Elias Genealogy

My interest in my family's roots began the day my daughter came home from school and with great excitement explained that she had learned that the colonists might have lost the Revolutionary War, had some Revolutionary War soldiers not captured a spy who was carrying the plans for West Point to the British. When I told her that one of the three soldiers, Isaac van Wart, was her 5G grandfather, she wanted details - which I couldn't provide. I began by asking my mother and my aunt, then spent some time in our local libraries and the local historical societies.
