Answering a query recently,
from my files in the ELDER DNA project:

  RE: ISLES of SCOTLAND ORIGINS - possible location for ELDER of "PAXTANG PA"
 Found "MacDONALD" and "PAXTANG PA" matching
in Haplogroup "I2b1" (Isles, Scots, Viking) in I-M223 SNP STUDY.
at
https://www.familytreedna.com/public/M223-Y-Clan?iframe=yresults

Ancestry of Roderick MacDONALD, (I2b1= Isles/Scot/Viking I-M223),
b. 1770 on ISLE OF CANNA  (Inner Hebrides) County of Inverness-shire.
    Google Map shows ISLE OF CANNA with ferry crossing to
MALLAIG on MAINLAND (2 1/2 hours) and then distance to MALLAIG from Glasgow (10 hours, 208 miles)

MALLAIG (Inverness-shire) is an important ferry port and there are
regular Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services to Armadale on the Isle of Skye, a thirty minute sailing.
   The West Highland Line links Mallaig railway station by rail to
Fort William, Oban and Glasgow

A different ELDER DNA line with Haplogroup "R-M269"
is nearby on the Isle of Skye:

JESSE ELDER on WikiTree.com

ELDER DNA notes for Wikitree.com researchers, posted
at
https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Elder-209

Tracing Wayne Arthur ELDER to JESSE ELDER
Jesse T Elder, 1788–1859
Birth 1788 North Carolina, USA
Death 16 SEP 1859 Pulaski, Kentucky, USA

However, descendants' Y-DNA of this JESSE have not matched
 "PETER ELDER OF VIRGINIA" (Scottish) Y-DNA categories
which many expected.
   JESSE's ancestry entries of Y-DNA kits
   #17290, #13301, #457006, #N201884,
   matching DNA under a different Haplogroup:
   "E1b1b1" (may be German),
   found on ELDER Y-DNA RESULTS CHART
at
https://www.familytreedna.com/public/Elder?iframe=yresults

"PETER ELDER of VA" descendants' DNA found in Haplogroup "R1b1"
So JESSE cannot be related to "PETER ELDER" by paternal (male) lines.  Researchers are looking for JESSE's actual father.
