Francis Elgin, Sr
Birth: unknown
Charles County
Maryland, USA
Death: 1782

Francis was the fifth of seven children of George and Elizabeth Adams Elgin, born about 1725. He was present at the formation of Loudoun County in 1757, being appointed on the second page of the Court Minute Books as assistant to Aeneas Campbell. Interesting that at that time Aeneas was married to Lydie Cartwright, Rebecca's sister.

Francis married Rebecca Cartwright in Maryland about 1754. He left the family in Maryland until he had purchased land and had a home to bring them to. His oldest son, Gustavus, testafied in his pension application of 1832 that he was born in Maryland and lived there with his maternal grandparents until the family moved to Loudoun.

They had eleven known children.

I have added Francis to this cemetery although we have not found a stone for him, because this is the land he purchased in 1761, and lived on until his death. It was then divided between his oldest three sons, Gustavus, Walter, and Francis Jr. We have found stones for children of Gustavus and Walter, and I am sure many of the first two generations, maybe three generations, of Elgins were buried here prior to the opening of Union Cemetery in Leesburg in 1851.
