ZACHARIAH ELDRIDGE 1820-????


Zachariah Eldridge purchased two 160 acre parcels of land in Overton County, Tennessee, United States in 1824. The survey describes both parcels as being on the head waters of Roaring River with one being in Eldridges cove. This Zachariah Eldridge is probably the Zachariah Eldridge shown as the head of a household of 13 people in the 1820 census at Overton County. He is thought to be the husband of a Maryann Eldridge shown as the head of a household of 11 people at Overton in the 1830 census. This Zachariah is probably related, possibly as a brother, to John Eldridge.

The 1850 census at Overton County shows a Mary Eldridge aged 68 born Tennessee as the head of a household comprising Townsend age 27, Hannah age 25, Susan age 24, James age 23 and Allen Eldridge age 18. They are all assumed to be children of Mary who is shown in the 1860 census at Overton Co as Mary A aged 88 and in the 1870 census at Overton Co as Mary aged 86.

Zachariah Eldridge born about 1820 and Jefferson Eldridge born about 1822 are thought to be also children of Mary and Zachariah Eldridge.
