  • Notes 
    • Eleanor McCall, daughter of George and Anne (Yeates) McCall, was born in Philadelphia, Pa., July 8, 1732. She married in this city, October 31, 1754, Andrew Elliot, third son of Sir Gilbert Elliot, Second Baronet, Lord Justice Clerk of Scotland, bearing the title of Lord Minto, by his wife Helen, daughter of Sir Robert Stuart, Baronet, of Allanbank, and uncle to Gilbert Elliot, First Earl of Minto. Mr. Elliot was a native of Scotland, and accompanied John Swift, before mentioned (brother of Joseph Swift and Mary Keen, and second husband of Magdalen Kollock, wife of Jasper McCall), from London to Philadelphia, where he became engaged in mercantile pursuits.

      Mrs. Elliot died in Philadelphia, and was buried in Christ Church Ground May 20,1756. Mr. Elliot afterwards married Elizabeth, daughter of William Plumsted by his first wife Rebecca Kearney, and step-daughter of Mr. Elliot's sister-in-law Mary (McCall) Plumsted. He died in Scotland in May, 1797. In a letter to his nephew Sir Gilbert Elliot to Lady Elliot, written from London, Monday, May 29, the event is spoken of in these terms: "I received tins morning your two letters of Wednesday, the last of which brought me the account of Mr. Elliot's death. I do most sincerely pity the Admiral; no man ever sustained a more serious loss, nor one that must be felt by him as more irretrievable." By his first wife Mr. Elliot had one child.
