    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: bonkersdog Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.etheridge/662.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: There was no name change. The 1920 census was transcribed incorrectly. Harris O Etheridge was living with brother Alvin and parents Joseph Etheridge, Jr and mother Lydia [Hassell]. In 1880 Harris was listed as Harris D Etheridge.. In 1930 Harris O Etheridge was listed as married and was in the Anna State Hospital for the Insane in Anna, Union, IL. Illinois State Records lists Harris O Etheridge born 28 May 1866, IL and died 2 Jun 1931, Anna Union, IL. He was buried 4 Jun 1931 in Edwards County, IL., I found other family members buried in Edwards but not Harris. Joseph Etheridge, Sr., and Eliza Bridger were married 5 Jul 1829 in Billingshurst, Sussex, England. Joseph is not the son of James and Jenny as their son Joseph was baptized 20 Apr 1804 in Bolney, Sussex while your Joseph wasn't born until 14 Jun 1804. I did find a posting that Eliza was daughter of William Bridger and Rhoda Smart married 7 Oct 1793, Wisborough, Sussex. I found no proof these are Eliza's parents. Hope this helps.
