"Unwritten Tragedy" of Ozial Eldridge

  of 789

While researching my Eldred ancestors in Washington Co., NY, I came across the following on a microfilm of miscellaneous county records:

"In an old abandoned grave yard on Frank Ayers farm on the new turnpike, are the following old stones.

Ozial Eldridge, died Sept. 20, 1821 in his 30th year.
Susannah, wife of Ozial Eldridge, died Aug. 26, 1821 in her 32nd year.
Polly Ann Eldridge, daughter of Ozial and Susannah died Oct. 2, 1821.

This seems to be one of these unwritten tragedies of life and death."
