Biography

Hiram Thomas Elder was born 03 Oct 1842 in Virginia, the son of John & Martha Elder. He married Rosa Victoria Lawson, and died 13 Jun 1897.

Hiram served as a private in Company E, 11th Virginia Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. [1]

Hiram and Rosa had nine children, all born in Campbell County, Virginia:

  1. Ira Dell, b. 28 Dec 1868, m. Robert Andrew Reynolds, d. 05 Nov 1961
  2. (daughter), b. 14 Nov 1870 [2]
  3. Charles Edwin, b. 06 Jun 1872, m. Elizabeth Adams Marshall, d. 11 Jun 1944 [3]
  4. Carrie Lillian, b. 25 Dec 1873, m1. Charles Robert Henderson, m2. Stephen Clay Henderson, d. 23 Apr 1958 [4]
  5. (son), b. 14 Aug 1875 (stillborn) [5]
  6. Alberta, b. 19 Jan 1877 [6]
  7. William Andrew, b. 28 Dec 1878, m. Ala Dollie Holmes Henderson, d. 13 Feb 1938 [7] [8]
  8. John Mathew, b. 08 Aug 1881, m. Lula Foster, d. 29 Sep 1921 [9] [10]
  9. Richard Leonard, b. 20 Jan 1884, m. Elizabeth Holmes Smith, d. 17 Mar 1950 [11] [12]

The 1900 census presents a bit of a mystery, as it lists "H. T. Elder" as head of household with wife R. B. (actually R. V.), and sons W. A., J. M., and R. L.; but according to his grave, Hiram had died three years earlier in 1897.
