Carolyn Shearer, of Franklin County Pennsylvania writes about
our ELDER research in Pennsylvania- -as possible connection in ARGYLL.              Orville ELDER's Argyll page 14
Hi Nancy,
 >Was doing some data entry on the Sharps of Cumberland Co, PA.
All the old bios agree that Thomas Sharp 'born Ireland' married Margaret Elder.
 I was doing some searching on the LDS site, to see what anyone said about their marriage date.
Could not find it, but did get a hit on the baptisms of the first 5 children.
 They were all baptized in Campbelltown, Argyll, Scotland. ...
The Campbelltown baptisms read like a census of early Cumberland and Franklin Co's:
Elders, Stewarts, Witherspoon, Alexanders, Armour, Barr etc.

Reay (Scottish Gaelic: Ratha) is a village which has grown around Sandside Bay, Caithness,
in the Highland area of Scotland. The Parish of Reay includes the village.
    The village is on the A836 road some 12 miles west of the town of Thurso and 3 miles west of Dounreay.
    Along with Thurso the village grew dramatically in the mid-20th century with the development
of the experimental nuclear power facility at Dounreay,
where technologies such as fast breeder reactors were developed.

(Part 9:)  Alec ELDER's bike shop (about 1945, during WWII):
....
One warm summer's day I decided to hire a bike and proceeded to
Elder's shop. Within the owner was hunched over a bike, re-spoking a
wheel. As I entered he looked up sharply.
 "Whit dae ye want wee boy?" he asked, spitting a stream of tobacco
juice on the floor.
  "Can I hire a bike for an hour."
   Elders eyes gleamed. "Whurs yer shullin?" he asked, "av got tae be
carefu fur rascals can slip awa wie a bike an no pey me"....
