DAR (all Wrong - because Joseph is son of a different Robert ELDER (b. 1730 Perthshire, Scotland - d. 1807 Franklin Co PA)
"In our ELDER DNA project we have discovered that
"Robert ELDER d. 1746 of PAXTANG PA"
has descendants analyzed as Haplogroup "I-M223 = Isles, Scots, Viking, and divisions,"
which does not match Y-DNA from our "FRANKLIN CO PA" group,
now analyzed in "R1b1 and divisions, such as R-M269."
"So the 2 ELDER families cannot be related by the direct male (paternal) ELDER lines.
See the separated DNA categories in the ELDER YDNA RESULTS chart.

"I have at hand a copy of the Bible record of the Reverend John Elder in which is given the date of birth of his son Robert as Friday June 11, 1742. This Robert lived in Swartara Twp, a later division of Lower Paxton, Dauphin Co. He was married by his father on Feb 7, 1769 to Mary J. Thompson. He served in both the Provincial and Revolutionary period with his father and was the Colonel in command of the Dauphin County troops in the War for Independence. He died Sept 19, 1818 and was buried beside his wife who had predeceased him some five years, in the church yard adjoining the Paxtang church of which he was long a ruling elder. He apparently had no children nor grand-children as his estate which was large was bequeathed to nieces and nephews. He always lived in this locality and in 1813 signed off a release to his brothers for his share of his fathers estate as settled in full. ....there is no record of any children and ample proof he died childless."
