I am hoping that you are still checking in with this site.

It looks as though there could possibly be a relation to your Elder Family with mine.

My family, from what we can gather was also from the Rasharkin area of Antrim.

John Elder aged 80 yrs died on the 1st April 1898 at Craigs informant was Ann Smyth daughter.

Margret Elder aged 71 yrs died on the 29th May 1904 at Craigs, labourers widow, informant was Henry Smith son in law.

If you have any other information with regards to these Elder's or any other Elder's from this area, I would appreciate hearing from you, as we have hit a block when it comes to this side of the family.

Hoping to hear from you.
