Show Details Note: p.278"Hon. P. P. Elder, vice-president of the Ottawa Publishing Company
and a pioneer of 1857 in Franklin County, was born in Somerset
County, Me., September 30, 1823, a son of Isaac and Mary (Quint)
Elder. The Elder family is of Scotch-Irish lineage. In an early day
some of that name crossed the ocean from the north of Ireland. From
1717 they were identified with the history of Cumberland County, Me.
There the paternal grandfather was born and reared, and from there he
accompanied a company of soldiers to engage in the service of his
country during the Revolutionary war. As a private in General Stark's
army he endured all the hardships and perils incident to that
memorable struggle. In the battle of Bennington he was wounded in one
eye, but with that exception escaped unharmed.
