From “Virginia and Virginians, 1606-1888,” published by H.H. Hardesty, we find this entry for James S. Aldredge, who resided at Logan Court House in Logan County, West Virginia:

Late Logan county surveyor, residing at Logan Court House, W.Va., was born in Floyd county, Va., Jan. 26, 1859; was married in Logan county, W.Va., on Mar. 16, 1879, to Miss Alice B. Perry, who was born in Logan county Aug. 14, 1855; their home has been brightened by the following sons and daughters, all now residing with their mother: Stanton and George L., born Feb 10, 1880; Cora B., born Jan. 31, 1882; Thomas E., born June 21, 1884; James C., born Jan. 2, 1887. Mr. J.S. Aldredge was elected surveyor of Logan county in 1884, which office he filled most acceptably until his death, Aug. 4, 1887. This sad occurrence was deeply lamented by all who had known him. He was a man of the highest nobility of character, and though cut down in the prime of his young manhood, yet had done much to endear him to many friends who regret his untimely death. His widow and children reside in the beautiful home he had made for them at Logan Court House, [W]Va.
