     Here is a correction, Johnston Co. Heritage book.
     From the book Johnston County Heritage:

Elizabeth BRYAN married Samuel ELDRIDGE possibly of  Sampson County.   Samuel ELDRIDGE made 
his will 1 March 1778 and it was probated in May 1778. He named wife Elizabeth, son-in-law David LEE
(wife was possibly Anna), son-in-law Abner INGRAM, son Samuel, and daughter Mildred ELDRIDGE.

Sheila, your info is very interesting and I'm sure it relates to my Samuel Eldridge someway but
I don't quite know how at this time. Sorry I can't help you with Troy and Susanna but will let
you know if I find anything on them. Another record you should see--the Wm. Spencer Eldridge
Family Bible, pg 55 of Fam Bible Records [in Johnston Co NC] Vol I&II by Liz Ross. WS Eldridge
b.29 Aug 1838 JoCo; m. Nancy Wood 4 Jan 1870 (wid/o Harry Lee who d. CSA), Nancy b. 5 May
1842, d/o Whitfield Wood. Bible lists 2 children by Harry and 6 (b. 1870-1882) by WS. Then it lists
Elizabeth Eldridge (21 Oct 1814 SampCo-Feb 1862) and Samuel Eldridge (d. 17 Mar 1772) [Possibly
his parents?] and Young Eldridge (1809 JoCo-17 Dec 1882). What do you make of this Samuel?

Dear Friend:   Please excuse if I have written you before.  At my age I can't remember who I
have corresponded with, especially if just a casual inquiry.  Do you happen to know anything
about a SAMUEL ELDRIDGE of Johnston County, N. C.?

He died there about 1778.

His wife was ELIZABETH UNKNOWN, they had the following children:

Martha who married "Long David" Lee (<note:prob not correct) Elizabeth who married Abner
Ingram Samuel who married Delany Lassity Mildred who married Nathaniel Thornton Anna who
married "Short David" Lee.

As asked earlier, if this is a duplicate inquiry, feel free to discard it.

Gratefully

Elizabeth Bryan was the daughter of Lewis Bryan
SOURCE:"The Heritage of Johnston County, NC," 1985,1985, Article 157. 

"Bryans of Mill Creek", pp 161-162. This Article, by Elizabeth Ross, cites the Nuncupative Will of Lewis's
father, John of Craven Co., NC, and also cites a law suit in 1826 for the settlement of John Bryan's estate.

There is something wrong with this genealogy link for Elizabeth. There was a Samuel Eldridge that
did marry Elizabeth Bryan as listed in  "Marriages of  Johnston Co., North Carolina 1762-1868" But
could this Elizabeth Bryan not be the correct one? It appears from the IGI that Elizabeth was born
in 1766.
Samuel's daughter Mildred Eldridge was born in 1753. Elizabeth would be younger than her own
daughter. Mildred's husband Nathaniel Thornton was born 1746. Samuel's sister Martha was born
between 1693

and 1709 according to the Samuel Eldridge 1709 will. The IGI gives a birth date for Samuel as 1738
If that is true then we have another problem. His father died in 1709.
