Pam, thanks for your e-mail and genforum response. I had hunch Louisa

may be connected to Samuel as he is the only Aldridge in Harris Co. in

1840.

This is all I know of Louisa:

She married Thomas Jefferson Harrington (son of Cyrus) on Dec. 15, 1841

in Harris Co. GA. Thomas was born Aug. 12, 1823 Harris Co. and died

March 2, 1889 in Palo Pinto County, Texas. According to Gene Pitman, a

descendant of Thomas J. Harrington through his second wife, Louisa was

admitted to the Milledgeville, GA state hospital in 1851. Her death

certificate (which Gene has, but hasn't found to send me yet) states she

died of ulcerative colitis on May 5, 1854 in the hospital. Thomas and

Louisa had three children together - Sofrana b. 1845, Cyrus b. 1847 and

John Allen b. December 24, 1849. In 1850 Thomas, Sofrana and Cyrus are

living in Harris Co. I have not found where Louisa and baby John are

(perhaps being cared for by relatives?). After Louisa died, Thomas

remarried to Mary Henderson and had more children.

John Allen reappears on the 1860 census (Wolf's Creek, St. Clair Co. AL)

with the rest of the family. He is now age 10.

By 1870, they are back in Harris GA.

By 1880, John Allen Harrington has married Anna America Massey (dau. of

John J. and granddaughter of Pleasant Massey who also was born in SC and

died in Coosa Co. AL).

John Allen and Anna had at least 8 children, and they moved from Lee 

Co. AL to Cass Co. TX where Anna died in 1903. John Allen remarried and

had more children.

John later lived in Miller Co. AR and stayed in the Texarkana area until

his death on Jan. 5, 1936. His daughter Hester Lee Harrington is my

husband's great grandmother. She married George Gilbert Moulder.

I have more on their descendants, but do not know much more about

Louisa. I look forward to reading what you have on your website.


Thanks again for your e-mail - please feel free to clue me in.
