       I have spent some time on Andrew Eliot and Polly Amazeen but do not have much to show for it. I have traced Andrew on the New Castle tax lists from 1791 to 1796. He was on the 1796 list but never thereafter in New Castle. In addition, I have found no credible Andrew Eliot anywhere in New Hampshire, Maine or Massachusetts thereafter either.
My current working theory is that he died around 1796 and Polly is the female age 26 – 44 with John Amazeen (wife: Mehitable), her father, on the 1800 census with two small boys (age < 10) from her marriage to Andrew. Following this theory, She is also on the 1810 census age 26-44. I figure her age to be about 29 in 1800 and 39 in 1810. By the way, even thought the “records” show her name as “Polly”, I actually think that is a misreading for Patty, which is a nickname for Martha. One of the problems with my theory is that on the 1810 census there is another small (age < 10) boy (where did he come from?) and the previous two boys have vanished.
