|NICOLE [ELDER] GILL. - From request about EPHRAIM ELDER
GEDMATCH Monica Nicole Elder: 23andMe,
Doesn’t match GEDMATCH of entries in WIKITREE OF EPHRAIM ELDER by ADCOX
IN ROBERT ELDER’s FILE I FOUND A WILL for “PETER ELDER” CLAN,
with the name EPHRAIM.
William ELDER's WILL of 1754 mentions his slaves:
William Elder Will
Richmond County, Virginia, Will Book 6, pages 58-59
dated 24 Apr 1754, proved 3 Feb 1755
... "I bequeath to my son Ephraim Elder my negro boy named Robin.
"I Give my negro boy called Tommy to my son Joseph Elder.
"I bequeath my Negro boy named Rollo to my Daughter Maryann.
.... ."I devise the use of my negro woman Kate to my loving wife Ann Elder
during her natural life, And the Child with whom the said Negro Woman
at present goes with I devise when born to my Daughter Winnefred.
... "And my desire is that the said Child be kept with its mother till it
shall be two years of age, unless my said Daughter shall incline to take it sooner.
And the said Negro woman Kate I devise after my said wifes decease to my son
Charles Elder to remain on the Plantation & Land to him devised." —
