Nancy's notes (Received Interlibrary loan) - No ELDER names found
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nancyelder/ed/Glimpses.htm

Interlibrary loan book from Yale University:
"Distinguished Men of the County" [of Kinross-shire] by Thomas M. Tod
 DAVID ELDER listed on page 71.
Much the same as his other sketches,
just 2 paragraphs, and a few lines about his son John in 2nd paragraph.
  1st paragraph:
"The death occurred at Glasgow, January, 1866 of David Elder, aged 82,
who was known as the pioneer of marine engineering on Clydeside.  Born at Little Seggie, Milnathort, he succeeded his father as a county wright, indeed several generations of the family had carried on that vocation there.  His grandfather was noted for his mathematical and scientific accomplishments."
