==William Thomas Elder== William Thomas Elder was born 12 Jul 1868 in Columbia, Adair County, [[Kentucky]] to [[#Granville Elder|Granville Elder]] and his wife Sarah J Unknown. He served during the Spanish-American War. He married firstly to a fellow Kentucky-native, Mary L "Mollie" Murrell in Adair County, Kentucky on 23 Sep 1903. They had two known children: Garvin Elder (1904-1968) and Earl Elder (1905-). (Earl was in the US Coast Guard in Baltimore, [[Maryland]] in 1945). Mary died between the 1910 census, when they are all enumerated in Menard County, [[Illinois]] and the 1920 census, when the family is enumerated in Nevada County, [[Arkansas]]. If they had any more children, they must have died young as they are not on the 1920 census with William. He married his second wife [[#Eva Lorene Whitney|Eva Lorene Whitney]] (1904-1989) about 1925 ("when she was 21", see 1930 census), probably in Arkansas, and probably in Nevada County, where both families then lived, or possibly next-door in Hempstead County. The family lived in Hope, Arkansas by 1925 when their daughter [[#May E Elder|May]] was born there. William and May had at least or exactly seven children: (in birth order) May, Neal (who died in a swimming accident), Louise (who married Jack Casey), Elsie who married Alvin Wilson Huckabee (the son of Sidney Carl "Tobe" Huckabee and Parie Betts), Vena (who married Roger Pletcher), Emilie (who married Leon Prescott, and William Thomas Jr.(who married Gloria) William Thomas Elder died 8 Mar 1945 in Springhill Township, Hempstead County, Arkansas. He is buried in Huckabee Cemetery in Springhill. His widow Eva remarried to a Mr. Garner which is the surname under which she died. ===Primary documents for 6=== *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&rank=0&f5=&f7=Elder&sx=&rg_81004011__date=&rs_81004011__date=0&f23=&f25=&rg_81018011__date=&rs_81018011__date=0&f39=&rg_f45__date=&rs_f45__date=0&f46=&gskw=&prox=1&db=kymarriages1852&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&pcat=34&fh=60&recid=62602&recoff=4&fsk=CIAABF0AAPR-47-&bsk=&pgoff= Kentucky Marriage Records, 1852-1914] : "W T Elder, 34 to Mollie L Murrell, 17, Adair County, Kentucky 23 Sep 1903" *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1910USCenIndex&indiv=try&h=5734666 1910 Census of Indian Creek, Menard County, Illinois] : "William Elder, 40, KY/KY/Unknown; Mary 23, KY/KY/KY; Garvin, 5, son, KY; Earle, 4, son, KY" *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1920usfedcen&indiv=try&h=65389927 1920 Census of Missouri Township, Nevada County, Arkansas] : "William T Elders [sic], 51, KY/KY/KY; Garvin Elders, 15, KY; Earl Elders, 14, KY" *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&rank=0&gsfn=&gsln=Elder&sx=&f12=Arkansas&f4=Hempstead&f7=&f15=&rg_81004011__date=&rs_81004011__date=0&f18=&f14__n=&_8000C002=&_80008002=&_80018002=&f10=&f16=&gskw=&prox=1&db=1930usfedcen&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&pcat=35&fh=0&recid=3729791&recoff=3+21+22 1930 Census DeRoane, Hempstead County, Arkansas] showing William L Elder, 62, married first at 34, KY/Northern Ireland/Northern Ireland, Operator, Filling Station; Eva L 26, married first at 21, IL/OK/OK; May 4 AR; Neal 2 AR; Louise 8/12 AR *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&db=ARdeathindex%2c&rank=0&gsfn=William&gsln=Elder&sx=&gs1co=2%2cUSA&gs1pl=6%2cArkansas&year=&yearend=&sbo=0&sbor=&ufr=0&wp=4%3b_80000002%3b_80000003&srchb=r&prox=1&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&o_iid=21416&o_lid=21416&pcat=34&fh=1&recid=583847&recoff=1+3 Arkansas Death Index, 1914-50] showing : "William Tho Elder, died 1945 Hempstead County, age 75" *The obituary of William Elder mentions his brother J R Elder of Springfield, IL, and sister Mrs J R Rood of Wadsworth, Ohio *[[MaeElder1|Obituary of Eva Elder]] ===Secondary sources for 6=== *[http://trees.ancestry.com/owt/person.aspx?pid=174736796&st=1 "William Thomas Elder"] on OneWorldTree
