BALDRIDGE, DICKEY - I am searching for the grave site of my great(3)-grandfather, Francis Marion BALDRIDGE, who died in Clinton Co., IL, on 11 October 1847. He was born on3August 1785 in Orange Co., NC, to Daniel BALDRIDGE and wife of yet unknown name. He married Frances DICKEY on 21 November 1811 in Rutherford Co., TN. In the 1840s, the family moved from middle Tennessee to Clinton Co., IL, where Francis' older brother, Robert BALDRIDGE, already lived. Robert's wife was Elizabeth DICKEY, sister of Frances(DICKEY)BALDRIDGE. Robert and Elizabeth (DICKEY) BALDRIDGE are thought to be buried in a small unchartered family cemetery near Pierron in southwestern Bond Co., IL. Hence, Francis Marion BALDRIDGE might well be buried somewhere in northwestern Clinton Co. or just over the line in adjacent Bond Co. The widow, Frances (DICKEY) BALDRIDGE, later moved to Benton Co., AR, where she had received bounty land for Francis' military service in the War of1812. She died there on 29 October 1874 and is buried in Wardlaw Cemetery near Pea Ridge, AR.
