3. JACOB ELDER (- 1818)
Jacob Elder was a member of Dumplin Baptist Church,
which he joined by experience on 11 November 1809.
He is thought to have been the Jacob Elder who died about 1818 in Lincoln County, Kentucky.
Note at bottom of page:
"It is interesting that Jacob Elder settled in Lincoln County, Kentucky.
Robert Elder, son of Matthew (see p. 106) went to Lincoln County in 1796 and remained there until his death in 1839."
More about Jacob:
"His will, not dated,
was probated in Lincoln County on 8 February 1818
(Will book G, p. 33).Jacob requested that his real and personal estate be sold at twenty months' credit and the amount of the sale be equally divided among his wife Hannah and his four children, Stephen, Elijah, Hannah, and John Elder, with each to receive a one-fifth part.Jacob's father-in-law, Daniel Morehead was named executor.Witnesses were John Davis, Moses Foly, and Reuben Menefee."
Children of Jacob:
3.1. Stephen Elder (perhaps son of Jacob and Nancy) [b KY]
3.2Elijah Elder (son of Jacob and Nancy)
b. 20 July 1811 in East Tennesse,
d. aft. 1880.According to the National Historical Society's History of Randolph and Macon Counties, Missouri (1884), page 1119, Elijah Elder, a farmer and stock raiser, "came to Missouri and settled in Macon County (in 1842) on the same farm he now occupies...Mr. Elder has 220 acres of extraordinary land in Ten Mile township, and is a model farmer." He was a member of the Christian Church.
3.3 Hannah Elder (probably daughter of Jacob and Hannah)
mar. Isaac Herrin on 29 March 1836, Lincoln Co KY

6. ANDREW ELDER (-d. ca 1821)
Andrew Elder of Sevier County, Tennessee, perhaps born about 1790, was a pioneer settler in Alabama, which became a state in 1819.
After the Cherokee and Chickasaw cession, 1806-1807, the Mississippi Territorial Legislature created Madison county,
which was the first county surveyed in North Alabama.In 1809 the Federal Government began selling the land;
as much as 160 acres could be purchased for a minimum of $2 per acre. Andrew Elder bought 160 acres,
although the time and amount of his purchase is not known.However, he was evidently living in Madison County in May 1813
when his father's will was proven there.Recorded in Madison County in December 1818 is a deed from Allen Morris
to Henry Newman for $1,800 for 160 acres "originally purchased from the United States by Andrew Elder" (Deed Book E, p. 182)
By 1820 Andrew Elder and his family were living in Lawrence County, Alabama.
Lawrence County was created in 1818 by the Territorial Legislature from lands ceded
by the Cherokee and Chickasaw Indians in 1816.
According to the 1820 census of Lawrence County, the Andrew Elder household included:
Males:3 under 21 and 1 over 21
Females:1 over 21 and 1 slave
Andrew Elder died about 1821 in Lawrence County
(Jones and Gandrud, Alabama Records, vol. 22, Lawrence County, p. 10)
Elizabeth Elder was administratrix of Andrew's estate on 15 December 1821,
Lawrence County, and was probably his wife.
Recorded in Jefferson County, Tennessee, is the marriage on 10 November 1809 of
JacobElder and Elizabeth Winterbowers (see p. 80).
Since Andrew's wife was probably Elizabeth, it may have been Andrew who married Elizabeth Winterbowers and a mistake was made when the marriage was recorded.
In 1830 the Elizabeth Elder household in Lawrence County included:
Males:1 10-15, 1 15-20, and 1 20-30
Females:15-10and 1 30-40 and 1 slave 19-24
The names of the children of Andrew and Elizabeth are not known.
In the 1840 Lawrence County census only one of the Elder name is listed:
William S. Elder, age 20-30, probably a son of Andrew and Elizabeth.
With Williams S. was a female, age 15-20, perhaps his wife or his sister.
According to the 1850 census there were no Elders in Lawrence County;
they had evidently moved away.
RE: DUMPLIN BAPTIST CHURCH (from page 96)
...Probably the first of the Elder name to join Dumplin Church was Jacob, who was received by experience in November 1809.....
Page 123: Jacob ELLER may be confused with Jacob ELDER (see page 80).
For that reason these notes on Jacob Eller of Jefferson County, Tennessee, and his family are included....he .probably died before 1830....
