About Cyrus Arledge

Ames gives location of Cyrus' birth as Charleston SC. Why and how could that be? There's no evidence that the family ever lived in Charleston. Bob Arledge writes: The following is from Ames, Edwina Gray Powers and Ames, Stanley Richard, PhD, "Gray, Powers, And Their Interrelated Families: Descendants of Col. Thomas Holden Wade", p. 94, Chapter V, Rochester, NY, 1992: Cyrus and Lucy and their family, along with John and Willie (Colston) Featherston [Lucy's parents], and Lucy's brother, Howell Featherston, came to Limestone Co. AL by 1820. They lived near Athens, AL on the Elk River.

Lucy and Cyrus lived in SC before moving to Alabama.

Cyrus's will was dated 20 Jan. 1848 and was presented to the Court 27 July, 1852. On 21 Aug. 1852, Joseph and William Arledge, as executors, acknowledged their bond with John F. Arledge, Josiah R. Hancock, and William S. Wimberly as sureties. Later that year four of their children, William, Joseph Cyrus, John Fisher, and Lucinda, accompanied by their families, moved to TX. One source states that they were homesteaders and another that they purchased the land. Lucy could have journeyed with them for she died 14 Oct. 1866 in Houston Co., east of Crockett, TX. See Notes for Lucy to see the Agreement signed by his heirs on 1 July 1853 in Limestone County AL Deed Book, Vol. 9, 1852-1857, p. 143. See Lucy's notes for other document summaries.
