Scharf, the town of Eldersburg, three and a half miles from
Sykesville and thirty-two from Baltimore, was named in honor of John
Elder, who laid it out before 1800, and who was an early settler,
owning large tracts of land in the vicinity."
...Protestant Episcopal Church, originated on March 8, 1771,
when John Welch entered into a bond...to convey to...
Brown.. Twis, Edward Dorsey, and John Elder... two acres of land
...The church was built (a stone structure), and became a part of
St. Thomas’ Parish, Baltimore County. "
