JIM SEXTON's webpage mentions "PETER ELDER of VIRGINIA".

...."Our Elder family is first found in Spartanburg County,
South Carolina with Samuel Elder who died in
1797. Among other Elders in Spartanburg County,
we're unsure of Samuel's relationship to them, but
believe his line may descend from Peter Elder and Amandine Hammond
of North Farnham Parrish, Virginia." [from Lee Elder's book]
"Our Elders left Spartanburg County in the early 1840's and
by the 1850's resided in Gilmer County, Georgia.
By 1910, after several seasons of crop failure they're off again,
this time to Marshall County, Alabama."
