I have been going through all of the Trollinger/Drollinger Postings till
way in the morning. I seem to think
you know quit alot on this family.
I descended from the ELLIOTTS and I
live in Oklahoma. I have My family
background to 1616-1698 When Wendel
(as I have his name)Drollinger came
from the Tyrol in Austria. He was my
GGGGGGGGG-Grandfather, and his Great
Grandson, Adam Trollinger was my ...
GGGGGG-Grandfather. Adams Father was
Hans Michael Drollinger and his wife,
Eva (Klemmer) Drollinger, whom are my
GGGGGGG-Grandparents. Can you tell me
the correct way that Wendell Drollinger
spelled his name? Also am I correct on
Hans Michael?
The information that I have was from
"The Darsts of Virginia, A Chronicle
Of Ten Generations in the Old Dominion,
with Sketches of the Cecil, Charlton,
Glendy, Grigsby, Larew, Miller, Welch,
Trollinger, Wygal, Wysor Families. By,
H.Jackson Darst,University Library,
Chrstianburg, Virginia.

What is your comments on this information?
I have complete History down to My Grand
father, Doc McHenry Elliott and my Grand-
mother Annie Jane Elliott, whom lived in
Marietta, Ok,Love County. Martin Elliott
Sr had married, Mary (Polly) Trollinger
(Heavener) (Elliott).They were my GGG-
Grandparents. Theyre son Martin Elliott
Jr. married Elizabeth Myra Long (Elliott)
and they were my GG-Grandparents. They
had a son, Rabourn Elliott (called Rabe)
and he married Elvoria (Elvira) Brown
(Elliott) and they were my Great Grand-
parents. Most had come from Montgomery
Co Virginia to N Carolina, Texas and
Oklahoma. Most of my Elliotts are still
in Oklahoma and alot buried in the Lake
view Cemetary there,and Burbeyville
Cemetary. Rabourn had ran the Dexter
Texas Ferryboat in about 1850 until
he was killed by horsethiefs in 1875.
My grandfather and grandmother also
ran the Ferryboat,from the time my
grandfather Doc Elliott was 13 yrs
old. They were a right up also of
them. They called him The Riverboat
Man and her The Boat Woman.He even
took Bonnie and Clyde Parker over
into Texas and theyre car, but was
by them forcing him to do so. He use
to lay on the porch when I was a kid
and tell me the stories over and over.
I just wanted to share this and too
get your opinion. I was real new at
this a couple of months ago and upon
my short search ran into all of the
History I now have. It was on these
message boards that got me started.
If you know anything I dont sure
would be nice to here from you.
Thanks for your time. You can contact
me at Jackie
