Absolom ALDRIDGE: one male 70-80, one female 20-30 and one 50-60. What happened to Absolom's 4 sons? There is an Isaac Aldridge in Houston Co, GA (where we know Absolom was living in 1832 during land lottery) who might be his son: 2001 // 2001. In Monroe Co we find a Thomas Aldridge age 40-50 with a female 20-30 and a Thomas B. Aldridge with the same demographics (but the neighbors are different, so it's not clear if it's a duplication or not).

Hitz, Alex M. Authentic List of All Land Lottery Grants Made to Veterans of the Revolutionary War by the State of Georgia. State Printing Office. Atlanta. 1966. lists:

Auldridge, Absolem; resident of Houston; 1832 lottery; Fortunate draw 223 (Land lot) 12 (District) 2 (Section); granted in Cherokee, 7/ 1/1843.

Aldrege, William Wilkes 1832 247 5 4 Cherokee 12/ 1/183??

[Note: this William ALDRIDGE is in 1830 Wilkes Co GA census age 70-80 with wife 50-60]

Belated recognition of the services of all Revolutionary veterans was made by the Act of June 9 1825,

establishing the Fifth Land Lottery of 1827. Every veteran with three years residence in Georgia was allowed three draws if unmarried or four draws if married, regardless of where he had enlisted or in what regiment he had fought. The two additional draws, less any fortunate draw in the Third Land Lottery, were available to every veteran who could take the following prescribed oath before the registering officials, namely:

         "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I served as a soldier in the armies of the United States during the Revolutionary War a tour or tours of duty, and am entitled to a draw or draws according to the provisions of this Act; so help me God".
         Exactly the same preference was given to all Revolutionary veterans by the Act of December 21 1830, setting up the Sixth (Cherokee) Land Lottery of 1832. Service in the United States armies was the criterion - the State of enlistment and place of service was not material. However, a veteran was denied any additional draws if he had drawn two Land Lots (as a veteran) in the Land Lotteries of 1820 and 1827, and he was allowed only one additional draw if he had previously drawn one Land Lot. At the time of entering his name he was required to take the following oath, namely:
         "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I served as a soldier in the armies of the United States during the  Revolutionary War a tour or tours of duty, and that I did not any time during the said war bear arms or act as a spy or emissary against the United States, or in any manner aid or abet the enemy thereof, and am entitled to a draw or draws according to the provisions of this Act, so help me God".
         Inasmush as every person claiming Revolutionary service was required to swear to his claim before fit and proper persons appointed for that purpose by the Inferior Court of the county of his residence, and inasmuch as those neighbors would know the truth or falsity of every claim, there can be but little doubt that every man styled or identified as "Rev. Sol." or "Rev. S." or R. Sol." or "R. S." on the Land Lottery lists and records  was actually a veteran and former soldier of the United States army in the War of the American Revolution.
         The following list includes all of those veterans (2069 in number) who were "fortunate drawers" in the Third (1820), Fifth (1827) and Sixth (1832) Land Lotteries. The spelling of first and last names has  been carefully checked against three original official sources. Whenever a name did not appear exactly the same in all three places, those spellings which were in agreement have been accepted as the veteran's correct name. The name of a county following a veteran's name shows his residence as of the date of the indicated Land Lottery.

Under the words "Fortunate Draw" the first column indicates the Land Lot number and the second column indicates the District number and the occasional number found in the third column indicates the Section.

Samuel P. Auldridge, Morgan Co, GA age 20-30 with wife and young dau

Nathan Aulderidge, Morgan Co, GA age 50-60 with 3 sons in 20s, 2 daus and wife
