JOHN ELDER and NANCY ROSE, by Ed McClelland:
http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~mcclell2/homepage/elder.htm

"John Elder Born in 1755 in northern Ireland. Died in 1836. Married ca.1776 to Nancy Rose (b.ca.1755, d.3/7/1846).
He came to Scott Twp, Lawrence Co, PA in 1805 from Bedford Co. He and his wife and fifteen children
were the first settlers in the place later known as the Jacob McCracken farm, later owned by heirs of William Bender.
They are buried on this farm in Elder cemetery.

The original Elder deed is recorded at the Mercer Co. Court House as follows:
Deed Book 79 C1, Mercer County, Isaac and Sydney Gregg and Oliver and Sarah Ormsby
(from William Hopkins) to John Elder--"Malia," Aug. 1, 1808, $650. Reg. May 19, 1809.
The will of John Elder (Will Book A1, 670 OS) was registered at the Mercer County Court House June 18, 1836.

Their 15 children were:
Mary (mar. Jacob Williams)
Jane (mar. ? Rose)
Elizabeth (mar. Jacob Friend)
Martha (1779-1862, mar. James Munnell)
Arthur (mar. Nancy Bennett)
William* (d.1828, mar. Dorcas Wilkin)
John Jr. (d.1861, mar. Sarah Swann)
Nancy (1790-1875) (above)
James
Sarah (1796-1882, mar. John Wilkin)
Margaret (1797-1855, m. Thomas Hunter)
Rachel (1800-1856, m. John Daniel McConnell)
Rosannah (1801-1871, mar. Joseph McCaslin)

Biography of Lawrence Co PA:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/pa/lawrence/1897/elderj.htm

"John Elder, our subject's grandfather, came to the United States in 1802,
and settled in Slippery Rock, now Scott township, this county, and bought a farm,
now owned by the McCracken estate, where he lived until his death at the age of eighty-five.
His wife, who was Nancy Rose of Bedford Co., Pa., also possessed a very strong constitution,
and lived to enjoy ninety-five summers. Fifteen children—ten daughters and five sons—
were born to them, and all of them grew up to maturity.
