First, in 2001, saw a posting on here from President of the Eskridge Family Association, and he said there were two Richard Eskridges in Caswell co., NC....Richard (Jr.)moved to Rutherford Co., Tn.--his wife's mother was Sarah Lea......Richard (Sr.)'s will(1816) was witnessed by Vincent Lea and Gabriel Lea.....several of Richard Eskridge's children settled in and around Roane Co., Tennessee.....
Other Eskridge names in Caswell co., NC...were Bird Eskridge on a deed in 1816 and SAMUEL Eskreidge marrying Sarah Dobbins on Oct. 30, 1829..Aron V. Lea wit:
Walker Eskridgwe married Matilda Lea 1827...this is all in Caswell co., NC
On Eunice Lea's will in 1825 (Caswell co., NC)..one of the witnesses was Samuel Eskridge
Richard Eskridge and different Leas were in Caswell co. as early as 1785...in fact he was a witness to the will of Mary Lea in 1784
Now for the Roane Co., Tennessee records.....
David Lea deeded land in 1813 to Samuel Eskridge...this must be a different generation Samuel...possible Richard sr.'s son as his children were supposed to have gone to Roane co., Tennessee or around it..
Roane co., Tennessee...in 1810 David Lee bought from a Thomas C. Clark...and Samuel Eskridge was witness..
Hope this helps..
