Is my husband a descendent of Sarah Vogan?

+4 votes
My husband is named David Verbree and one of his great-grandmothers is Orel Florence Brown (b. 1883-06-22, d. 1978-07-15 in Kosciusko Co., IN). She was the daughter of Reuben A Brown (b. 1855, d. 1936) and Sarah A Crouch (b. 1854-11, d. 1926-05-20) of Kosciusko Co., IN. Sarah Crouch's parents were Eli Crouch (b. 1825-04-01, d. 1867-11-29) and Elizabeth Elder (b. 1825-02-25, d. 1899-02-14). I have that Elizabeth Elder was born in Hopewell, Huntingdon, PA and buried in Washington Union Twp. Cemetary, Pierceton, Kosciusko Co., IN. People are listing on that this Elizabeth Elder is the daughter of John Elder (b. 1787-04-17, d. 1847-03-23) and Mary Elizabeth Keith (b. 1793-05-28, d. 1869-10-08). I think that they was born in Huntingdon, PA and buried in Kosciusko Co., IN, but I am not sure because the census records I looked at are unclear. Also, I believe has listed that John Elder is the son of William Elder (b. 1764-02-8, d. 1844-02-08) in Huntingdon, PA who in turn is the son of George Elder (Revolutionary War veteran) and Sarah Vogan. Do I have this right?

Thank you, Cheryl Verbree

Hi my name is Lisa Hay Justice and you are correct! I am Orel Florence Browns Great granddaughter. I have a leather bond book with all of the family tree.  David would be my cousin and I have not seen any of his family since I was quite young, besides Aunt Dot and Uncle Willis. (Dot and my grandma, Marion, were sisters) I know this post is old but if you need any info you can reach me at my email address.
Oh, that's so cool! What is your email address?

I found this record marriage record for William Elder. Hopefully, this will help you confirm things:

Name: William Elder
Gender: Male
Birth Place: St
Spouse Name: Elizabeth Mcmanus
Birth Place:
of NJ
Marriage State: of PA

Most of the family trees on Ancestry mirror what you have. However, they are not well sourced. Find A Grave is showing two children for John: William K & Christina. That doesn't mean he did not have more children, only that the contributor hasn't posted them.
