Photo of Young Siblings James Dalton Elliott & Miriam Velma Elliott of Lakeland, Florida
Circa 1900 photograph of siblings James Dalton Elliott and Miriam Velma Elliott of Lakeland, Florida. The photograph was taken by the Ward Pender studio of Lakeland.
From online research, hopefully correct:
James Dalton Elliott and his sister Miriam Velma Elliott were the children of Dudley Dalton Elliott and wife Ida Isabelle (Lanier) Elliott, both born in Florida. Their paternal grandparents were Irvin Hilton Elliott and his first wife Diana Hester (Beaman) Elliott. Their maternal grandparents were James S. and Sarah Miriam (Turner) Lanier.
James Dalton Elliott was born 29 December 1896 at Kathleen, Florida. In 1918, he married Eurie Alberta Hebb, who was born 13 December 1900, the daughter of Nicholas Harris Heb and wife Harriet Tallulah "Lula" (Folsom) Heb.
James and Eurie lived at Lakeland, Florida, where they raised several children.
Miriam Velma Elliott was born 30 December 1898. I found a reference online where she died 27 May 1989 but I haven't found the actual source myself. I didn't find a marriage for her.
If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
This post originally included another photograph, that of a young woman identified as Elsie Elliot, but Elsie is now featured in a post of her own. She was the daughter of Llewellyn Ansel Elliot and Effie May (Roseburrough) Elliot of Ames, Iowa. At age 43, Elsie married a Mr. Ramsey and moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The photographs were found together but whether the siblings and Elsie are related, or if Elliott and Elliot are merely coincidental, I don't know.
