Have you seen this WorldConnect
entry for JAMES ELDER of Rutherford Co TN?
http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:1573606&id=I0689
by Krista James
e-mail: KWJames@wwwt.net
ID: I0689
Name: James ELDER
Sex: M
Birth: ABT. 1765 in Brunswick Co., VA
Death: 1824 in Rutherford Co., TN
Note: Per Lee Marks Feb, 2001
JAMES ELDER, SR. was born abt 1765 in Brunswick County, VA and died 1824 in Rutherford
County, TN. On September 9, 1789 he married Mary "Polly" Mason in Rustburg, Campbell County,
VA; she was the daughter of John Mason. James (Sr.) and Mary "Polly" had several children. Joshua in
1794, James (Jr.) in 1795, Sarah (or Lucy) in 1797, Elizabeth in 1799, Lucy in 1800, David in 1803,
William N. in 1806, Francis in 1808, Nancy in 1810, Clayborn in 1810, and Susan in 1812. James and
Mary remained in Virginia for several years as most, if not all, of their children were born in Virginia.
They were in Campbell County in 1805 but were in Charlotte County in 1809. The Charlotte County, VA
Personal Property Tax lists James Elder until 1813. The family migrated to Rutherford County, TN
between 1813 and 1816 and settled on Stewart's Creek in an area which is now on the outskirts of
LaVergne, Tennessee. James, Jr., their son, married in 1816 in Rutherford Co. The Edith Rucker Whitley
Collection of family records in Rutherford County, Tennessee appears to be correct as to the names of
their children. The first census record of the family in Tennessee is the 1820 Census of Rutherford
County. The listing of children "fits" the names and ages of the family members. It appears that Mary
"Polly" died before 1820 as she was not in the 1820 census. James died in 1824 in Rutherford County.
His son, Joshua, was appointed Administrator of his father's estate. The family were farmers as were
most people of that time. James Elder was listed in the 1810 census of Charlotte County, VA. James and
Polly had 10 children at that time, four sons and 6 daughters and their ages "fit" the James Elder family
listed in the 1820 census of Rutherford County, TN.
REF: 1810 Census of Charlotte County, VA, page 1013 (James, age 26-45,
had 2 sons under 10, 2 sons 10-16, 3 dau. Under 10 and 3 dau. 10-16).
1813 Charlotte County, VA Personal Property Tax List shows James Elder.
1820 Census of Rutherford Co, TN page 100 (James, over 45, son under 10,
son 10-16, son 16-18, dau. 10-16 and 5 dau. 16-26.
Wills, Inventories and Settlements of Rutherford County, Vol. 16, page 67.
