Correspondence from Jimmy Eldridge Hager (2008):

The 1860 Census for Cherokee County, Murphy Township, North Carolina, shows James, William and Sophronia Aldridg living with John Griffth Chastain, his wife and two children. John's father was Abner Chastain, a Baptist preacher and farmer who lived in Fort Hembree near Murphy at the same time.


The last entry for the family of Abner Chastain family in the 1860 Census record for Ft. Hembree, is William Aldridge same age and birth place: Greenville County Greenville District SC. I think william was splitting his time between the two family farms.


The Sophronia listed as living with James is actually Sofronia Dianah Cole and she had a baby girl at the time the cenus was taken, but the child is not listed, even though other children under a year old were listed as members of other families. Here is why I think this happened. The baby was not James'.


I know this because the baby grew up to be Othenia Cole Dockery. I have her death certificate. It shows her mother is Sophronia Cole and her father as Ike Stallcup. She was born July 15, 1859. I also found Sophronia Dianah Cole Aldridge's grave in an overgrown hilltop cemetery outside Murphy. More on this later.


James and Wlliam along with 73 other men from Cherokee County, NC joined the Confederacy by signing up at Valley Town (now Andrews) on June 1, 1861. Both were originally members of the 15th North Carolina Volunteers, which later became The 25th North Carolina Infantry, CSA. Both were in Company D, which was made up almost entirely of men from Cherokee County.


William F. got sick in late Febuary of 1862 and died "at home near Murphy of a cough" related illness on March 22, 1862. James was appointed adminstrator of his brothers affairs. My guess is "near Murphy" means the Abner Chastain farm in Ft. Hembree. He never had a wife or children. He had lied about his age to join the CSA with his brother and was probably only about 17 or 18 when he died. I have his full military records.


James was wounded in the arm at Malvern Hill and again in the jaw and thigh at Globe Tavern. He returned to Murphy in September of 1864. He was reported "absent wounded" for November and December of 1864 and written off as a deserter in January 1865.


The 1870 Census for Murphy, NC shows James, Sophronia and the now 11 year old girl Otheina all living together. Sophronia Dianah Cole died somewhere between 1870 and (I believe) 1874. Here's why I believe this: James was the father of twins born Jul 24, 1874. One of those twins was a girl named Ida Alma "Allie" Aldridge. The other was a boy named J. S. Aldridge. His grave has the word "twin" carved under his name and his grave is less than four feet to the right of Sofronia Aldridge (with an "f"). There are no dates on either stone.


Allie married Gus Hampton and her grand daughter Edith Byrd told me (before she knew I had found this grave site) that she and her mother "used to go to Murphy and look all over Cherokee county for the grave of Grand Momma Allie's baby brother. What strikes me as odd is that the stones on both graves look like they were about the same age, shape (field stones) and the names carved by the same hand. "A's" "D's" "R's" and so on look like the same person used a chisel to make the letter on both stones.


The court records in Murphy then show James as filing for a marriage liscense along with "Saphronie" Stallcup on Feb. 21 1880 and the marriage taking place on Feb 27, 1880. the major thing here is that the license was filed under the name Eldridge instead of Aldridge. As far as I know, this is the first time the name Eldridge was used officially to disignate a member of this family. I think of several scenerios that might prompt a man to want to do this, but it is all pure speculation. If you are interested I'll share those with you in another email.


The 1880 Census shows James and Sophronia Eldridge with two children: Othenia age 21 and Ida Alma "Allie" age 6.


The 1890 Census was apparently distroyed by fire so the next time the family appears is in 1900, by which time Allie is married to Gus. But Robert Lee, Joseph Edly (mispelled George B.) Mary A. and Dixie S. are all present.


...For a couple of years now I have suspected our great grandfather's middle name was Henry. I had two reasons for thinking this. The first was what appears to be an "H" for a middle initial between his first and last name on the legal document he signed when he took possession of William's meager belongings after he died. It took almost a year for paper work to go through the Confederate Army channels and for a lawyer to draw up the paperwork. The lawyer wrote the letter, then signed James' name at the bottom with what looks like James H. Aldridge. James then made his "mark" which was an "x" directly on top of what appears to me to be that middle initial. All I have is a photo copy of a microfilm copy of the original which is in the National Archives in Washington DC. But all the words are fairly easy to read. It's just that the "mark" either covers this other letter or the mark is more than an "x" and gives the illusion of another letter. That was my first clue that his middle name started with an "H".


Second clue: When I went to Morganton to get a copy of Uncle Joseph Edly Eldridge's death certificate I was surprised to see his middle name listed as Henry. The death certificate reads Joseph Henry Eldridge. What was even more surprising is that Joe's father is listed as James Edly Eldridge. Since we know for certain that it was Joe whose middle name was "Edly" it appears that whoever was either giving the information or taking down the information, got the two middle names mixed up and switched them.

I know Abner Chastain liked to travel and I know he left Murphy and headed up a wagon train with over 200 wagons in it and took the whole bunch to Colorado where he established a church. He's pretty well documented. It is obvious to me that for whatever reason he took the boys under his wing when they came to Murphy. He arrived in Murphy in time for the 1850 Census. He had been in Union County GA prior to that. I also know his family left Pendleton pretty early on after he was born, but he may have still had family there that knew the Aldridges. Hence a reason to move to Murphy. There is also a Mary in Murphy (forgot her married name) who is the same age as James sister Mary and who is also from Greenville county, Greenville District. Maybe older sister Mary got married, moved to Murphy and the boys followed. I have no idea where Martha went. Yet.


After reading your notes, I have a hunch your Henry Arley, Arledge, Aldridge/ Eldridge is connected to my James in some way. I'll spend the rest of today searching that area on ancestry.com., but if you have a better source of information I'll go there. I'm not that far from Pendleton, SC it would be a day trip for me to run over there and check the court records if you could tell me what to look for.


I know James and Sophronia are both buried in the Hampton Methodist Cemetery in Murphy under the name Aldridge. I even have Sophronia's obit. Right beside them is Robert Lee Eldridge. It appears that someone felt as strongly about the Eldridge name as they did about the Aldridge name.


By the way I think the Ike Stallcup who fathered Othenia Cole was a much older third cousin to Sophronia Dianah Cole. And, get this, it appears his wife's name was Jenitia Cole, he was from New York and over 50 years old when SDC got pregnant. For whatever reason, James and his family took care of Othenia as one of their own from the time she was born until she died.


As for Allie and her twin brother J S Aldridge, well, short of DNA test I guess I'll never know if the mother was Sophronia Cole or Sophronia Stallcup. If the mother was Sophronia Cole she probably died giving birth to the twins or shortly after along with the boy. If Sophronia Stallcup was the mother then S.Cole would have had to die sometime after the 1870 Census but prior to S. Stallcup getting pregnant out of wedlock 9 months before July of 1874 when the twins were born. Then James, S.Stallcup and the baby Allie and the girl Othenia would have to just live together until they suddenly decided to change the last name, get married in Feb of 1880, register with the Census under the new name, then start having children one after another through out the 1880's.


Sophronia Stallcup claims to have given birth to 6 children and 5 are living in 1900. The only problem with this is there are two infant graves in Murphy. One is right between Robert Lee Eldridge (he died instantly when hit by a train in the switching yard at the copper mine in CopperHill TN in 1920) and his mother Sophronia Stallcup Aldridge. The other infant is the JS Aldridge "twin". If you count Allie, Robert, Joe, Mary and Dixie and the baby in the Hampton Methodist Cemetery that's 6 born and 5 living. Othenia is listed as a step-daughter in 1900, so she doesn't count.


Allie's death cert. lists mother as Sophronia S. Stallcup and father unknown, but that was 22 years after James died and it was the information was provided by a grand child who probably knew nothing of her grandfather James.


Also, when Allie's husband Gus Hampton decided to get delayed birth certificates for all his family, Allie's last name is listed as Stallcup. Only in generalized genealogies does she show up as Alderage, Aldridge, Eldridge, or Alldredge.


Even the front cover of James' Civil War pay voucher shows the name spelled two different ways: "Alldredge" on the top and "Aldridge" on the bottom of the same page. I guess one big question I've had through out all of this, since I am a self taught genealogist, is exactly how important is the spelling of these last names?


Later...

I am also 99.9% certain that James first wife, Sofronia Dianah Cole, only had the one child and that she died sometime shortly after 1870. Sophronia Suzanne Stallcup, James' second wife is the mother of the twins, J. S. Aldridge (male) and Ida Alma "Allie" Aldridge. The boy died sometime shortly after his birth and Allie went on to marry Gus Hampton.

I know the boys stayed with Abner Chastain when they came to Cherokee county, NC. He was old enough to be their father and was probably a family friend. If i can connect Abner to one of the six Aldridge families living in the Pendleton, Abbeville, Greenville, Laurens area of SC prior to 1850, then that family is probably the parents of James and William.


==========================

SEARCHING FOR HIS FATHER

Note from Pam Wilson: The only names in the 1840 census that are close are these "ELIDGE" families. However, in researching these families, I haven't been able to find a connection to James Henry Aldridge/Eldridge. The two best trees I've found for these families are: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/42714400/person/19881789004 and http://paulwagnon.startlogic.com/elledge.htm. However, although the names Abraham and Ephraim are linked in this family, the ages and census date listed for 1840 (below) don't match, and so it is puzzling to try to interpret. There is an Abraham Elledge born 1760 (a Revolutionary War soldier) who is listed in Georgia in 1840, where he died the same year. It is unlikely, then, that he is the elder man listed in Greenville County in 1840. The other Abraham that appears on the Elledge family tree was born in 1812 and died in 1879. The primary Ephraim Elledge was born in 1870 and died in 1850. If the names and data were reversed on the 1840 census, then these would better match.

1840 census Greenville District, South Carolina

Elidge Abraham 1-1-0-0-0-0-0-0-1//0-0-0-1-0-1-1// (1 male under 5, 1 male 5-10, 1 male 60-70; 1 female 15-20, 1 female 30-40 and one 40-50) Elidge Ephraim 1-0-0-0-0-1//0-0-0-1// (1 male under 5, 1 male 30-40; 1 female 15-20)

However, the rest of the Elledge family seems to be next county over in Laurens, and the elder Ephraim seems to be there, with his two oldest sons Isaac and Jacob, and his possible brother or cousin, the elder Jacob, and a Joshua who could be either the son of Ephraim or or the elder Jacob. 1840 census Laurens District South Carolina

Elledge Ephraim (4 males, 3 females; oldest male 60-70, no young children) Elledge Isaac (2 males, one female; oldest male 30-40, 1 son under 5) Elledge Jacob (3 males, 1 female; oldest male 30-40)

Elledge Jacob (Sr) (4 males, oldest 50-60; 2 females) Elledge Joshua (3/3: oldest male 20-30 with 2 under 5; 2 women 20-30 with 1 under 5)

All in all, my gut feeling is that this is not the family we are looking for, but it *is* a lead worth checking out.

==============

I think it is more likely that James was somehow connected to one of these Henry Arledges (aka Aldridge and Eldridge) who spent time in Old Pendleton District of South Carolina in the early 19th century, having come south from Randolph County, North Carolina and intermarried with the Garner family.

George Edmonson JP. William Robertson

In 1810 Pendleton Dist SC there is no Henry Arl/Ald/Eldridge listed, but there are some Garners:

Side Note: Members of the Abraham Chastain family went from Greenville District SC to Hall CO GA c 1820. e.g. son William Chastain. This may explain why the Aldridges are living with Chastains in Cherokee County, NC in the 1860 census. Perhaps there was a move from Pendleton/Greenville to Georgia and then up into Cherokee County, NC.

Is he the Henry ALDRIDGE in 1820 Hall County GA (Captain Reid's District)? (he is the only Henry Aldridge, Eldridge, Arledge in the south that I can find) 1 male 16-26, 1 female 16-26

[On July 8, 1817, the Cherokee Indians signed the Treaty of the Cherokee Agency giving up lands in north central and northeastern Georgia. By an act of Dec. 15, 1818, the Georgia General Assembly created Gwinnett, Habersham, and Hall counties from the ceded lands (Ga. Laws 1818, p. 27). Additional Cherokee lands were ceded to Georgia on Feb. 27, 1819 in the Treaty of Washington, and in an act of Dec. 21, 1819, the legislature added some of ceded land to the western portions of Habersham and Hall counties (Ga. Laws 1819, p. 23). Hall County was named for Lyman Hall, one of Georgia's three signers of the Declaration of Independence. No new counties were created from Hall County; however, on numerous occasions between 1818 and 1870, the legislature transferred small amounts of land between Hall and neighboring counties.--http://georgiainfo.galileo.usg.edu/histcountymaps/hallhistmaps.htm]

1830--no Henry Eldridge in southern states

Then there is the Henry Aldridge family in Campbell County, GA, which was farther south and west than Hall County (it is SW of current Atlanta):

[Campbell County was created on Dec. 20, 1828 by an act of the General Assembly. Formed from portions of Carroll, Coweta, DeKalb, and Fayette counties, the county was named for noted politician and lawyer Col. Duncan G. Campbell (1787-1828). A portion of Campbell County was used to create Douglas County in 1870. On Aug. 9, 1929, the legislature passed an act to merge Campbell County with Fulton County, providing voters of both counties approved the merger in separate referendums. Voters approved the consolidation, which became effective Jan. 1, 1932.--http://georgiainfo.galileo.usg.edu/histcountymaps/campbellhistmaps.htm]
