A post of interest to John Oliver Wait & Elizabeth Crow descendants: The Herriott connection

Those descendants of John Oliver Wait (1787-1876) and his wife Elizabeth Crow (1792-1854) may find this post of interest. Ray Harriot of the Herriott Heritage Association contacted me recently to tell me about the link that they have established with the Crow family thanks to a tip that came from Scotland, and that is that Elizabeth Crow’s great grandfather Samuel Crow was married to Eleanor Herriot, a daughter of Elizabeth Lockhart and David Harriot.

4-Elizabeth Crow b. 11 Sep 1792, Woodbridge, Middlesex Co., NJ, d. 9 May 1854, Perth Amboy, Middlesex Co., NJ, bur.

Quite a while ago, I did a blog post that included the will of David Wait, John’s father. Ray pointed out to me that his ancestor James Harriot (once the mayor of Perth Amboy) was listed as one of the inventory takers for the will. Pretty fascinating!  For more information on the Herriott family (note: a number of various spellings of the surname exist), click this link to the Herriott Heritage Association website. They publish a newsletter twice yearly, and you can subscribe to it via their site.

With their permission, I am posting the below pages from one of their recent newsletters that included mention of the discovery of the Crow-Herriott connection.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
