Name: Joshua ELDER
Sex: M
Birth: 1795 in ,,Virginia
Death: 1885 in , Rutherford, Tennessee
LDS: Endowment: BEF. 1970
Sealing Child: BEF. 1970
Baptism: 5 SEP 1911 Manti
Note:
Birth; Joshua was born in VA according to 1850 census which shows Joshua's family.
Bob Elder (bobedler@earthlink.net) is a direct descendant of Joshua and Lydia J. Etter.
He has information on this couple and has shared with me. The earilier census records indicate that
Joshua may have been one more older child not shown on the 1850 census. Bobb shows it to be
Lucy who m White in 1848. All children except Lucy are shown on the 1850 census. Initials, second
given names and marriages not in Rutherford County were provided to me by Bob Elder.
Bob Elder has proof in Probate Records of John Etter's estate that John Etter is the father of Lydia--he lived next door in the 1850 census

POSSIBLE LINKS TO SIBLINGS: Joshua Elder was the administrator of the estate of a James Elder who died in 1824.
Joshua Elder was also named as guardian of the two minor children of Claiborn Elder who died in Obion County in 1844
(Rutherford County TN Minute Books DD,0379628, pp.231,237(5jan1859& 5 Feb 1860)
These two girls, Susan Jane and Mary Elizabeth, ages 8 and 9, were living with
Nancy Teer and Susan Elder in Rutherford County, Tn, in 1850 census.

Family: in 1885, 11 children or their descendants were listed as heairs of Lydia and Joshua
when they began selling land held in trust for them since 1869; one child apparently died before
1869 leaving no offspring. Joshua lived, married and died in Rutherford County--it is assumed that
all children were born there. Lucy Eldedr White Trigg and Mary were living with their father in the 1880 census.

Father: James ELDER b: ABT. 1770 in Brunswick, Virginia
Mother: Mary Or Polly MASON b: ABT. 1770 in Virginia

Marriage 1 Lydia J. ETTER
* Married: 29 JAN 1824 in , Rutherford, Tenn
