|Today I posted queries for ROBERT H. ELDER
(1828 PA -1892 Dallas Co Iowa)
on ELDER Genforum and Rootsweb Boards,
and INDIANA CO PA Genforum and Rootsweb Boards:
at Indiana Co PA Rootsweb:
Robert H. ELDER, b. 1828 PA - d. 1892 Dallas Co Iowa
As host of the ELDER Surname DNA project,
I am researching ROBERT H. ELDER,
b. abt 1828 in Indiana Co PA,
according to his Civil War Pension Records from Iowa.
"Robert H. ELDER - Civil War -
Co B 39th Reg IA- enl. 15 Aug 1862
Discharge: 5 June 1865 Washington DC (age 33)
b. 1828 Indiana County PA
Died: Sept 13, 1892
buried Violet Hill Cem, Perry, Dallas Co IA"
Is he a descendant of "Robert ELDER, of E. MAHONING TWP"?
b. 1790, Half Moon Twp, Centre Co PA
d. 1859, buried E. Mahoning Twp, Indiana Co PA.
His f: David ELDER, b 1752 FRANKLIN CO PA, d. Centre Co PA
His f: Robert ELDER,
b.abt 1730 Scotland - d. 1807 Franklin Co PA (Rev. War)
I hope to connect this Civil War Soldier,
ROBERT H. ELDER (1828 PA - 1892 IA)
to my brother's "FRANKLIN CO PENNSYLVANIA" DNA group.
Our Rev. War Soldier is ROBERT ELDER (1730-1807),
buried in Franklin Co PA.
