    From Gordon Lockwood ( Mar 6 2003
    "I am sure that John is the son of George Elder and Sarah Vogan."

    Morrow County History:
    "John Elder, from Pennsylvania, was the first settler in the west, part of the township, and entered the land where his son, Samuel Elder, now lives, when it was an untouched forest. Not a tree amiss, as the latter gentlemen informed us, except now and then, where "one had been cut down for honey or a coon."
    Mr. Elder settled first in Troy Township, in 1829, and, in the fall of 1830, removed to this section, where he died in 1837. Samuel, who lives on the old homestead, remembers hauling corn from the old place in Troy Township, the first winter they lived here. It was a winter of unusual severity, and, with oxen hitched to a large sled, they would go back and forth through the snow, taking two days to make a round trip, and carrying their provisions with them, as the country was not as thickly settled as it is now."
