"William Alldredge died 1789 in Randolph County, North Carolina, and is buried in the MacMasters graveyard. The tombstone reads born 1729 died 1789. It is traditionally said that his full name was William Ezekiel Alldredge. The following children were named in his will. viz: Mary, William, Ezekiel, Bethana, John, Sarah, Isabel, Sophia, Rosannah, Susannah, Samuel, Aaron, Moses and Merriate.

 

The Earl of Granville made a grant of land in September 1758 to William Aldridge. This land at this date was in Orange County, later Randolph County. Randolph was formed 1779 from Guilford and Guilford formed 1771 from Rowan and Orange. In 1784 William Aldridge entered 200 acres on Sandy Creek Water. 14 Dec 1789 John Barker and Elizabeth Aldridge was named executors of the estate of William Aldridge, deceased of Randolph County, for 100 tract of 184 acres on Sandy Creek Water...and also all the estate right title claim. Thus Elizabeth Aldridge bei8ng the wife of the late William Aldridge. Her birth date and maiden name is not known. She died 29 Oct 1793 and is buried beside her husband."

 

NOTE: There are a number of web sites that claim his father was James Aldridge, the brother of the William Aldridge claimed in this Coffey family genealogy. Subject for future research?

 

Also I see a note attached to the Kivet family indicating that the Aldridge's were or became Quakers when they moved to North Carolina. This was written by Tim Peterman. However search of “Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy. Vol. I: (North Carolina Yearly Meeting)” yielded no matches.

 


Spouse:           Elizabeth

Misc. Notes

Many web sites report she was “Elizabeth Symons, born 1734 in Randolph Co., NC. However her husband’s mother had this name, not clear what is going on!
