JESSE ELDER on WikiTree.com

ELDER DNA notes for Wikitree.com researchers, posted

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),

"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.
