Looking for info on Sarah Matilda Elliot Swisher born October 7, 1876, in Pacquet Newfoundland. Her Mother's name was Mary Elliot and she had 12 brothers and sisters. She immigrated to Kokomo, Indiana in June of 1908 wher she lived until she died in 1969.

Is anyone aware of more children for Jacob and Mary Elliott ca. 1835? Could be a connection to my Sarah Matilda Elliot, born 1876. She had claimed to be from a family of 13 children. She always spoke of Newfoundland, Saint Johns, and Nova Scotia. I did not heard anything of Pacquet until I found it listed on her Border Crossing Records.

From Canadian Immigration and Border Crossing records on Ancesty I have found out:

She traveled to Sydney Town, Nova Scotia as a "Domestic" in 1898 (1901 Census)

May 1908, she lists Mrs Mary Elliot of Pacquet, NFLD, as next of kin on Border Crossing card to Buffalo, New York. On same card, states came to Sydney in Nov, 1906 on SS Brxxx (maybe Bruce, I found a ship name, but not the record of her arriving). Also states her last permanent residence at that time was Toronto.

June, 1908 Border Crossing to Black Rock, NY states same info plus ultimate destination as Kokomo, Indiana to see "Mrs. Porter".

By December, 1908 she had married in Kokomo, Indiana.
Do you know how to get access to 1861 NFLD census, I have not seen this online anywhere?

Anyhow, hoping someone might be able to help me fill in some blanks on the Canadian side of things, this is my first foray North of the Border.

Thanks,

Esther Smith

I don't know if you are aware but there is a great website that posts all kinds of birth marriage death cemetery transcriptions census etc.. for newfoundland it is called Newfoundland Grand Banks. I think the web address is www.chebucto.org/newfoundland or something to that effect. Good Luck trying to find out about your Elliot. I am searching for a Amelia Elliott but do not have any info on her siblings or parents only that she married my great great grandfather Alfred Rice in Newfoundland.

Thanks for the response. Sarah was born in 1876 in Newfoundland, not sure if it was in Pacquet. On her immigration record in 1908 to the United States, her next of kin is listed as mother, Mary Elliot in Pacquet. Do you know anything about Mary in 1908? If William was born in 1858 they could be siblings but the list I have seen for William doesn't include any Sarahs or siblings born in the 1870's. I don't know any of her siblings, but she said there was 13 of them. Also, I don't know who Sarah's father was but she named her sons Robert Bramwell and William Russell. With Pacquet being so tiny, I would assume some relationship. Any ideas?
