About William Arledge
Notes from Pam Wilson's Arledge Family History Project:
William was the youngest child of Isaac Sr. Though there is no proof at this point, it seems likely that the William who married Sarah Ford was the same William Arledge. However, since there are a number of other William Arledges in the area, this is not absolutely certain.
Where was this William in 1800? This William, if unmarried, could have been living in the household of one of his brothers, etc. in 1800.
However, the same year, in the neighboring county of Kershaw, a WILLIAM ALDRAGE and ELIJAH ALDRAGE are listed as heads of household in the 1800 Kershaw Co, SC census (William: 00010-00001-00 and Elijah: 00100-00100-00). William b. 1755-1774; Elijah b. 1775-1784. I suspect this is WIlliam, son of William and Mary, and his brother Elijah.
William Arledge was named with Demy Greyham as executor of his brother Joseph's estate in March 1806.

In the 1810 Fairfield Co, SC census, a William is listed. 191 ARLEDGE, William (20020-01010-06). This puts his birth range as 1765-1784, with a wife the same age range, a daughter b. 1794-1800, and two sons born 1800-1810. ***Also, it shows another man the same age living in his household.***
14 Mar 1810 Deed (which county?) from Zach Thompson of Chester to William Arledge of Fairfield for 178 acres on Hagens Branch of Rocky Creek [from Graham Louer's notes--needs further investigation]
A complaint filed in Fairfield Co, SC Equity Court: by Sarah Arledge and William Graham (in right of his wife Elisa Keziah Graham) who files a bill of partition and complaint againt Mary Mariah Arledge, Tilman Ford Arledge, William Gardner Arledge, Charlotte Jane Arledge, and Sarha Magdalena Arledge on 23 November 1821, that WILLIAM ARLDGE of said district departed this life intestate seized and possessed of vertain real estate in said bill described as containing 229 acres and one fourth acre, leaving said Sarah Arledge as widow and relict to one third part of said lands, and ...children entitled to their share of the remaining two thirds..
Is this the same William?:
SC STATE GRANTS:
William ARLRIDGE, Fairfield Dist., 974 acres, v53, p595, 4 Sept 1809
from Clay Fulcher <email@example.com>: He possible was the same William who married Mary Ann ____ and died in Richland County, S.C. in May 1831 (estate records? administered by Mary Ann Arledge). Sekanick says he was a boy in 1790. [PW: This is unlikely given the ages of Isaac and Anna's other children: he could have been a minor (under 21), if perhaps Isaac had 2 wives and Anna was the mother of the younger children].
