About Margaret Jane Ross Aldridge

From Pam Wilson's Arledge Family History Project:

Don Aldridge wrote:

A MAN AND A SMALL GIRL WERE TRAVELING FROM SOMEWHERE IN STANLY COUNTY, NC TO ANSON COUNTY, NC. ROCKY RIVER WAS TOO SWOLLEN TO FORD AND CALEB ALDRIDGE ASKED THE MAN AND HIS LITTLE GIRL TO SPEND THE NIGHT AT HIS HOUSE.

THE NEXT DAY THE MAN SAID HE HAD TO GO REGARDLESS OF THE RIVER. CALEB OFFERED TO KEEP THE LITTLE GIRL  UNTIL HE CAME BACK.  THE MAN WAS SUPPOSEDLY SWEPT AWAY BY THE HIGH WATER.  

THE LITTLE GIRL ONLY KNEW THAT HER NAME WAS MARGARET JANE BUT SHE DID NOT KNOW HER LAST NAME. CALEB COULD NOT FIND THE IDENTITY OF THE LITTLE GIRL SO HE RAISED HER AS MARGARET JANE ALDRIDGE.

SHE MARRIED GREEN WESLEY SIMPSON. HE INVESTIGATED AND DISCOVERED THAT HER FAMILY NAME WAS ROSS. THEY ARE BOTH BURIED AT REHOBETH METHODIST CHURCH NEAR AQUADALE,NC.

GWS BIBLE: "MARGARET JANE SIMPSON THE WIFE OF G W SIMPSON DIED ON WEDNESDAY EVENING THE 26 DAY OF OCTOBER 1887. WE WERE MARRIED APRIL THE 20, 1851 ON SUNDAY. A.J. SHANKLE OFFICIATED THE CEREMONY. WE BOTH WERE TOGETHER 36 YEARS 6 MONTHS AND 6 DAYS."
