George ELDER

HISTORY: George had two sons who died as P.O.W's of the British during the Revolutionary War. Both died of malnutrition. Seven of his sons came to Kentucky through the Cumberland Gap in 1795. One died on the way, and was buried on the side of the road. One son, Thomas, stayed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. This info came from family records and Bible of John C. Elder. Now in possession of Valanie Elder Clayton of Salem, Livingston, Kentucky. -1978- He may have also fought and died during the Revolutionary War.

Did they live in York County, Pennsylvania before coming to South Carolina??


Elizabeth MAYES

Her surname was received from a man in Ohio. I have misplaced the letter and can not recall his name. I have not been able to verify this information. So it is still uncertain if this is the real name of George Elder's wife, but from other things I have found I believe it probably is.


Robert ELDER

MILITARY RECORDS: He served in the Revolutionary War and fought at Kings Mountain. He wrote a letter which was printed in the book "King's Mountain and It's Heroes: History of the Battle of King's Mountain October 7th, 1780, and the Events Which Led To It" by Lyman C. Draper. The letter is has follows: "Robert Elder, April 2, 1823 certifies: That I was a volunteer of the regiment commanded by Colonel William Campbell, in the action, fought upon King's Mountain, on the seventh day of October, in the year 1780, and do hereby declare, that I never saw Colonel Campbell on the field of battle after the first onset of the action, until the surrender of the enemy. I also declare, that I often saw Colonel Isaac Shelby endeavoring to animate our men, and particularly at the time of the battle when the enemy charged our lines, and drove us down the mountain, from one hundred and fifty to two hundred yards, or upwards. I both saw and heard Colonel Shelby make great exertions to rally our men, which he finally effected, and turned them back upon the enemy, and drove them in their turn until they surrendered." Robert served in his brother Captain James Elder's company under Colonel Roebuck. He and his wife applied for a pension #8405, 25 March 1833 in Lincoln (He shows up in Livingston County) County, Kentucky. According to his pension record he was born in York County, Pennsylvania.

Captain John ELDER

FAMILY RECORDS: Family records of Robert M. Wheeler of Marion, Kentucky.

NEWSPAPERS: The Crittenden Press Newspaper, September 28, 1893, The Old Settlers when they came, where they settled: John Elder from North Carolina in 1790 and settled 2 miles south of Marion.

MILITARY RECORDS: John was a Revolutionary War soldier in South Carolina. (The Henry Family, by Eron Sharp of Memphis, Tenn. 1975, Page 7.) He also served in the Revolutionary War with his brothers in Benjamin Roebuck's Regiment of the South Carolina Militia.


Captain James ELDER

Samuel ELDER Sr.

Samuel served as a private in the Revolutionary War in Benjamin Roebuck's Regiment of the South Carolina Militia.


Cynthia Anne MACKELVAIN

She died after 1797, but before 1800. The way Samuel's Will reads it sounds like she left him and was living somewhere else. I need to found the Will, and look at it again.


Thomas ELDER

Thomas served in Revolutionary War in Benjamin Roebuck's Regiment of the South Carolina Militia. He served as a horseman in his brother Captain James Elder's company. Is he one of the sons that died of malnutrition during the War???
