Eskridge KS Obituaries and Death Notices

Walker: Take time to learn about your heritage - Wyoming Tribune

Monday, June 27, 2016

When I was admitted to practice law in Wyoming, I presumed that I was the first person to become a lawyer on both my mother and father’s side of the family.My mother’s maiden name is “Eskridge,” and she is a direct descendant of a fellow named George Eskridge. A few years ago, I did some internet research on George Eskridge, and I discovered that he was born in England on Sept. 30, 1665, and that he died in Virginia on Nov. 25, 1735.I also learned that George Eskridge was a young law student in Wales when he was shanghaied and taken to the colony of Virginia, where he was sold to a planter. His only possessions were the clothes on his back and the law book that he had been studying. His term of service to the planter was set at eight years. After completing his involuntary indentured servitude, George returned (with his law book) to England to complete his legal studies. After being admitted to the bar, he returned to Virginia, where his obituary states that he “was a successful lawyer.”George later married Rebecca Bonum, and they had three children (William, George Jr. and Samuel). George was also the loving and conscientious guardian of a young girl named Mary Ball. Mary’s father died when she was 3 years old, and her mother died when she was 13 years old. George’s obituary states that Mary “spent most of her younger years in the home of the Eskridge family.”You have probably never heard of George Eskridge, but I suspect that you have heard of his namesake. On March 6, 1730, Mary Ball married Augustine Washington, and she named her firstborn son after her dear friend and guardian. George Washington, the revolutionary war hero and first president of the United States of America was named after George Eskridge. Genealogy is quite an adventure!If you have the interest, time and a computer, please begin now to investigate your lineage. I have read that approximately 10 to 12 percent of the present population of the United States can trace their DNA back to the passengers on the Mayflower.Please know that if one of your ancestors turns out to be a prince, pauper or pirate, such history does not define who you are. That being said, the person that you are now or may hereafter become could indeed play a role in shaping and defining your descendants’ character. Live the kind of life you know will make your descendants proud.
