In Reply to: James Elder by: Steven Dillon
My great grandfather was James Elder, born in Dysart Fife Scotland, and settled in Cincinnati Ohio, Hamilton County.
He married Elizabeth Young in 1865 in Scotland.
They had 7 children.
William, James, Isabella, John, David, Elizabeth and George.
Any connection?
