George Elder


“The man in the oval picture is George Elder… after John Lafayette Riker died, his other brother, Charles Bodle Riker, took in John’s daughter, Anna E. Riker. (Anna is my great grandmother.) It was her grandparents who were George and Hannah Elder, of Stamford, Connecticut. They also played a part in looking after Anna. When she married Samuel Crump, it was the Elders who issued the invitation to the wedding, which was in Stamford…not to be confused with Stanford. Stamford is very close to NYC.”
