Elliott, IN

There isn’t much left of Elliott, Indiana anymore.
It is in the North East quarter of Vanderburg county in Scott Township.

It was established by William Elliott and his father in the mid-19th century.  When the train tracks were put in for the XYZ railroad, William named the access road “Elliott Station Road” and built a train station that was a mail drop-off for Inglefield and McCutchanville, Indiana.
He ran the station until his death in XXXX and was then buried in BlueGrass United Methodist Church cemetery on Cemetery road. He planned at one point to make Elliott a town that would be about the size of Gentryville, Indiana, but after his Second-Empire house at the NE corner of what is now Baseline Road and Old Petersburg Road burned in XXXX and his wife died in XXXX followed by his children x in xxx et-cetera, he lost hope and Elliott, Indiana became a vestigial point on the maps of Norther Vanderburg county.

Blah dee day, fill fill fill.  Tchad Elliott is one of the few Elliott descendants alive today.
