Tell me some names and dates and I'll search my files.
I don't remember any Madison or Hardeman Co TN at the moment,
but they could be somewhere in my notes!
I do have lots of other TN names.

Rutherford Co TN has PETER ELDER descendants on the DNA chart.
Kit #39

Sevier Co TN has matching "Robert ELDER of
Franklin Co PA" on the DNA chart.
Kit #11 and 26

Kit #34 is researching Joseph ELDER of Washington Co VA/
Sullivan Co TN

DNA chart:

Littleberry ELDER, b. ca. 1788 in Virginia
m. Penelope WATERS, 3 Dec 1812, Madison County, Georgia
living in Harris County, Georgia in 1830 Census and 1840 Census.
Lose him in the 1850 Census but he is in Muscogee County, Georgia in 1860 with wife Bannora (_____), a 60 year old b. Georgia (I presume to be a second wife as she would only be 12 years old in 1812).
Possible Children:
(1) - Mitchell ELDER m. Amy WILEY 3 Aug. 1834, Harris County, GA;
(2) - William ELDER m. Cynthia SMITH 20 Apr. 1840, Harris County, GA. William is counted in the 1840 Census in Harris County;

(4) John ELDER living next door to Littleberry in Muscogee County, 1860 Census with wife Jane (______) and dau. Margaret, age 1. It's possible that the family was in Mississippi in 1850 as Margaret is recorded as being born in Mississippi.

1860 Census with wife Carmella (age 24) & dau. Julia (age 2). Also in

In my files, from MAINE-to GEORGIA-to MISSISSIPPI,
Ruth Elder Bellknap of Mississipi writes:

"Samuel Tyng Elder and brother Robert first came from Ireland to ...
MAINE abt 1730...
GG Grandfather Samuel Tyng Elder, II, b. Portland, Maine 4/18/1784, moved to Georgia.
His son, Mr. William G. Elder, b. Georgia,
(also a descendant of Lyman Hall of Georgia,
who signed the Declaration of Independence)
came to Jackson County Mississippi (Moss Point) in 1831.
He said that he built his home on the
"most beautiful sight he had ever seen, the white beach..."
near the Gulf of Mexico.
He built a one room school at what is now 5806 Elder Ferry Road.
Acquiring large land holdings, including Petit Bois Island,
(a barrier island now part of the Gulf Islands National Park)
he saw the need for a means to cross the river and founded the Elder Ferry over the Escatawpa River. The Ferry was the shortest route along the coastal road from Biloxi Mississippi to Mobile, Alabama.
In the Escatawpa River near the Elders'Ferry there is a bayou called Elder's Turn....

His daughter Etta Gould Elder had a private school there after the one room school was discontinued.
Her daughter, Aldruda Elder Hines taught at Grand Bay, AL School (nearby) until retirement. Her granddaughter Barbara Elder Donovan, after studying 5 yrs at Ole Miss, and at Univ. of Tennessee for her doctorate, became the youngest depart. head at the Univ. of TN. Barbara's husband, Dr. Thomas Donovan completed his doctorate at the Johns Hopkins Univ. at Baltimore, MD....

Ruth's brother is William Hollis Elder of Pascagoula, Mississippi....
Other ELDER's still living in Moss Point, Mississippi.
