Jesse Fridley

M, #5245, b. circa 1825, d. between 1861 and 1865
FatherCharles Fridley b. circa 1785, d. before 1832
MotherMargaret 'Peggy' Armentrout b. circa 1788, d. Jun 1873
Birth*circa 1825 Jesse was born at Rockingham Co, VA, circa 1825. 1850 census age 25; 1860 census age 35.1 
 He was the son of Charles Fridley and Margaret 'Peggy' Armentrout
Marriage*25 Oct 1843 He married Julia Ann Persinger at Alleghany Co, VA, on 25 Oct 1843.2,3 
Employment*Jul 1850 Occupation: laborer in Jul 1850 at District 1, Alleghany Co, VA.1 
Census*25 Jul 1850 Jesse Fridley and Julia Ann Persinger appeared on the census as head of household at District 1, Alleghany Co, VA, on 25 Jul 1850.1 
EmploymentAug 1860 Occupation: farmer in Aug 1860 at Alleghany Co, VA.1 
Census11 Aug 1860 Jesse Fridley and Julia Ann Persinger appeared on the census as head of household at Alleghany Co, VA, on 11 Aug 1860.1 
Death*between 1861 and 1865 Jesse died between 1861 and 1865 at Civil War. There is no record of Jesse's death or of his service in the Civil War. According to the pension application of Jesse's widow Julia Ann Fridley in 1888, Jesse served in the Virginia Militia. In answer to the question of when and where Jesse died, Julia answered "Died at his home in Alleghany County having been brought home sick from the White Sulphur Springs where he had been taken (from Camp Buckner) for medical treatment. Cause of death disease of the lungs [unclear word] from exposure at camp."
From this passage it is clear that Jesse died during the War, as Camp Buckner was a Confederate recruitment camp in Greenbrier Co (now WV) and did not exist beyond the period of the War.
A number of researchers have put Jesse's date of death as 1888 given the date of the pension application, but 1888 was when the first law was passed in Virginia establishing pensions for war widows, and Julia could not have applied any sooner. Given that Jesse has not been found in the 1870 or 1880 censuses, the latter date for his death is certainly in error.4
