Descendants of Joseph Elliott and Gulielma Lamb
of Perquimans, North Carolina

Joseph Elliott married Gulielma Lamb, daughter of Restore Lamb, in 1815 and had four children. After his death about 1822, Gulielma married Davis White and they moved to Wayne County, Indiana. Gulielma died about 1836 at which time Davis White petitioned for guardianship of the minor children of Joseph Elliott. Since it was not explained who Davis White was or that Joseph Elliott had never set foot in Wayne County, I spent a few years in a state of confusion looking for Joseph in Indiana. Gulielma was never mentioned in the probate. The probate file is dated 1853, seventeen years after it was opened.
It is my goal to trace all of their descendant lines into the twentieth century.

My Pet Theory

No records have been located for Joseph Elliott who married Gulielma Lamb. A review of all of the Joseph Elliotts appearing in the Perquimans County records and in the Quaker records did not turn up an obvious candidate (someone the right age) to be a contemporary of Gulielma Lamb. The next consideration is that Joseph may have been older and possibly had a first wife before marrying Gulielma.
In reviewing the Quaker records in Hinshaw for North Carolina, I was struck by the death date for Joseph Elliott, spouse of Jemimah Newby. The table below demonstrates that these two Joseph Elliotts could conceivably be one person. More records from North Carolina will be needed to make a determination.
