There is some conflict on the surname of Eleanor (Elliot/Ellit/Elliott or Long) but all sources seem to agree on the children.,,,
Rick Harrison shares his view on Elinor:
"Our records acknowledge that Eleanor's name may have been Elliot, but our researcher said it was customary for guardians of orphans to be chosen from among relatives -- usually aunts, uncles if there were no older brothers or
sisters. Our researcher theorized that Eleanor may have been a Battaile or a sister to Elizabeth Battaile's mother, who was Elizabeth Smith, daughter of Major Lawrence Smith of early Virginia. Both John Battaile, and Lawrence Smith were some of the most influential men of Virginia."
