****
ELDER Families in that book are my "Y-DNA cousins" because
current descendants match my brother's Y-DNA. Most of the
early ELDER Families in that area and from "FRANKLIN CO PA" were Presbyterians.

A Newspaper obituary for Robert M. ELDER might be a good place to find more about his Church affliliations.
Some Obits are linked in the Howell County MO Genweb
at
http://howell.mogenweb.org/endings.html

and MO Newspaper searches are offered
at
http://shsofmo.org/store/research/newspaper-search-1/newspaper-search.html

Let me know if you find out!
