20th Century History of New Castle and Lawrence County Pennsylvania
and Representative Citizens (pub 1908)

JOSEPH ELDER,
[p. 668] whose fine farm of seventy-six acres lies on the Neshannock Falls road, in Wilmington Township,
one-quarter of a mile south of the village of Fay, is the head of this branch of an old pioneer family of this section.
He was born November 15, 1869, on the farm he now owns, and is a son of John and Barbara [BEST] Elder.
John Elder was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania, in 1837 [or 1815], and
died in Wilmington Township, Lawrence County, April 6, 1885.
His parents were Alexander and Polly Elder, natives of Scotland, and
settled in Pennsylvania at an early day, living in Washington County until after the birth of their son
and then moving to North Beaver Township, Lawrence County.
There he followed farming for many years.
John Elder was married (first) to Maria Hamill and they had one child.
He married (second) Eliza Reed, and they had five children. [see ROBERT REED ELDER, b. 1845]
His third marriage was to Barbara Best who was a daughter of William and Elizabeth (Holebaugh) [or Hollibaugh] Best,
who were prominent farming people of Armstrong County...."

ROBERT REED ELDER, b. 1845

ELDERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA
by EDGAR B. ELDER (Elder Member #96)

Elder Family Newsletter vol. 1 #4 -EFN-Oct-Dec. 1993, page 9.

"In Jefferson Township, Pennsylvania, located northwest of Washington, Pa., lies a
small community called Eldersville.
Expecting to find several Elder families in the area, I visited there in the Summer of 1992.
When I contacted the postmistress, she said in all the years she had lived in the community
there had never been an Elder living in the area. Conversations with other citizens had the same results.
But the way the town got its name is interesting.
The land was originally owned by Thomas and Sarah Ward, who took up a tract of 400 acres.
It was surveyed on September 15, 1784, and again on March 7, 1785, and a patent was granted
April 6, 1792, under the title of "Ward's Ward."
During September 1814, the plot of the village was surveyed and laid out by James Henry,
for Thomas Ward. The name first given to the village was "Wardsville."
The town plot consisted of 53 lots and several streets and alleys.
The first store was built in the same year with John Miller as proprietor.
About this time Thomas Elder came to the area and bought two acres of land from Ward.
He built a tavern and operated it from 1809 to 1818. Since there was no water in the village
for animals or humans, Elder agreed to have a public town well dug if the name were changed
from Wardsville to Eldersville. His suggestion was accepted and the well was dug.
Today there is a pump on the site and the well is still in use.
The village consisted of several homes, two churches, three stores, one tavern, a post office,
two blacksmith shops, and a community building called Centennial Hall--and a Village Well.
Thomas Elder evidently left the area sometime after 1818, for I found no further evidence of him.
--Edgar B. Elder
[Editor's Note: According to the "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania (1882)--
"Thomas Elder, founder of Eldersville" married Margaret Campbell, daughter of Arthur Campbell.
