The Alexander Rodman Arledge Family:  A Pioneer Family in the American Northwest

Part I: The Pioneers

Alexander Rodman Arledge (1831-1927) was the oldest son of Lemuel Harvey Arledge (c. 1808-1873), grandson of Jonathan Arledge and great-grandson of Caleb Arledge, whose parents were Isaac and Anna Arledge of Fairfield County, SC.

Jonathan had migrated from the Anson County area of NC up through Tennessee and into Hopkins County, KY.  His son Lemuel lived in Illinois and Iowa, and died in Nebraska. Alex and his family migrated northward and westward from Illinois into Minnesota, South Dakota, Alberta (Canada), Colorado and Washington State.
