Elliott Tolliver connection??

Elliott Tolliver connection

My Grandfather, Jefferson Richard Elliott, applied for social security back in 1954 due to health problems. At this time he and wife Gladys were living in Rowan County, KY

Unfortunately, apparently he did not have a birth certificate to prove his age so he had to have three different pieces of evidence to support the claim of his birthdate. One piece of evidence of birthdate submitted was an honorable discharge from the Army dated 6-30-1919. A 2nd piece of substantiating evidence of his claim of age was an affidavit signed by Jeff’s COUSIN C.H. TOLLIVER. C.H. Tolliver’s age was listed as 72 years old at the time he signed this document on 9-30-1954.

So far, we have been unable to establish which side of Jefferson Richard Elliott’s family C. H. Tolliver was associated with. Jeff’s father was Thomas Powell Elliott and his mother was Sarah Alice Ratliff(Ratcliff?). Sarah Alice was married to Marion Frances Ison prior to her marriage to Thomas Powell Elliott.

ANY assistance with either the Tolliver or the Ratliff(Ratcliff) family would be appreciated.

Thanks, Dick Sliger
