JOHN ELDRIDGE ????-1853

John Eldridge was a resident of Gonzales County, Texas. Documents filed on 20 Oct 1853 with the Court for that county show that he died intestate on 14 Oct 1853 and on 3 Nov 1853 his eldest heir, Thomas Eldridge, was appointed to administer his estate.

An Oct 1860 petition, incorrecly showing that John died on 14 Nov 1853, lists the heirs of his estate as being Thomas, Houston and John W Eldridge, Joseph Tronson and his daughter Elizabeth C, daughter of his late wife Caroline who was a daughter of John, Jeremiah Leehan and his infant child, being the child of his late wife Mary Ann who was a daughter of John and the minor children of Elizabeth Whitehead now deceased daughter of John, being Ann Eliza, George, Joseph and John Whitehead.

An Aug 1866 petition, filed by Samuel H Eldridge, details that Thomas had died before he had fully administered the estate and that John W Eldridge had died without issue. This petition details the heirs of the estate as Elizabeth Tronson, Annora Leehan, Ann, George and Joseph Whitehead, Elizabeth, Leanna and William Thomas Eldridge, minor children of Thomas Eldridge deceased and Samuel H Eldridge.

John is believed to be the John Elderidge at Guadalupe River in Gonzales County in the 1850 census shown age 45 born Mississippi, with presumably his children Caroline age 14, Huston age 12 and James age 10. This James is thought to be John W. Ages shown in the 1860 census for Gonzales for Thomas Eldridge, aged 28 and H Eldridge aged 24 in his household (presumably his brother Samuel Houston) suggest the ages shown in the 1850 census record may be lower than their actual ages at the time.

Note: This Eldridge family is included in a 1986 publication, The History of Gonzales County, Texas by The Gonzales County Historical Commission, as F197 at page 296. Some of the detail shown differs from that shown in the petitions and the ancestry of John shown therein has not been able to be verified.
