My name is Stan Elder and we have a Lloyd Elder in our line. The line is descended from West Virginia and John Riley Elder. Our Lloyd is the son of Amos Marion Elder who was the brother of my Grandfather, Ross Elder. We have no information on any of the other descendants of Amos so we are unaware of a Ruth but maybe you could add to our info. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you think we might be related.
