JASPER M ELDRIDGE 1824-1896

Jasper M Eldridge was recorded in the 1870 US census for Hamilton County in Tennessee as a farmer. In the 1880 census he is recorded at Harrison in James County, which was a County created on 30 Jan 1871 from a small portion of Bradley County and the eastern third of Hamilton County. James County was reincorporated into Hamilton County on 11 Dec 1919.

Jasper died in 1896 and his remains, together with those of his granddaughter Laura, were reinterred from the Harrison Cemetery to a new Harrison cemetery on 12 Sep 1938 due to the pending creation of the Chickamauga Dam which was to flood part of the town of Harrison. The dam on the Tennessee River was completed by the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1940.
