Hi, My ancestor was Elizabeth Eskridge, born in Ohio on December 12, 1831.The oldest of 10 children. Brothers and sisters were; Okley-October 30, 1833 Mary Ann-May 16, 1836 Seth-June 30, 1839 Baziah-March 23, 1840 James K. Polk-January 5, 1844 Eliza Jane-October 30, 1850 Nancy Emley-May 30, 1851 George W.-June 29, 1853 Pery Martin-May 26, 1866
Parents were Mary and Richard Eskridge.
Okley, Seth, Baziah,and James K. were said to have served in the Union army during the Civil War.Two of these brothrs died in Libby prison.The source of this information was oral family history as told to my grandmother by Elizabeth.
Any help in placing my ancestors into the Eskridge lineage would be appreciated.Thank you.
