“Mr. W. N. ALDREDGE DEAD

“Old Confederate Veteran Buried Sunday Afternoon.

“Mr. William H. [or N.?] ALDRIDGE, aged 61 years, died at his residence, No. 1602 First avenue, Saturday night at ten o’clock, after an illness of six days of dysentery. Mr. ALDRIDGE is survived by four sons and three daughters. He was a member of the Baptist church. During the war of the secession, he was a member of Co. B, First Alabama volunteer engineer corps, and served with the Army of Northern Virginia. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. H. C. HURLEY at the residence, Sunday afternoon at two o’clock. The interment was in the Clapp’s factory cemetery [north of Columbus in Muscogee County, Georgia), and the following gentlemen acted as pall bearers: Messrs. W. J. HILL, R. W. SHORT, D. C. MADDEN, W. T. TISON, D. W. GILL and J. C. SAYERS.”

[Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer-Sun, Tuesday, 11 DEC 1900. ALDREDGE and ALDRIDGE spelled as they appear in the original; title clearly shows “W. N.” - Text of article not plain - may be “W. N.” or “W. H.” ]

Rev. H. C. HURLEY served the Rose Hill Baptist Church (and perhaps others) in Columbus, GA.

Daniel B. OLDS’ list of death notices from the Columbus newspapers shows Mr. J. K. ALDREDGE, published 10 FEB 1901 in the Enquirer-Sun, but I don’t have the text for that piece.

I am interested in learning more about William’s background and family connections, as well as the identities of his pallbearers. Thanks – John in TX

I looked up the 1900 census for him and he was born May 1840 in GA, and the spelling is "Alredge." Which is the way the Arledges pronounce their name. He could be an Arledge and some of them were not aware of how their name was supposed to be spelled and accepted the Aldridge spelling from those who wrote for them. I have the info for the Arledges. Samuel came thru GA 1830 and went to AL about 1845. His brothers may have some thru GA too and come on to AL.

Thanks for posting the data about William Nicholas ALDRIDGE - I'm glad to have it. Do you have any information on his Civil War service? I'm trying to confirm the unit he served in. Thanks again - John in Columbus

W. Nicholas & Susan (McDOWELL) ALDRIDGE family

Classification: Death
I came across the following article - it is evidently the family of William Nicholas, who appear on Hamilton Avenue in 1900. The working daughter is evidently Margaret ALDRIDGE (b. JAN 1870) who was employed in a cotton mill in 1900.

“A PATHETIC CASE: ALDRIDGE Family, on Hamilton Avenue, is Suffering. // The attention of the Enquirer-Sun has been called to a very pathetic case of want in the upper part of the city. In a little house on Hamilton avenue, just above Eighteenth street, between the stores of Mr. ODOM and Mr. C. BATISTINI, there lives a family by the name of ALDRIDGE. This family consists of an old father and mother, and two daughters, one of whom is helpless. The other daughter works in the mills and the entire family is dependent upon her efforts. It is understood that the family is in want, and that medical attention is badly needed. Members of the family have tried to get various physicians of the city to the scene, but none of them called upon have responded, notwithstanding the serious condition of the family. It is a case in which instant relief should be afforded by the good people of that portion of the city.”

[Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Tuesday, 27 JUN 1899, p. 3.]

Also, there is an "Almeda ALDRED," born in May 1840 - but recorded as married - staying in the jail in Columbus on the 1900 census (City Ward 4, General Militia District #668 Lower Town District, SD 4 ED 90, sheet 11B / p. 196B, stamped) - could this be the daughter of Nicholas and Susan?

I found a record that a Susan ALDRIDGE is buried in Pauper Section 1, Lot 20, at Riverdale in Columbus, but no dates. Do you have her death or burial date? I suspect it would be between the above, in June 1899, and the census in June 1900. I'm trying to locate a published death notice for her, but can't get a match. Thanks! - jml
