Looking for parents of James Elliott of PA

I'm stuck on James Elliott born about 1825 PA he died about 1890 in Randolph Co, MO. He married Elizabeth unknown. I believe he was born around Allgeny co, PA. He may have had a brother J. Andrew who also married an Elizabeth and also moved to Moberly, Randolph Co. MO

Strane Slovenia

John Posega came to the US from Strane Austria in 1910. He lived in Colorado where he married Mary Rus. He lived at 28 Strane. However to discover that information I had to trace the country first. When he left to come to the US, Strane was in Austria, then in 1918 it became part of Yugoslovia today it is part of Slovenia.

Nation/Nations Related

John Nation came to the US as a indentured servant. He was release from said service about 1720 in New Jersey. Where he married Bethia Robbins. They moved to Virigina, then to North Carolina.
Their Son, Christopher Nation was a representative who got into trouble against the crown. The governor pardoned most of the other folks involved but refused to pardon Christopher so he added the s to Nation. Which some of his children used and some did not.
Both Nation and Nations can trace their lines back to Henry in North Petherton Somerset England.
Does anyone have proof who the parents of Nathaniel Nations born 1788 SC was. My research points to Abraham Nations and wife Rebecca. Other researchers say Joseph and Phoebe were his parents, I have records that shows they had a son named Nathan.

Looking for Blevins beginnings

My great grandmother was Delia Leon Blevins who married William Curtis McGill. Her mother was Mattie(Martha Gene Blevins born Oct 1870 TX) Mattie married twice 1st WJ Waldrop 2nd. to Mr. Baster/Boster she lived around Sebastain Co, Ark at the time of her mother's death in 1926, this is where I have lost her. Her parents were John Ceamon/Seaman Blevins born 1850 TX and Galitha Jane Stidham. John's parents were John Blevins and Elizabeth unknown. They had three known children, John Ceamon/Seaman, John H., and Elizabeth. They lived in Milam, Commanche Co, TX. I believe they came to Texas from Carroll Co, Ark with a group of Blevins. How they were related I have yet to establish.
Some of the other Blevins names were, Richard, Armstead, Luke there is also a Leeroy Seaman Blevins in the group and this is one reason I really think these lines are related. Some of my research has reflected that some of the Blevins were run out of Arkansas as half breed theives. Some of these Blevins families also moved to Oklahoma and I remember coming across the Ned Sizemore name in that research.
