WILLIAM ELDRIDGE 1785-1857


William Eldridge was a farmer of Johnston County, North Carolina, United States. He made a will on 7 Nov 1856 which mentions his wife Abigail, son John who was the executor and daughters Polly Eldridge, Sarah Eldridge, Bethany Eldridge, Susannah Eldridge, Liza Rose, Elizabeth Hudson and Kitsey Lee. The will was proved in Aug 1857 and one of the witnesses to the will was Troy Eldridge who may have been his nephew.

William is thought to probably be a brother of John Eldridge and possibly a brother, or otherwise some how related, to Young Eldridge. These three people, together with their descendents, account for all the Eldridge people in the 1850 census in Johnston County.
