Subject:[InchGen] New Elders of Inch Page Posted

Greetings and Salutations,

Just posted a bunch of files to my new rootsweb page at:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~inchelder/index.html

So far only four letters, with some pictures, and the pedigree pages.

Will be adding to this over the next few months and altering some of
the pedigree pages too.

Any and all comments are welcome. I am quite willing to change
anything that needs changing and add things that need adding.

Best Regards,
Tira Brandon-Evans

From the book - Genealogy of David Elder and Margery Stewart
Compiled by Thomas A. Elder, B.S.A., M.D.
Wooster, Ohio. 1905

The Ancestral seat of the Elders was Elderslie, County of Renfrew, near Paisley, Scotland. They had a Coat of Arms.
Some of them came directly to America, others first emigrated to northern Ireland, and thence to America. Probably the first of the name to come to America was Robert of Paxtang, who, according to Dr. W. H. Egle's genealogy, was born about 1679 in Scotland, emigrated from Louch Neagh, County Antrim, Ireland, where he had previously settled about 1730 to America, locating in Paxtang township, then Lancaster, now Dauphin County, PA., five miles north of Harrisburg.
The subject of this work, David Elder, with Robert Elder, probably his brother, came to America, 1754-1760, from Louch Island of Inch or Louch Swilly, County Donegal, Ireland. His wife Margery, ( or Margaret, all the family names following appear as Margaret ) Stewart is said to have been a nobleman's daughter, to have been highly educated, and to have been very skillful in fancy needle work.
David and Robert Elder settled in Path Valley, Cumberland, now Franklin County, PA., near Dry Run.
David Elder's children claimed to be cousins of Sir Walter Scott, but whether the relationship was through the Elders or the Stewarts we have been unable to determine. All of the descendants of David Elder have long ago left Path Valley, but many of Robert Elder's decendants stll live there. The early Elders were all Presbyterians.
