Hi Leon,
Thanks for the query and contact!
As Host of the ELDER DNA project, I'm always watching for more ELDER connections.

Today I found the 1920 OK census (with date and location problems), and searching the GEORGE HAUN name in Ancestry Family Trees, I found some ELDER clues.
Lots of ELDER names in early Indiana.
I have research notes for an ELDER group coming from Bedford PA to OH to IN.
