It seems very strange to me that I can not find the names of any of the children of that Isham and Malinda Aldridge in Bienville in 1850 I am almost certain that he is the right one as he was born in ARk

but I have looked in all the surrounding states for Geo W Aldridge/Arledge and every other spelling to no avail I have also searched all the marriage records around for the name Perlany or Linsey, I thought they would show up being a little out of the ordinary but nothing at all on any of them As to William , he never showed on any census at all I wonder why Have you any ideas ? My brain has gone blank I am o the Bienville List but no one has heard of them or Eliza Anderson Where did they come from ?

Is it possible to keep missing the census ?

Take care



Joy Moore found this piece of information--could this "C. ALDRIDGE" be related to this family?

A "C. ALDRIDGE" was married to a Sarah L. CONWAY, daughter of Sylvannus G. CONWAY, planter, of Hollywood, Arkansas. The elder Conway was born in Morgan Co, AL, July 1835 son of James H.
