Many clues lead me to feel this woman is the sister of Samuel and Nathaniel Oldridge. The families are frequently found living in the same communities. Nathaniel Oldridge's son, Marcus married the daughter of Margaret Oldridge and Robert Galloway. The elderly Galloway couple is found living in the home of their daughter and son-in-law on the 1850 census. However, by 1860 the elderly couple is no longer found on the census. We know Marcus Oldridge died in August 1860 and I have not found Elmira Oldridge listed in the census. In 1860 their two oldest sons are living with Elmira's brother, John W. Galloway. Elmira may have remarried, but I have not found that as yet. Also, she too may be deceased by 1860. The twins born in 1856 have not been found listed on the census either.
