In the 1850 Dallas Co., MO. censustheir is a John Eldrige living with Samule Stites and Jinsey.It also said that Samuel was born in North Carolina.Which would still match in with the John Stites of NC family.Please let me know when you find out more!
Do you have the children of Samuel Stites and Jinsey? I'm assuming John Eldridge's mother was a Stites, their daughter?John was 3 years old in the 1850 census. firstname.lastname@example.orgCary Campbell
