My name is  Nancy Elder-Petersen  and I started this site.

E-mail:  NancyP@Teleport.com

I am a volunteer Host of the ELDER Surname DNA project at FamilyTreeDNA of Houston, Texas.

See:
http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Elder

and

Elder One-Name Study in UK, posted by Nancy Elder Petersen
http://www.one-name.org/profiles/elder.html


 We hope to find our ELDER family origins in Scotland.

We welcome any male worldwide with the surname ELDER to participate in our  Y-Chromosome DNA project, ordering the "mouth swab" kit and lab report by FamilyTreeDNA.
If you are a female researcher with a close male relative still
carrying the surname ELDER  we encourage you to request their participation.
 The goal of the ELDER Surname Project is to distinguish between  ELDER ancestral lines, worldwide, and connect lines that have reached brick walls  on their paper trail, especially to connect to their Scotland origins.


SUMMARY:

ELDER DNA kits are now divided into at least
6 separate groups by their DNA matches,
plus others that don't match any ELDER group.
My brother's Y-DNA kit is #10042 in "FRANKLIN CO PA" group.

1. FRANKLIN CO PA group: 26 matching entries
   Includes known descendants
     of "ROBERT ELDER d. 1807 FRANKLIN CO PA."
   Also includes 5 descendants of
     "GEORGE ELDER, d. 1800 Bedford Co PA,"
   and one known descendant of
      "DAVID ELDER and MARGERY STEWART" - FRANKLIN CO PA.
   (Those 3 Rev. War Soldiers could be brothers.)
Others matching:
    JAMES ELDER SR. of Clarion Co PA
    JOHN ELDER, Mercer Co PA
    JOHN ELDER, Beaver Co PA
    JAMES AND JOHN ELDER of RANDOLPH CO NC
    ANDREW R. ELDER- March 15,1795 -July 1854 in Alexander County, NC
    JOHN ELDER, res. Iredell Co NC 1800
    SAMUEL ELDER, Sevier Co TN

History of the Parishes
Ramoan Parish (Rath-Modhain, Modan's Fort).

The parish was founded by St. Patrick in about 450 A.D.
The following is a resume of parish history based upon
Hugh Boyd's 'A History of the Church of Ireland in Ramoan Parish.'
(R. Carswell & Son Ltd, Belfast, 1930).
The parish has two churches.

Holy Trinity, Ballycastle.
Holy Trinity

The church is situated in the main square (or 'Diamond') of
Ballycastle enclosed in a churchyard.
Like the rest of the square the church is grade 'A' listed.
The church was completed in 1756, being built by Colonel Hugh Boyd,
who bore the total cost. It was built in Graeco-Italian style with an
apse-shaped chancel and an octagonal spire about 100 feet high. It
was effectively a chapel for the Boyd family and estate for many
years, the remains of many Boyd descendants are in the vaults below,
although it was always subject to Episcopal jurisdiction. It was
given to the Church of Ireland about 1950. This church is open every
day from 9am-5pm.

St. James, Ramoan.
St James's

This church is about a mile outside of town at the intersection of
Ramoan Road and Church Road and lies a short distance from the
original site founded by St. Patrick about 450 A.D where a church was
established under St. Ereclacius. A series of churches were built on
this site but eventually the current parish church was built in 1849
about 150 yards from the ancient site and the name changed to St.
James. It is built in Early English style with Gothic windows. A
notable Rector was Rev. J. S. B. Monsell (1811-75) who authored the
hymns 'Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness' and 'Fight the
Good Fight', amongst others.

Culfeightrin Parish.
Culfeightrin

This small parish is grouped with Ramoan and was also founded by St.
Patrick. The current parish church is found just before the village
of Ballyvoy and dates from 1831. Within this parish lies the
promontory Fair Head (636 feet) upon which can be seen Scottish
mountains and, of course, the Mull of Kintyre, just across the sea.
Also within the parish boundary is the centre of reconciliation known
as 'Corrymeela'.

RE: Nancy's photo:

JOSIAH ELDER, with 1st wife EMILY TROMBLEY ELDER and her children, abt 1886. Josiah ELDER obit

Dundee Monroe Co Michigan - Plat Map 1876 (see bottom left corner of map)
Emily is the daughter of Moses TROMBLEY and Edesse DROUILLARD,
married 26 JAN 1847 St Antoine's Church, Monroe Co, Michigan.
Emily was born 14 DEC 1847, Monroe Co, MI (Petersburg?)
Photo owned by Nancy Elder Harris, Petersburg, Monroe County, MI
Scanned by Nancy Elder Petersen, Vancouver, Clark County, WA, October 2001. Identification:
My notes say that Emily died in 1889.
Her 5th child was Edward, b. 1886.
So if this photo is 1886, that would be Mother Emily!
The boy on the right sure looks like
our grandfather Martin, b. 1877, so he would be age 9.
Then Ellen, b. 1884, age 2
Alfred, b. 1872, age 14.
Mary Ada, b. 1869, age 17.
