FRANCIS ELDRIDGE 1807-????

Francis Eldridge is shown as a stage driver aged 18 born New York in the 1850 New York census in the household Maria Eldridge, a seamstress aged 43 born New York. Frances was shown age 22 born New York when he married Antonette Winham, shown age 18 born Bowery New York, on 11 Feb 1854 in New York.

A Francis Eldridge aged 48 born New York, is shown in the 1855 New York State census as the widowed father of Francis Eldridge, a carman aged 24 and his wife Antonette aged 19 and their 6 month old daughter Maria.

The 1860 US census for New York records Francis as a stage driver aged 28 born New York with Antonette aged 24 and children Frances age 5, Camilla age 4 and William age 2 all born New York. The 5 year old Frances is thought to be the child Maria in 1855.

The 1870 US census for New York records a Frank Eldridge as a stage driver aged 38 born New York with a Maria Eldridge age 66 born Vermont and Cormilia Eldridge age 9 and William Eldridge age 12 both born New York. This household is thought to be Francis, the 18 year old stage driver in the 1850 census with his mother and son William aged 2 in 1860. It is unclear if Cormilia is Camilla with her age incorrectly shown.

The 1880 census for Saint Louis, Missouri records Frank Eldridge as a car driver aged 48 born New York with a wife Mary aged 34 born Ireland, son William aged 23 and daughters Mary aged 14, Gertrude aged 7, Hattie aged 5 and Kate age 4, all born New York. It is thought that Mary may not be Frank's daughter.

Speculation: It is thought that the William Eldridge aged 25 who married Katie McGrath aged 29 on 16 May 1882 at Elizabeth in Union County, New Jersey is William the son of Francis in the earlier census records. He is shown born New York and aged 42, 55 and 64 in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census for Elizabeth.
