As Volunteer Host of the ELDER DNA project, I'd be happy to share my files of ELDER family groups.
From a summary I have posted on the DNA webpage at
ELDER DNA kits are now divided into at least
6 separate groups by their DNA matches,
plus others that don't match any ELDER group.
1. FRANKLIN CO PA group:
Includes known descendants
of Rev. War Soldier "ROBERT ELDER b. 1739 Perthshire Scotland - d. 1807 FRANKLIN CO PA."
Also includes descendants of
Rev. War Soldier "GEORGE ELDER, d. 1800 Bedford Co PA,"
and one known descendant of
Rev. War Soldier "DAVID ELDER married MARGERY STEWART" - FRANKLIN CO PA.
(Those 3 Rev. War Soldiers could be brothers.)
