers & Elizabeth Thompson. They each had children all with same names so its very hard to tell them apart. This is my family line.
