John Eldredge was born on 7 Apr 1774 at Ashford, Connecticut to parents Daniel Eldredge and Prudence Warner; the source of the 7 Apr 1774 birth date is unknown, but a baptism record shows that on 5 Jun 1774, so it makes sense, although unsourced. In 1818 in Cayuga County, New York, John married Polly Alcott. John died on 11 Sep 1844 in Marion, Madison, Ohio, and was buried on 12 Sep 1844 in Marion, Madison, Ohio.

NOTE: Previously in this record it showed a 1795 birth at Aurelius, Auburn, Cayuga County, New York, and this might be for a subsequent son of one of his brother or his father Daniel and was mixed accidentally. Before John's removal to Ohio, he probably spent time around his father in Cayuga County.
