DESCENDANTS of JAMES and NANCY SHIELDS ELLIOTT
Jasper Newton, the ninth child of James and Nancy Shields Elliott was born Jan. 9. 1833 was deeply religious, always a student and became well educated and a very successful teacher fro several years before going to Minn., in 1858. He married Kizziah Green in 1856. They came with the family to Washington County, Kansas in 1860 and settled on the NE one-fourth of section 23, township 1, range 4.
He was active in organizing class meeting and Sunday school in the community, also in getting the school district No. 4 established. He secured the traveling library for the Sunday School which proved a great blessing in the country. He was interested in the civic welfare of the country as well, filling the office on the school board and also served as Justice of the peace for many years. He taught the first two terms of school in district No. 4 in 1866 and 1867, at $25.00 per month and boarded himself. The school terms were three months.
He was powerful in prayer and song service. The writer has heard him singing a mile distant, the words coming clear and distinctly on the still evening air. He was known through out the country for his integrity, justice and honesty. He enjoyed a life of service to humanity. In teaching, he rewarded all good work done and gave prizes for bible verses committed to memory in the Sunday School. He was not slow in his sense of wit; one cold morning in Nov. 1875, someone remarked, “It was too cold for peach blossoms.” Jasper replied, “but I see you have Beanblossoms,” referring to a bright little lad near by who bore that name.
The paternal love was strong in all the Elliott family, they were all lovers of children and he was no exception. No children come to bless their home yet their hearts and home welcomed and cared for a number of children in the early days of Kansas, boarding them and sending them to school. Three children were cared fro from early childhood until grown and settled in homes of their own.
In 1875 he sold the home and moved to Benton Co., Ark., where he engaged in raising fruit, putting out a large apple orchard. This work and the environment were not conductive to his health, which was more or less broken for ten years. He passed away April 10, 1892. His wife survived him 23 years. They are both buried in a rural cemetery near Bloomfield, Ark.
DESCENDANTS of JAMES and NANCY SHIELDS ELLIOT
Nancy McCaleb Elliott, the tenth and smallest of al the children of James and Nancy Shields Elliott was born Dec. 24, 1835, in Fulton Co., Indiana. She was truly a Christ like gift. Her spirit of hope, faith and love of humanity never wavered nor warned throughout all the years of her long life of 87 years. The multitude of cares and anxieties usually necessary in the rearing of a family of tem children of her own left no lines of care on her broad brow, nor dimmed the joy in her large blue eyes. Her reply to a niece who questioned the future and her duty, is a sermon never forgotten, when she said, “Well my time and duties are in the hands of the Lord and whatever is his will is mine.”
She married Thomas Gilbert brown, April 24, 1855. He came from New York and had two children by a previous marriage, which made 12 in all to care for. They first settled on a farm south of the Little Blue River, opposite from her father’s claim. Later they sold and took land just across the state line, who and one-half miles southeast of Steele city in Jefferson Co., Nebr. Six of their ten children were born here. Thomas was a judge of good land and a very good provider. While not a professional Christian when he married into the Elliott family, he later joined the church and became a deacon.
Alice Brown a stepdaughter married a fine man named William Fuller. Their four children are Charles, born in 1870 in Washington Country, Kansas; Stella and on other girl and Paul Fuller. Paul has worked in the ford Auto Shops for more than 20 years. Leander Brown, the other stepchild married Melinda Kellum in Benton Co., Ark. Their home is in Ponca City, Okla.
Nancy Elliott Brown survived her husband 15, years or more. They are buried near Cherokee City, Benton Co., Ark, in a beautiful country cemetery. Their children are as follows: Rebecca Ann born may 7, 1856 in Fulton Co., Minnesota: Ida Bell Brown, Born May 4, 1864 in Jefferson Co., Nebraska: Amy Dell Brown, born Mach 20, 1866 in Jefferson Co., NE: Ruth Jane Brown born Feb. 7, 1869 and Ulysses Grant Brown, born May 15, 1871 both born in Jefferson Co., Ne: Lillian brown, born Sept. 13, 1875 and John Elliott brown born Feb. 16, 1875, both born in Benton Co., Arkansas.
Many interesting incidents could be told of the early days in Indiana, Minnesota and Kansas that make traditional history.

The eleventh child of James and Nancy Elliott was Isaac Tipton. He was possessed of the same quiet, sunny temperament, of his sister Nancy, with the same undaunted spirit of faith and hope that trust in humanity and God’s protecting care. He was born Feb. 6, 1837. He took a claim joining that of his brother-in-law, Emery derrick in Washington Col., Kansas in 1860, but relinquished his claim to his brother-in-law Alex Miller when he insisted in the Civil war in 1862. He served for three years in the 13th Reg. Kansas Volunteers, Co., H, under Col. Moonlight and Col. Bowen and Gen. Blunt. He was sent home on sick furlough at one time but under the care of his mother he was able to return to his company. At one time, they tell of him, doing picket duty one dark rainy night in a dense wood, the rebel sharpshooters were passing in squads and shooting frequently, when Isaac called out, “Look out there boys, don’t shoot, you will hit somebody yet,” and the firing seemed to cease for a time.
One time, on his homestead, after the war he had a fine cabbage patch and remarked that we would raise cabbage whether it rained o not as he could irrigate it near the river. The cabbage grew into perfect heads but he failed to reckon with the grasshoppers, which come in swarms and didn’t leave a stalk of cabbage.
His religion was in his kindness of heart more than in song and audible prayer, and his happy sunny spirit of hope.
In 1866 he married Margaret Davis, his cousin. There seemed never to be a discordant note in their home. The little town of Hollenberg, Kansas in now located on their homestead.
Their children are: Mary Etta born Nov. 1, 1869 on the homestead: Frank Elliott, only son was born June 11, 1873 at Bethany, Mo. In 1871 Isaac sold the homestead and moved to Bethany, Mo., where he was employed as section foreman until his death, in 1914. His wife, Margaret survived him more than 20 years.

Jesse Shields Elliott, twelfth child of James and Nancy Elliott, was born June 10, 1840 in Cass County, Indiana. He went with his parents to southern Minnesota in 1858, coming to Kansas in 1860. A year later he married Ann Lorena Morgan in Washington Co., Kans. He enlisted in the Civil War in 1862 in Co. H, 13th Kansas Regular Volunteers under Col., Thomas M. Bowen serving without furlough until the war closed. He was lost in the Boston Mountains of the Ozarks four days, unable to find his way because of rain and dense clouds. In his wandering he came upon a horse with saddle and bridle on, tangled in the brush; with this means he was able, by letting the horse follow his own will, to come safely to a house and from there he later joined his regiment. This was just after the battle of Pea Ridge. He served under Gen. Blunt.
He reached home in June 1865 and took a claim along the Little Blue; Jesse homesteaded the quarter adjoining his brother Isaac’s claim and moved his family there in the spring of 1866. Five years later the Union Pacific R. R. was built and the town of Hollenberg was laid out. Jesse built the first hotel in the town.
He was decidedly a Shields in looks and temperament, was a member of the Masonic Lodge and after locating in Lewis Co., Washington, he served for several years as Marshall or doorkeeper in the Legislature at Olympics
He was a believer in Divine Providence and like all the Elliott’s he was a lover of children and always had a fund of songs and stories from them. As a child, I remember how happy we always were to see “Uncle Jess.” The happiest hours of his declining years were those spent with his own grand children.
Of their four children, only one lived to adult age, namely Lelia Agnes, born Aug. 20, 1862. She marred William Lyona in Chautauqua County, Kansas. Lafayette Morgan Elliott, their only son was born at Hollenbeg about 1868 or 1869 and died near Bloomfield, Ark., in 1879 or 1880.
After living in Lewis Co., Washington near Winlock for 25 years or more, Jesse and wife moved to Sunnyside in the Yakima Valley where Jesse passed away Sept. 1909 followed a few years later by his wife; both are buried at Sunnyside, Washington and their children live near there.

The youngest child of James and Nancy Elliott was Rebecca Ann born Jan. 3, 1843 in Cass Co., Ind. She was named Rebecca for a younger sister of her mother.

A few months later her husband enlisted in the Civil War, Rebecca remained with her parents.
The father, James Elliott passed away near the close of the Civil War, In Sept. 1965. He had requested that Lafayette and Rebecca remain with her mother in the parental home, this they did until early in 1874, when they moved to Rice Co., Kansas, later they joined other relatives in Benton County, Ark., where Miles, their only son passed away suddenly on Dec. 23,1876.

DESCENDANTS Of WILLIAM and MARGARET WILSON SHIELDS
Samuel, the sixth child was born in 1800. He married and had two children, later separating from his wife. He is spoken of as being “the only Shields known to prove unfaithful to his marriage vows. It was thought he went to Illinois with Joseph in 1836 or 37.”
The three younger children were Rhonda born in 1802 and married Nathan Rose who was associated with John Lindsey in 1829, in building the dam and corn cracker mill for the government, near Rochester, Ind, to provide food for the Pottawatomie Indians.
The several children of the Rose’s were: Ezekiel, Elizabeth, James, Margaret Ann and Cyrus. There may have been more, but as far we have been unable to find any of their descendants. They came to Missouri in the early 50’s or before.
Rebecca Shields, born in 1805, married John Davis near Madison. Ind. They too, came into Missouri along with the Roses or earlier and lived in Westport near Kansas City later taking up land near Atchison, Kansas. The Roses also lived near them and in Buchanan County, Mo., at one time. All race of the Rose family seems to have been lost during the Civil War.
The youngest daughter of Wm. Shield, named Jeannette, called Jenny, married Wm. Williamson. They may have remained in Indiana. We have only the descendants of Rebecca Shields and John Davis as follows:
