William Elder from County Cork, Ireland - Father of John Riley Elder
Posted by: Chantelle Elder (ID *****8796) Date: June 11, 2011 at 17:19:09
  of 2779

I just started researching the Elder line and have not found much on William Elder from County Cork, Ireland (born 1730, died 1799 in Maine or England?) who was John Riley Elder's father. William is my 6th gg by way of John Riley Elder, Joseph Elder, William Elder, James Elder, Lonnie Harrison Elder, Have Roscoe Elder and finally my father, John Daniel Elder.

Does anyone have any information on this line? I only know that William had another son named Joseph who was born in 1757 in Maine but I have not proven that yet. I don't know who William's wife was or if there were more children. Many thanks for your help.
