About Samuel Arledge

Notes from Pam Wilson's Arledge Family History Project:

1820 Fairfield CO SC census: 152 ALDRIDGE, Samuel (000100-20100)

A Samuel (this one?) named as Moses' son in court case. 1820-1828: involved in a Fairfield court case, an extended legal case of John Woodward vs Moses Arledge (Fairfield County), in which Moses is described as an aged man, 55 years old: "the said Moses is now advanced in life and has no visible property known to your Orator of any value save the land lived on by the Sheriff aforesaid." Names Samuel as the son of Moses, and says Moses has seven children. Case: Winnsboro Bill 7, 1828: MOSES ARLEDGE, SAMUEL ARLEDGE, William Strother and John Buchanan VS. Thomas McCullough.

1830 GA, DeKalb County (between John Roberson and Hughes):

ARLEDGE, Samuel

1 male under 5

2 males 5-10

1 male 20-30 (probably a brother)

1 male 30-40 (Samuel)

3 females under 5

1 female 5-10

1 female 10-15

1 female 20-30 (wife)

1840 Humphries Dist, Harris Co, GA: Samuel ALDRIDGE (between Hornsby and Basemon):

males: 2 (under 5)-4 (5-10)-5 (10-15)-1 (15-20)-0-1(30-40)

females: 2 (under 5)-0-0-0-1 (20-30)-1 (30-40)

Slaves: one female under 10, one female 10-24

Looks like Samuel and Molly were in GA until at least 1845, based on locations of children's births. A William Arledge (wife Milly), who was probably Samuel's brother, seems to have migrated along with them. By the 1850 census this brother William was head of household in Tallapoosa Co, AL (as ALDRAGGE), while Samuel was in nearby Coosa County. William and his family were in Coosa County by 1860 and thereafter.

1850 Alabama census for Coosa County (Coosa District #594/594):

ARLEGE Samuel 53 M SC Farmer $250

               Moley   51      F       SC              (can't read or write)
               Nicholas        20      M       GA
               Joseph  17      M       GA
               Thomas  17      M       GA
               James   12      M       GA
               A. Jackson      11      M       GA
               Emily   9       F       GA
               Sarah   7       F       GA
               Jasper  5       M       GA

By 1860, it appears that Samuel and Molly have separated; he has gone to Marion County, TN, where several of his sons (James, Jack, and a son with unknown name who left a widow named Mary and three children by the 1880 Marion County census) have gone to farm and work in the coal mines. Molly has remained in Coosa Co, AL, where she is listed as head of household in 1860 and living with daughter Cynthia Roberson in 1870. Children Cynthia (Robertson), Samuel, Nicholas, Joseph, Thomas J. Emily (Hamilton), Sarah (Gray) and the widows of two other sons apparently settled in the Coosa and Chilton County area of Alabama.

In 1860 Samuel is heading a household in Marion Co, TN with son James and his wife Sarah and their children.

Here are Alabama 1860 census records for some others in the family:

   

· Arldridge, Mary Division 2 (Mt. Olive), Coosa, AL 1860: 229/229: Mary ARLDRIDGE 57 SC farmer $100/150; Thos 28 GA farmer, Sarah 18 GA, Jasper 14 GA, Martha ARLDRIDGE 19 TN b/ George Rush and Lewis Hamilton families (note: wife Mary E. Hamilton is an ARLEDGE daughter or daughter-in-law]

· Arldridge, Joseph Division 2 (Mt. Olive), Coosa, AL 1860: 48/48: Joseph ARLDRIDGE 30 SC farm laborer $100, Elizabeth 23 AL, Robert C. 1 AL b/ Samuel Wells and Jeremiah Barnett

Samuel's brother:

· Arldridge, William Division 2 (Mt. Olive), Coosa, AL 1860: 66/66: Wm ARLDRIDGE 49 Farmer SC $200 $100; Milly 44 SC; Amanda 21 SC, Martha A 19 SC, Mary 17 GA, Moses 15 AL, Wm 13 AL, Milly 11 AL, Charles 7 AL b/McCloud and Cynthia B. [maiden name ARLEDGE] Robertson 41 [widow of Albert] and family

I believe this is his son Samuel's record, but more research is needed:

Shelby Co, AL Probate Estate Files Index lists a "Arledge, Samuel 1863-1871". The Genealogical Society of Utah microfilmed the "loose papers" for the Probate Estate Files from 1818 through 1915. They shared the index so other researchers can use it. The name of the file is "Shelby County Alabama Probate Estate Files Index" 1818-1915 at the Shelby County Archives & Museum, P.O.
