About Millard "Filmore" Arledge

NC Death Cert. #25422 COD: Terminal Pneumonia due to Pulmonary Edema, Chronic Myocarditis and Nephritis

Filmore Arledge was raised in the Macedonia community of Henderson County. He married Ella Leona Rhodes on Nov. 30, 1890. For 18 years, the couple lived on property in the Macedonia community he inherited from his father. He was a charter member of Macedonia Baptist Church in 1898 and the children attended the Macedonia School. In 1908, he bought five acres in East Flat Rock. He was a carpenter, helping in the building of the textile mill and mill houses. In 1910, the family moved to a house on Depot Street. He was a charter member of East Flat Rock First Baptist Church and one of the first trustees. He was also a magistrate and used the front hall of his home as his office. He would walk from East Flat Rock to the Macedonia community every week to visit his family, wading Green River at Buckeye Ford, sometimes across ice. The family moved to Lynn, then Tryon and finally to Saluda, where he found carpentry work on summer homes in the communities. He built a large home above the Saluda train depot. He had a garden on the side of a hill across the tracks, where U.S. 176 is today. The house burned and the family lived at the old Saluda Cafe beside the depot until he bought a house on today's Substation Street. Later he sold this house and bought a large, two-story house near the Saluda Cemetery. The grave stones of he and his wife face the backyard of their home. After his wife's death in 1947, he married Eva Moody Simpson, a widow.
