The 1910 Census listed George Elder and his wife, Mae, as residents of Roeder in Whatcom County, Washington, where George was a self employed farmer. The couple had an eleven month old daughter, Dorothy. Also residing with George and Mae was Amy Elder, George's 37 year old, unmarried sister.

When George Elder signed his W. W. I. Draft Registration Card on September 12, 1918, he and Mae were living in Lynden, Washington. George was employed as a foreman over road machinery for Whatcom County.

By 1920, George and Mae were living in Lynden on a farm they owned "free and clear. The couple had three children, Dorothy, Margaret, and George. When the 1930 Census was taken, George and Mae were still living in Lynden with four of their children, Dorothy, George, James, and William. George earned his living as the Whatcom County Commissioner.

George stated on his W. W. II. Draft Registration card that he and May resided at Everson in Whatcom County and at that time he was a farmer.
