Birth: 1825
Ohio County
Kentucky, USA
Death: 1875
Jasper County
Illinois, USA

William is buried next to his wife Cynthia. Year of birth & death are estimates based on census & military records. He served with the 27th KY Union Regt. Co. D for 3 years. He was discharged March 1865 @ Louisville. By 1866, William had moved his family to Jasper Co., IL.
He and wife Cynthia Norton were the parents of 6 children. All were born in Breckinridge Co., KY except for the youngest child, Olivia. She was born in Jasper Co. Their children were: Nancy, Kellogg, Wm. Jr., Ladoiska, Abigail & Olivia.

William's parents were Nathaniel Robinson Eskridge and Elizabeth Meeks. William grew up in Wayne & Jefferson Co., IL, where his father was a minister. When he came of age, he returned to his roots in KY and married Cynthia about 1850. No marriage record has been found but his oldest child Nancy Elizabeth was born abt 1851 per census records.
I could find no records at the Jasper Co. courthouse that William ever owned any land in Jasper Co. nor could I locate any kind of probate record for he or his wife.
