Michael Micajah Aldridge, son of Richard Aldridge
I'm looking for information about Elizabeth Moore, who was married to Micajah Aldridge; they lived in the mid 1800s in Marshfield, MO. Micajahtook as his wards the nieces of his sister in law and her husband (Leah Moore Good and Christian Charles L. Good; Leah died in 1859 and and Christian died in 1860). Oneof the nieces, Nancy Elizabeth "Betty" Good Shook, was my great-great grandmother. Elizabeth Moore Aldridge had another sister in Marshfield ("Juda") who married Christian Good after Leah Moore Good died. When both of the parents were dead, Micajah was guardian to two of the daughters of his wife's sister. I have reached a dead end with Leah Moore, but was hoping that someone in the Aldridge family might have information about the parents of Elizabeth Moore Aldridge. My great-great grandmother was married at the Aldridge house.
One of Leah's great-granddaughters was told the family came from England and ended up in North Carolina.
Thank you. I do know that Mr. Aldridge was an important citizen in Marshfield.
