Hi folks,
I'm trying a slightly smaller format for scanning ELDER newsletter,
so they might print out on 1 page more easily.
Let me know if it still reads okay.

I'm going back to Vol. 1 to choose more pages.
RE: Article about Hancock Co IL (Vol 1, #1, page 2 and 7)
The names don't seem to be in the GEORGE ELDER line of Delaware Twp.
of Hancock Co OH
where a Robert ELDER settled from Bedford Co PA.

Now I think these Wythe Township/Hamilton folks
are connected with the same line as the IOWA group, as I find names
in Darlington, Beaver Co PA, in the WorldConnect entries.
I made another "Hancock Co IL" file for that search,
then finding some of the early locations
such as Hempfield, Westmoreland Co PA as well--
always a good mixture of ELDER lines there!
