This section is specific to research on Robert Elder of Paxtang. He
was born about 1679 and resided in Paxton PA. His wife is known as
Eleanor.

Robert's son, Rev. John ELDER, was Pastor of Paxton Church.
Other Elder relatives apparently lived in Franklin County, Bedford
County, Centre County and other locations which may be researched.

Our recent DNA research results

http://www.familytrail.com/elder/DNAresults.html

show that Robert's descendants DO NOT also include:

George Elder (Sarah Vogan)
James Sr b. 1769 Clarion County PA
A group of Sevier Co TN

And probably more to come.....
