W. B. Elder had 2 children, Sandra and Bobby and was last known to have lived on Whidbey Island, WA with wife Edna. He was retired Navy.
Frances (1923-2003), Kennedy1920-2000 and W.B (1924-2004). were the children of Walker Elder, born 1898, and Emma Baumgardner in Cabell County, WV. No info on Walker's Father but possibly was Pat F. Kennedy, born in County Galway, Ireland (approx. 1860).

Does no date of death mean that June Elder is still living?
