Was he living with a son William in Kershaw Co in 1840? There is a listing for a William ARLEDGE with only two men, one aged 20-30 and the other 70-80, which would be in the right age for Samuel.
There is a Fairfield Co, SC estate file for a Samuel Arledge in 1830: Arledge, Samuel 1830 Apt. 37, File 592. Which Samuel was this?
