I have a government letter responding to a request for information on John Elder from a Charles Nesbit Fleming. Some of the facts do not match your posting, but there are several "coincidences" that might interest you. According to this letter, John Elder was born in Chester County PA in 1762 and married Mary (sometimes called Polly or Nelly) Dougherty in 1793, in Whitedeer Twp, Northumberland Cty, PA John was the son of Thomas Elder, and his son James Elder and other children were awarded a pension for his service in the Revolutionary War. No son named Samuel listed in this letter.
