The only reference I find  to the Elder surname is a Will Elder. He
is mentioned in an article describing the establishment of the local
newspaper titled "The Chief".
> The  paragraph reads:
         "Subscription rates were lowered to $1.50 a year, but advance
payment was required. An additional ten cents postage had to be
paid on all papers sent to the post office for out of county
delivery. In spite of those reverses, circulation increased by more
than 100. Several changes took place as a result. The office was
enlarged and thanks given to Newt Beason, Sam Walker,  Will Elder, W.
A. Jones, W. A. Chappelear, Bart Smith, J. S. Walker, W. H. Phillips,
and others for help in moving the press and the other heavy
equipment."

"Aaron Work ELDER" bio
  His f: JOHN REED ELDER, b 1823 Spruce Creek, Huntingdon Co PA
         lived in Indiana Co PA
      f: Robert ELDER, b. 1790, Half Moon Twp, Centre Co PA
          d. 1859, buried E. Mahoning Twp, Indiana Co PA.
      f: David ELDER, b 1752...  (not mentioned in the article)
      f: Robert ELDER, b.  abt 1730 - d. 1807 Franklin Co PA

The article says about his ancestor:
(Aaron's?).. G-grandfather [or gg-grandfather?] ELDER was born in Ireland about 1725,
and emigrated to America in 1750.  Although he claimed the
United States  as his home after settling in Pennsylvania,
he made several visits to his native land.
He had been a sailor and was able to work as such on the
 vessels across the ocean, and thus did not entirely break away
from his native place.  His first settlement was in the Path Valley,
 in Franklin Co PA, and he later moved to Center county and still
later to Spruce Creek, in Huntingdon county. "  -
    [but that last movement would be DAVID, not ROBERT of 1807.]
