About Alexander Rodman Arledge

Obituary for Alexander Rodman Arledge in the Vancouver Washington Evening Columbian dated Monday, June 4, 1927: (from Jerry Smalley)

CIVIL WAR VET TAKEN BY DEATH

Alexander Arledge, 96, veteran of the Indian wars and civil war, died saturday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Florence Gremmer(Bremmer) near Pioneer. He was born April 13, 1831 in Illinois and 21 years ago came to Washington to make his home with his daughter.

During the Indian Wars in South Dakota and Minnesota Mr. Arledge served under General Sibley. At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 he joined the 6th Minnesota Infantry and served through the war being discharged in 1865. After his discharge from the Army, Mr Arledge began farming in Minnesota,

Funeral Services will be held at the grave in the local Military Cemetery Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The services will be in charge of Ellsworth Post No. 2 Grand Army of the Republic. The body will be at the mortuary parlors of Hamiltin and Son until time for the services.

Surviving relatives include five daughters, Mrs. Huldah Turner, Canada, Mrs Eliza Brown and Mrs. Ada Goodrich, Tennsleet (Tensleep), Wy., Mrs Cora Nicholson, Grass Creek, Wy., Mrs. Florence Gremmer (Bremmer), near Pioneer, a son, Walter Arledge, Wendling, Ore., 32 grandchildren, 49 great-grandchildren, and three great-great grand children, and a sister, Mrs. Adeline Doak, Kenniwick, Wash.

The following is a letter dated August, 1983, from Enlow Ose to Bessie L. Prill, both of whom are also descendants of Lemuel Harvey Arledge, Alexander's father.

"Alexander Arledge was born April 13, 1836/1837 near the town now called Henderson (formerly called Hendersonville) in Knox County, Illinois. His parents were Lemuel Harvey Arledge and Jane Rodman Arledge. His family moved to Mercer or Knox County, Illinois from Graves County Kentucky in 1833/1834. They subsequently moved to Fayette County, Illinois in 1839 where they appear in the 1840 census records under the name of "Aldrige". They left Fayette County, Illinois in 1846, apparently returning to Knox County, Illinois where they appear in the 1850 census records. In 1851, they returned to Fayette County, Illinois for one year, after which they returned to Knox County before moving on to Hardin and Franklin Counties in Iowa in 1853."

Alexander "Arledge" married Julia A. Peters in Hardin County, Iowa on July 8, 1855. Alexander and Julia Ann appear in the 1856 census records for Reeve Township in Franklin County:

28 758 58 69 Lemuel H. Arledge 48 M 1 3 Kentucky Physician 1

 29  758           Lydia             Arledge               24 F       1        11 Vermont
 30  758           E. A.             Arledge               14 F                 3 Illinois
 31  758           Sarah P.          Arledge                1 F                 1 Iowa
 32  758       70  Alexander         Arledge               20 M       1         3 Illinois
 33  758           Juli Ann          Arledge               20 F       1         5 New York 

In 1856, Alexander Arledge and his father moved to Blue Earth County, Minnesota.

Alexander Arledge and his father patented land in Blue Earth County, Minnesota in 1856 & 1857, and are mentioned on pages 86 and 298 of "History of Blue Earth County, Minnesota". Alexander sold his land there in 1859 but apparently remained in the area. The 1860 census for Shelby Township, Blue Earth County, Minnesota shows:

         Alexander Arlage              25        Farmer         Pa.
         Julia Arlage             24 Pa.
         Hulda Arlage              4 Pa.
         Frances Arlage            2 Pa. [online census gives this as Marcus]

Alexander Arledge volunteered for service in the Union Army February 20, 1864. At that time he was a farmer in Garden City, Minnesota. He joined the 6th Regiment of the Minnesota Volunteers, serving until 19 August, 1865.

After the civil War, Alexander returned to farming in Ackley, Hardin County, Iowa. They show up there in the 1870 Hardin County census records as follows:

         Alexander Arledge        34        Farmer         Ill.
         Julia A. Arledge         35 NY.
         Huldah J. Arledge        13 Mn.
         Emma S. Arledge          6 Iowa

(Pension records indicate that a son, Marquis, was born in 1861 but no subsequent record of him has been found. No record of Frances Arledge has been found except for the 1860 census record. However, the 1860 Minnesota census index lists Marcus Arlage with Alexander, Julia, and Hulda Arlage so I could have read the 1860 census records incorrectly. If so, Frances and Marquis could be one and the same person.)

In 1871, Alexander Arledge and family moves to Ft. Collins, Larimer County, Colorado. They appear in the 1880 census records as follows:

         Alexander Arledge        57        Ill
         Julia Arledge       45        NY
         Emma L. Arledge          15        Iowa
         Florence M. Arledge  8        Colorado
         Walter A. Arledge         6        Colorado
         Cora C. Arledge           4        Colorado

In 1883, Alexander Arledge and family moved to Rushville, Sheridan County, Nebraska. In 1891, they moved to Red Bank, Johnson County, Wyoming. In 1894, they moved to Big Horn, Sheridan County, Wyoming. In 1899, they lived in Council, Adams County, Idaho. They appear in the 1900 census for Big Horn County, Wyoming, along with Walter A. Arledge and Pearl I. Arledge, his wife.

In 1910 Alex R. Arledge was listed in Washington Co, Idaho:

In 1915, they lived in Asotin, Asotin County, Washington. In 1921 they were living with their daughter, Cora Nicholson, in Greybull, Big Horn County, Wyoming. Julia Arledge died June 19, 1921 in Masterson, Wyoming after which Alexander moved to Ridgefield, Washington to live with his daughter Florence. Alexander Arledge died in Ridgefield, Clark County, Washington on June 4, 1927.

The obituary for Alexander Arledge states that he is survived by five daughters and one son as follows: Mrs. Hulda (Mrs. H. J.) Turner of Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada: Mrs. Eliza (Mrs. F. P.) Brown and Mrs. Ada (Mrs. J. E.) Goodrich of Ten Sleep, Wyoming: Mrs. Cora (Mrs. R. C. Nicholson of Grass Creek, Wyoming: Mrs. Florence (Mrs. F.M.)

He was also survived by a sister, Mrs. Adeline Doak of Kennewick, Washington.

Notes on Alex's Civil War pension papers.

      Like most Civil War Vets, Alex applied for a pension in his old age. I can tell by his answers to the questions that he resented the bureaucratic red tape and having to answer all those prying, personal questions.  In a letter from Bess Prill, another Alexander Arledge descendant, she says she remembers Alex when she was a little girl and that he was not known for having a sense of humor. The answers to these questions seem to prove that observation wrong. Read away and        see what you think !
      From a pension application dated January 15, 1998
      Q. Were you previously married ? If so, please state the name of your former wife and the date and place of your divorce.
      A. One is a dose if a man stays by it .
      From a pension application dated April 7, 1915
      Q. Were you previously married ? If so, state the name of your former wife, the date and place of er death or divorce. If there was more than one previous marriage, let your answer include all former wives.
      A. No. No, I am not a Mormon.
      Q. If your present wife was married before her marriage to you, state the name of her former       husband, the date of such marriage, and the date and place of his death or divorce, and state whether he rendered any military or naval service, and, if so, give name of the organization in which he served. If she was married more than once before her marriage to you, let your answer include all former husbands.
      A. No, I don't go to a second hand house to get a good article.
      Q. Are you now living with your wife, or has there been a separation  ?
      A. Live together and intend to fight it out.
      Humor or frustration ? Maybe a little of both !

Please remember that my info on this family is 15 years old so I will defer to Jerry Smalley on most details for this family. However I will add a few details that might be interesting.

Alexander "Arlege" married Julia A. Peters July 8, 1855 in Hardin Co. Iowa and appear there in the 1856 Iowa census.

He and his father patented land in Blue Earth Co. MN in 1856 and 1857 which they apparently sold in 1859. Nevertheless Alexander [25], Julia [24], Hulda [4], and Frances "Arlage" appear in 1860 Blue Earth Co. census records [Lemuel Arledge appears in the 1860 Hardin Co. Iowa census, Pleasant Twp]. For some reason or another the 1860 Minnesota census index lists Marquis Arlage with Alexander, Julia and Hulda Arlage [are Frances and Marquis one and the same?].

After the Civil War, Alexander Arledge returned to Hardin Co. Iowa. The 1870 Hardin Co. census [p. 414, Etna Twp, Eldora] includes

Alexander Arledge 34 1835 Illinois Farmer $900/100

Julia A Arledge 35 1834 New York

Huldah J Arledge 13 1856 Minnesota

Eliza A Arledge 8 1861 Minnesota

Emma L Arledge 6 1863 Iowa

In 1871 the family moved to Larimer Co. Colorado [6 Pct p 37] where they appear in the 1880 census: Alexander, Julia, Cora C, Eliza, Emma L, Florence M.

In 1883 they moved to Sheridan Co. Nebraska.

[PW: 1890 census: Fall River Co, SD p. 6 as Alexander R. Arledge]

In 1891 they moved to Johnson Co. Wyoming. In 1894 they moved to the Big Horn Basin in Wyoming. In 1899 they were in Adams Co. Idaho. The 1900 census shows them in Big Horn Co. Wyoming along with Walter A. and Pearl I. Arledge. In 1915 they were in Asotin Co. Washington. In 1921 they were living in Big Horn Co. Wyoming.
