Generation No. 1

 

1.  ISAAC8 ARLEDGE  (JONATHAN7, AMOS6, ISAAC5, WILLIAM4 ALDRIDGE, CLEMENT3, CLEMENT2, JOHN ALDRICH/1) was born 12 Dec 1814 in Green River Cove, Rutherford (now Polk) Co, NC, and died 23 Jun 1900 in Henderson Co., NC (bur. Hendersonville Cem) [WILL].  He married (2) REBECCA HOLBERT 29 Jul 1847 in Polk Co, NC, daughter of BENJAMIN HOLBERT and CHARITY STOVER.  She was born 08 May 1825 in [or 9 May 1826?] Holbert's Cove, Rutherford (now Polk) Co, NC, and died 19 Nov 1908 in Henderson Co, NC (Bur. Oakdale Cemetary, Hendersonville).

Moved to Henderson County in the 1840s, served as sheriff there in the 1840's and 1850's. His son Zeb was Chief of Police in Hendersonville for many years.

1850 census, Henderson Co NC (household #23, microfilm p. 213; also listed again as household #50, microfilm p. 216):

 

ISAAC ALDRIDGE 34 M farmer NC

Rebecca Aldridge 26 F NC

Lousome (?) Aldridge 2 M NC

Richard Aldridge 16 M laborer NC

 

The LDS IGI lists a son Larson born 1848 and Richard born 1849, but I have found no mention of these sons in either census/county records or family tradition. I believe the "Larson" is a mis-transcription of Louisa. I have no idea who the Richard listed in the 1850 census was, unless it was a son Isaac had before he married Rebecca, who would not have been old enough to be the mother of a 16-year-old at age 26.
