From Rootsweb Chat:

..."Intriguingly a David Elder died at Raploch Farm in 1862: fishery officer at Island of Westray, Orkney; then at Helmsdale, and lately resided at Raploch, spouse of Janet Robertson or Elder.
"Davids family later emigrated to new Zealand or there abouts. My theory is that he must have been related to the "Raploch Elders", why would he be visiting them otherwise? He and his family were planning to emigrate at the time and I think he went to say farewell."
..."I've found David's birth, he was born 26/11/1794 in Linlithgow as the son of David Elder and Hannah Jamieson. I've checked their other offspring but there's no Thomas amongst them."
