PETER ELDRIDGE 1797-1884


Peter Eldridge was a Baptist preacher and farmer and he is shown in census records at Sabine County, Texas, United States in 1850 and at Burnet County, Texas in 1860 and 1870 as being born in North Carolina.

Peter is believed to have married four times. In the 1850 census he is with a Mary with Wiggins surname children in the household and in the 1860 and 1870 he is with Sarah. His headstone in the Old Rock Cemetery at Somerset, Atascosa County, Texas spells his surname as Eldredge and a memorial to his service in the US war of 1812 spells his surname as Eldridge. The former spelling is used by some of his descendents.
