Howdy,You're 2 stories didn't click for my branch, so far. How does mine sound? William Winston Aldridge (born Ark 1864-1916) was a farmer & an optomotrist in Arkansas. Married to Preshie Evelyn Reid (born Ark 1874-1948) then had 5 children. His parents died early leaving a big gap in our tree. His father Aldridge died 1864 before he was born,possibly in the Civil war & born in AL. His Mom was A. Mann (born Ark 1843-1874). That's all I have on them. Any help would be huge. Thanks!
