- Mar 1, 2011You probably already have these -
these look like 'your family' -
1910 Big Creek, Houston, Alabama
Eldridge, Nathan/47:GA:GA:GA, Idah/34:AL:AL:AL,
- married.1 19 years, 7 children 7 living,

1930 Schoolhouse Precinct 6, Geneva, Alabama
Eldridge, Authur/29, Maud/25, Carl/8, Billie Gene/5, Earnest M/1+7m
Now to looking back in time again -
1900 Dothan, Henry, Alabama
Eldridge, Nathanial/38:GA:GA:GA/farmer, Ida/25:AL:GA:GA,
- married 8 years, 4 children 4 living
(), Alice/7, Beattress/5, Hozie/3, Grady/6m

You said something about "moved to fl where he died" ?
Alabama Deaths, 1908-59
Name: Nathan Eldridge
Death Date: 23 Jul 1919
Death County: Geneva
Volume: 12 - Roll: 1 - Page #: 28
This looks like a logical match for Nathan -
in Dale County AL, where Nathan got married -
1880 Brannans Beat No 6, Dale, Alabama - page 10 of 13
(), Jane/26/dau, Hattie/18/dau, Nathan:GA:GA:GA/18/son,
(), Lucy/3m:AL:GA:GA/gdau, John/1m:AL:GA:GA/gson
1870 Georgetown, Quitman, Georgia
Eldridge, Harriett/48:SC, Martha/12:GA, Nathan/10:GA, Harriett/10:GA
Hmm - this is not the mother that you have listed for Nathan.
There is an Ancestry.com Public Member Tree that references a different 1880 census -
1880 Clayton, Barbour, Alabama
Eldridge, Daniel K/28:GA:GA:AL/farmer, Sallie/28:GA:GA:GA,
(), Alonzo/6:AL, Sou Dell/4, James L/2, Bessie M/3m
(), Nathan T/20:GA:GA:AL/bro, Jerrie M/21:GA:GA:AL/bro
Hmm - it *is* a Nathan T, but the age isn't quite right,
and his birthplaces don't quite match the 1900 census -
but it COULD be him. Let's trace him -
LOL! We arrive at the same town! (Georgetown)
Theat could be brother Jerrie, but where's brother Daniel?
1870 Georgetown, Quitman, Georgia
Eldridge, Jefferson/40:GA/welldigger, Nancy/46:GA,
(), William/16, James/14, Jerree/12, Adam/10,
(), Nathan/8, Peter/7, Leeman/6, Baber/5, Joe/2,
(), Oliver N C/18/female
And it STILL is not the mother that you have listed for Nathan!
Okay - here's brothers Jerry and Daniel with Nathan -
1860 District 749, Clay, Georgia - dated 11 June 1860
Eldredge, Jefferson/26:GA/welldigger, Elizabeth/25:GA,
(), Daniel/9, William/7, James/5, Jerry/2, Natheniel/1m
NOTE: so *this* "Natheniel" was born May 1860.
BUT - that's not the birth month-year listed on the 1900 census.
So - which Nathan/Nathaniel do you want to pick?
BTW - I do not trust that Ancestry.com Public Member Tree:
The tree lists Nathaniel T. Eldridge born NOV 1861 (GA),
with parents Joseph W. Eldridge & Mary Ann Edwards,
but then proceeds to reference the 1860-1870 census records
that show Jefferson Eldridge and Nancy and Elizabeth!
Do you have a census record of 'your' Nathaniel with parents?
