In Reply to: Scott M Elder Church Affiliation by Patricia Kepple Elder of 2779

Findagrave for Scott M. ELDER - maybe PRESBYTERIAN from PA?
"Scott M. Elder was born July 15, 1866 in Pennsylvania.
He was the oldest child of Robert Henry Elder and Mary Jane Patterson Elder.

Searching ANCESTRY TREES for ROBERT ELDER, b. 1835 PA m. Mary Jane Pattterson
found father: by craigswartz59
Thomas Elder
Birth 1790 in Pennsylvania, United States
Death 20 Oct 1865 in Clarion, Clarion, Pennsylvania, United States

James Knox Elder
Birth 17 Mar 1769 in Callensburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Death 15 Feb 1837 in Perryville, Clarion, Pennsylvania, United States

Found in the Book:
"Descendants of James ELDER Sr. of Armstrong and Clarion Counties Pennsylvania"
by Sharon Robinson Huffman, 1995 revised 2000.

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

and MO Newspaper searches are offered

Let me know if you find out!
