|Today I used the webpage of
National Archives (NARA ONLINE ORDERING)
JOHN ELDER's Rev. War Pension Record, which he
applied for in Beaver Co PA.
Using the info we have in the summary:
"Rev. War Soldier, Moved in 1802 -N. Beaver Twp, Beaver Co PA.
Pension Record #S23616," Applied 5 Jun 1833 Beaver Co, PA.
Born 1755 in Cumberland Co, PA and lived there at enlistment.
Hope we will find more clues about his family in the records.
His descendants match DNA of FRANKLIN CO PA group.
