About Caleb Aldridge, Jr.

From Pam Wilson's Arledge Family History Project: Mostly notes of Don Aldridge of Oakboro, NC <daldridge@ctc.net>:

In 1820 census next to his father Caleb Sr. However, the record is curious because it only shows one male under 10 and no male head of household, even though the name listed is Calep. Females are two under 10, one 10-16, and one 26-45.(see below)

1825--newspaper article (attached) lists Caleb Jr's Anson County property as up for sale by sheriff due to unpaid taxes.

Don Aldridge writes: MOVED TO STEWART COUNTY, TENN IN EARLY 1800'S. SOLD HIS LAND THERE AND WAS BACK BESIDE HIS FATHER IN THE 1820 ANSON COUNTY, NC FEDERAL CENSUS.

ABOUT 1830 HE MOVED TO THE ROCKY RIVER SPRINGS AREA OF WHAT WAS THEN MONTGOMERY COUNTY, NC. (STANLY COUNTY, NC AFTER 1841). PW: I could not find him in any census in 1830.

1840 census, Montgomery Co, NC West Pee Dee District Males: 1 (15-20), 1 (40-50), Females 1 (5-10) and one (40-50)

Don writes: HE IS LISTED INTHE 1842 STANLY COUNTY PROPERTY TAX ROLLS AS OWNING 150 ACRES ON ALLIGATOR BRANCH.

HE IS SHOWN ON THE DEED AS ONE OF THE FIVE MEN WHO SIGNED THE NOTE TO PURCHASE LAND FOR A HOUSE OF WORSHIP. THE CHURCH WAS NAMED REHOBETH AFTER THE REHOBETH SPRINGS LOCATED NEARBY ON THE OLD WINFIELD ROAD.

HIS FIRST WIFE, REBECCA CAGLE, DIED AND HE THEN MARRIED ELIZABETH OSBORNE BULLARD. (UNION COUNTY, NC MARRIAGE RECORDS in 1858) THERE WERE NO CHILDREN BY THE SECOND MARRIAGE.

CALEB AND REBECCA ARE ALMOST CERTAINLY BURIED IN THE REHOBETH CEMETERY, AS ARE MANY OTHER ALDRIDGES. ELIZABETH IS BURIED THERE WITH A HAND SCRIBED STONE MARKER.

ALSO SEE FRANKLIN RUDOLPH ALDRIDGE BOOK PAGE 189-190. THE CALEB MENTIONED AT THE BOTTOM OF 189 AND TOP OF 190 IS THE FATHER OF THE CALEB REFERENCED IN THE SUB HEADING," CALEB ALDRIDGE TO WHITFIELD."

THE NAME SPELLING FLIP-FLOPPED BETWEEN ALDRIDGE AND ARLEDGE MANY TIMES FOR THESE TWO INDIVIDUALS.
