  • Notes 
    • Karen Knecht wrote in 2010:
      "Before Jacob [Elston/Elson] and Helen's July 4, 1865 marriage, Jacob had been a witness at Helen's previous marriage to Soton Ryther. The Ryther marriage ceremony took place on March 16, 1864 at the home of Jacob's brother, George Elston & his wife, Harriet Gordon Elston.... Soon after their wedding, Soton Ryther left to fight in the Civil War and was killed in a battle. Harriet Gordon & Helen Gordon were sisters. Thus the 2 Elston brothers, George & Jacob were married to the 2 Gordon sisters, Harriet and Helen." Email from alohakarenk@hotmail.com to Wm. C. Snouffer (12 May 2010).
