Hi, my name is Patrick Elder from Charlotte NC. Recently I got married to a girl from PA and my whole family made the trip. My grandmother is from St. Genevieve, MO (as is my father) which is one town away from Perryville MO. Well my grandmother decided that if she made the trip all the Way to PA she would find time to visit the Elder cemetery she has always heard about in Frederick MD. Well it turned out to be Emmitsburg and the campus of Mount St. Marys Univ. This was only 15 miles from the town I was getting married in so most of the family went to the site. My grandmother was overcome with such excitement and such good fortune as to have all her children in one place (Catholics tend to have quite a few and I can only remember 2 other occasions where all my aunts and uncles were in the same place at one time since I have been alive. Everyone was able to witness the "homecoming" so to speak and she was very glad to see how well the site is kept up.

Now that I'm back from my honeymoon I started to look into the genealogy and find my exact link to William elder. I think it is right but I've not found much online about my side after a certain point so I want to document it. If any one can confirm what I have below this would be great.

Not sure if this works out but this is As told to me, Patrick Elder 6-21-2006 By My Grandmother Stella Mae Elder of St. Genevieve, MO. Any help verifying this would be most appreciated.

William Elder I
William Elder II
Guy Elder married Eleanor Willet? (MD)
James Elder Married Mary Anne Richards (Migrated to KY?) 1791?
Guy Thomas Possible Twin George A. Elder?
Joseph Elder (KY)
Joseph Arsted Elder (MO)
Francis Orlando Elder (MO)
Thomas Joseph Elder (Perryville, MO)
Thomas G. Elder (St. Genevieve, MO)
Joel P. Elder (Charlotte, NC)
Patrick N. Elder (Charlotte, NC)

Hi Patrick,
Thanks for adding information to our ELDER files here!
It's great to hear about current reunions and interest in ELDER

I don't have much more about the "WILLIAM ELDER of Maryland" line, except the entries in the ELDER DNA project,
which are found to be different than my "Franklin Co PA" group.

Donna Logan had posted several webpages for WILLIAM ELDER of
Maryland on her "Family Histories" section.

and more....have you seen references to the "WILLIAM ELDER" book by
Sister Mary Louise Donnelly? I believe it is available in
some genealogy libraries.

Donna lists her sources at the bottom of the WILLIAM ELDER webpage:
....[Sources: our member's files;
various Maryland records as cited above, all of which are at the Maryland Hall of Records in Annapolis;
and at the Montgomery County Historical Society Library; and
Book: "William Elder, Ancestors and Descendants,"
by Sister Mary Louise Donnelly, pub. by Donnelly in 1986]

It's great that WILLIAM ELDER DNA matches the DNA Host of the
CLARY DNA project,
JASON CLARY, except we haven't figured out why!

I found more CLARY info here,
starting with a FREDERICK CO MD entry,
goes back to VA and Ireland -
so that probably goes back to Scotland directly.

Hi Cousins

I have just joined the list and wanted to introduce myself
I am Tim Gallagher and I reside in New Market, Frederick County, Maryland. This is the same county that the Elders helped to settle in the early 1700ís.

If I have this right this is how I am related to the Elders

John Elder 1650 and Janet Reill/Keil?
William Elder I (1681) and Elizabeth Finch
William Elder II (1707) and Ann Wheeler
Charles Elder and Julia Ward /Guy Elder and Eleanor Ogle
Walter Elder and Priscilla Elder (first cousins)
John Elder and Mary Ann Myers/Moyer?
Hugh Gallaher and Mary Emily Elder
William Wilfred Gallagher and Mary A. Smith
Elmer Francis Gallagher and Bertha Mae Schroyer
Lloyd Francis Gallagher and Virginia Josephine Mary Ott
Timothy Paul Gallagher

Cousin Patrick congrats on your recent marriage.

Others can correct me who have been doing this longer

Guy Elder was married twice

1st was Eleanor Wickham (Married 1755) who died in child birth on 01 Jan 1757 She and Guy had one son William (01 Jan 1757)
Married 1755

2nd was Eleanor Ogle (Married 1761)
She and Guy had 13 children and your James would have been their eldest son. I have him married on 13 Feb 1792 ( Nelson, KY) to Mary Ann Polly Richards.

I hope this is right and hope it helps.
