About William Henry Aldridge

Married his first cousin Rebecca Murray, daughter of Ben Murray, after she was widowed.

On August 22, 1869, William Henry Aldridge marries his first cousin, Rebecca Ann Murray Hudson, a young widow. He is her junior by about 6 years. "Becca Ann" as she is known, accompanied her parents, brother Jesse and his wife Jenny Poplin Murray, and cousins James Washington Turner and Wesley Murray, to Arkansas. By 1870, only her mother Martha and the children of Jesse and Jenny had returned alive to Stanly County, along with Becca and her daughter Mary, who was born in Arkansas. Rebecca's first husband, Henry H. Hudson, enlisted in the War in Troy, NC in 1861 under W. D. Barringer. In October of that year, he is present during the muster, but listed as "sick in tent". By September of 1862, he is listed as absent and had went to the hospital in August. He is listed in military records as having died on October 25, 1862 of illness in Richmond, Virginia. The disease is named in the records as "More bund", which I take as meaning moribund, or near death.
