Elden/Eldon Family from Eleuthera, Bahamas Islands
Posted by: Walter L. Elden Date: September 25, 2001 at 12:38:44
  of 18

My father, Harry Richardson Elden, was born on Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas in November of 1904.He was raised by a half sister, Aunt Eadie Lowe. At age 15 he came to Miami, Fl, settled, became a US citizen and married Bertha Alice Clark. I have 2 brothers, Harry R. Elden, JR,, Guy James Elden, Sr. and one sister Jeanette Alice Ora. I am looking for information about my fathers ancestors in the Bahamas. He had one brother, Percy Eldon, whose spelling used the letter "o" while my father used the letter "e" once coming to the USA. A distant cousin, Charles "Bud" Eldon, also traces his ancestors to Eleuthera Island and we shared similar stories told to us through the years. My uncle Percy had 2 daughters, who still live in the Bahamas, named Eunice Smith and Ivy Lowe. I will appreciate any information helpful in learning more about my family ancestry.
