The Elam Family Research Page
NORMA NEILL'S ENGLISH & AMERICAN ELAM
DATABASES ARE NOW ON-LINE!!! SEE LINK BELOW IN THE "CONTENTS" SECTION!!!
I am actively researching the Elam family
in the U.S. and England. Thus far, my father and I have traced our roots
back to James Elam and Alice Shirecliffe of Yorkshire England and Robert
Elam, also from somewhere in Yorkshire, England, who immigrated to Virginia
The Elam family reportedly owned
several ships and made voyages between England and Virginia during this
time period. Robert and his family lived near the Jamestown Colony in Henrico
County, Virginia. My line of Elams lived in Henrico and Chesterfield County,
Virginia, until sometime in the early 1800s when Jesse Elam moved to Warren
County, Kentucky. Jesse subsequently moved to Dallas County, Texas, where
he died in 1854. The rest of my line are all Texans.
My personal research goal is to locate
Robert and Ann's origins in England and to trace the family back from there.
In addition to my direct line, I also collect all Elams (and spelling variations
thereon) in the hope of being able to help others in their Elam family
I maintain a database (see "surname" link below)
consisting of names that I have found, as well as information submitted
to me by fellow researchers. If you have any additional names, dates, etc.
that you would like to have added to the database or if you see anything
that needs correcting (with this many names I have a hard time catching
everything) PLEASE let me know. Also, if you have any suggestions on how
I can make these pages better or easier to use, drop me an e-mail.
