James Eldridge is reported as having been born at St Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada when he died on 9 May 1877 at Eastport in Washington County, Maine, United States. He is recorded at Eastport in US census records from 1840 to 1870 shown born in Maine in 1850 and 1870 and in New Brunswick in 1860.
It is a possibility that James may be another child of Joseph Eldridge and Elizabeth Guptill. Their children were all born in Grand Manan, or New Brunswick and their five known sons all moved to Maine, USA, specifically Charlotte and Washington Counties.
