Thanks! I did see that Nova Scotia query.
Using Google.com, I searched for "Elder family" and "Nova Scotia"
"The History of Kings County, Nova Scotia, Heart of the Acadian
By Arthur Wentworth Hamilton Eaton
Page 655 (and others) "Family Sketches"
"The ELDER family, a family unusually gifted, was founded in Hants
County by Matthew Elder, who came as a young man from County Donegal,
Ireland, to Windsor..."
