Matildey Elder, 22, OH [born c. 1828]
Who is Matildey Elder? Might she be the Matilda who married Henry L. Swinehart in Perry County 1852? It appears every other Elder in Somerset is Catholic, so she may be also.

John Martin, 18, Cabinet Maker, IRE
Charles Elder and Elizabeth Lynch and family. Charles Sr. is actually enumerated as the last member of the household at dwelling 86, but I assume is an error. At least two of the children were Baptized at St. Joseph.

Is this John and Mary Snider, married in Perry County 1833? It appears that at least Samuel and Mary are buried at Holy Trinity.

Elder, Nathaniel, 78, MD

This is, apparently where Elder Marries Elder. Caroline is thought to be daughter of Nathaniel and Johanna Livers...but who is the head Joseph son of??

This marriage is not in the Perry County Marriage Index.

Ann N., 70, GER
Michael, 1?6, GER

From the way these are written, it is unclear whether children Lewis, George, William, Gertrude and Peter are Elders or Dittoes. I'll guess Elder.

If this is true then Elizabeth is probably widowed...who was her husband?

I'll also assume these are Catholics as Protestant Dittoes are rare.

Susan Nolen, 57, MD

The child list makes this look like Thomas and Ellen McLaughlin...so is Ellen aka Mary? Is Susan Nolen a relative? At least two of the children are buried at Holy Trinity.

Lead: Emily Elder married Samuel Nolin in Frederick Co., MD 18 Jan 1830.
