It was popular with the Dutch in the 19th Century.
Actually, it just referred to an older man - especially an uncle,
so not necessarily an "old" man.

I need a one-syllable word which begins with a vowel and which means human being, spirit or a group: man, relative, tribe, soul etc.

I have come up with aunt and young but they're too "kind" because in the text they've been sacrificed.
