Researching the Elders that came from Maryland and Pennsylvania to settle in Perry Co., OH.

Two distinct lines of Elders from Maryland and Pennsylvania are found in Perry Co., OH; one Catholic and one Protestant. Many of these Elders also had connections in Fairfield and Seneca Counties.

Special Thank you's are due to Sue Nason, Jim Brown, Donna Logan (and her Elder Family Newsletters; 1993-1996), Helen Costigan, Nancy Elder Peterson, Ann Denson, and Michael Miller for all of their help.

1. William Elder (1707-1775): Married first Ann WHEELER then Jacoba LIVERS. Catholic.

Of his many children's lines, at least two came to Perry County: William, who married Sabina WICKHAM and Charles, who married Julia WARD.

2. The three brothers who came to Perry County from Maryland in 1818, according to the 1883 History of Fairfield and Perry Counties.
They are Protestants. The brothers are John (wife Mary), Robert (wife Susannah HAINES) and William D. (wife Ann). The parents of these Elders are unknown.

Note: There is an additional family; that of Jesse Elder and Isabelle PUGH that has a Perry County Connection but information about this family is scarce. It appears that they are Protestant. More research may reveal a connection to the three brothers, above.
