   Skipped chapters to download,
   trying to guess where our "FRANKLIN CO PA" Elder family might be mentioned.
   Looking at 1850's, because we know that "Robert b. 1799"[son of Joseph ELDER Sr] was in Westmoreland County for 1830 and 1840 census, then in Wilkins Twp in 1850, and wife Eliza was a widow in 1860.

RE: SAMUEL ELDER - who ran a boarding house and stage-coach stop
     in several towns. Born in "Franklin Co PA" abt 1805.
     Samuel is brother of Nancy's gg-grandfather John ELDER.
        [John was born in Franklin Co PA,
        then moved to Wood Co Ohio about 1824]
     Samuel moved back to Ligonier, and is buried there.
