Do you have access to Census of Denton Co TX Years 1900/1910/1920??
I am seeking any information on these households:
husband: Jack Elliott/Elliot
wife: Hettie (Criss) Elliott/Elliot
mother-in-law: Elizabeth (Donaldson) Criss - widow
brother-in-law: Jackson/Sumpter Criss
Head of household: Elizabeth Donaldson Criss - my ancestor
son: Jackson/Sumpter Criss
Head of household: Jackson or Sumpter Criss
I am looking for the family of Jack Elliott and Hettie Criss Elliott who married and moved from Galveston Island to the Denton, TX, area around 1898-1899 timeframe. This couple is found in the 1890 Census in Galveston, TX, Jack being a boarder in the household of Elizabeth Criss and her daughter Hettie Criss and son Jackson Criss in Galveston, TX. It is told that when Hettie and Jack Elliott married, they took Hettie's mother and brother with them and they moved to Denton, TX. Jack Elliott taught at the University of North Texas in Denton. Their exodus from Galveston just prior to the Storm of 1900 might have saved their lives.
I'd appreciate any help or referral to anyone who is researching this Elliott family.
Dona (Criss) Terry, Houston
