I added the Spartanburg SC ELDER to the Paxtang group chart
at the ELDER DNA webpage.
That chart now shows that 9 of 12 numbers for this
"William ELDER, b. 1867" match
the 3 PAXTANG ELDER entries.
FamilyTreeDNA doesn't list
PAXTANG ELDER entries as "matching"
on the "DNA personal match" page, as they like
to see 10/12, but I think these ELDER names
are probably connected further back in Scotland.
Could even be in BANFF SCOTLAND! Hope we
can find that connection...

66 of 67 markers match STEWART. 60/67 match FERGUSON.

"Mike Elder and I found each other researching Elders on the internet; in particular, Mary Elder who was the mother of my grandmother. We keep running into brick walls with the father of Mary's children. At Nazareth Church there is one monument which reads "M.E. and E.J. 1889". An Elder graveyard was moved from what is now I-85 and records seem to have vanished. The year is probable and the E.J. easily could have been transposed from J.E. My Grandmother's papers say her father's name was "Jack". I keep returning to this possibility.
"Mike's great-grandfather and my grandmother were "bound" to Edgar Archer and Julia Archer Switzer, reportedly distant relatives of the Elder family. I find no record of guardianship bonds and have not researched bastardy bonds, but census records confirm that they were "bound".

William Hoyt Elder lived with Edgar L. Archer.....I saw somewhere that he was "bound" to Edgar. Edgar was in the SC Legislature, had no children of his own. Remember, Elizabeth lived with Julia Archer Switzer, Edgar's sister. Elizabeth was "bound" to the Switzers.
