He was a son of William Akridge and lucinda ? - Both born in Virginia.

From the book, LINCOLN'S BIRTH COUNTY IN THE CIVIL WAR, by Ed Benningfield: JOHN M. AKERIDGE was a younger son of William and Lucinda Akeridge. John was a private in Company E, 37th Ky. Infantry, Union Army. He enrolled on August 28, 1863 and mustered in at Glasgow, Kentucky. He apparently deserted on December 24, 1863 at Glasgow, Ky. He filed for a pension on July 31, 1883.

He came to LaRue County from Green County after the war. He lived near another Civil War veteran, William Evans, at Leafdale. John died on September 15, 1927 and is buried on the Nicholas Farm cemetery near Leafdale. An affidavit in Deed Book 47, Page 401, lists his heirs. He left surviving him his wife, Nancy E. Akeridge, age 70 of Athertonville; sons, Columbus, Blaine, Mitchell; and daughters, Mary B. Blanton, Sudie Merrifield, and Blanche Flowers. His pension file card states he died on September 20, 1927. I don't know which date is correct.

In the 1900 LaRue County Census, John M. Akridge was family 245. He was 43 years old and married 31 years to Lura E., age 44 and mother of 9 children, 7 living. The children at home: Sudie, 17; Blain, 14; and Mitchel, age 8 years.

He married Laura Evans on 29 April 1869 in LaRue County, Kentucky. He was 22, she was 14 years of age.
