Below are selected excerpts from the following three archive postings kindly submitted by an Eldridge researcher in 1999 at Eldrige-L.I am looking for someone who might have copies of the subsequently published Revisions 3, 4 and 5 of the 1985 book:Pocahontas Decsendants (Brown, et al).If so, it would appreciated if you could transcribe any mention of the Eldridge and Eldridge descendant families.
Also, looking for copy of one original source cited below: "Hearst's Sunday American, Atlanta, April 12, 1931."

----------------------------------------------------------- 5 Martha Bolling, m. Thomas Eldridge. Elizabeth Jones, second wife of Thomas Eldridge, is shown as the dau. of Sarah Edmunds Jones.
51 Thomas Eldridge III (1730's- ) who probably moved to Goochland County, m. Winifred Jones Miller, dau. of William Miller, Sheriff of Goochland County in 1741, and his wife, Mary Heath Miller, dau. of Thomas Heath and Winifred Jones Heath, dau. of Robert Jones, Jr., and his wife Sarah Garlington (dau. of Christopher Garlington, Jr., and his wife Margaret). Thomas Heath's mother was Mary Lee, dau. of Capt. William Lee and grand-dau. of Col. Richard Lee
NOTE: There is some confusion concerning the wife or wives of Thomas Eldridge III. One source states that he married, first, Winifred Jones of Goochland County, and that he married, second, in 1776, Winifred Anne Miller Povall, dau. of William Miller and widow of Robert Povall. And GOODE says that he married H. E. Read (see above).
