Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 378, Big Creek Township, White County, Indiana

"ENOCH H. CLARRIDGE was born in Madison County, Ohio, and is one of the eleven children born to WILLIAM and DRUSILLA (TIMMONS) CLARRIDGE, natives of the same State. WILLIAM CLARRIDGE was reared a farmer, but became a carpenter and brick-mason, to which he devoted his entire attention in his later years. In 1873, he came to this State, and settled in Pulaski County, where he died January 4, 1878. ENOCH H. CLARRIDGE began blacksmithing at the age of twelve, with his brothers and others, and he has followed the trade most of the time ever since, with the exception of four years spent at harness-making. In March, 1864, he enlisted in Company C, Fortieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and served until the close of the war, being mustered out at Victoria, Texas, in November, 1865. He took part in most of the battles of the Atlanta campaign, and in the fights at Franklin and Nashville. On his return, he worked at saw-milling and farming for about four years, and then resumed blacksmithing. In November, 1873, he moved to Pulaski County, Indiana, and in 1880 came to Chalmers, this township, and has ever since been doing a good trade. He was married, February 28, 1869, to MARY A. CHENOWETH, a native of Ohio, who died July 6, 1872, a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and mother of two children, one only now living - DELVER S. July 12, 1874, MR. CLARRIDGE married CAROLINE N. O'BRIEN, a native of Ohio, who has borne him one daughter - ROSALIE. MR. CLARRIDGE is a member of Star City Lodge, No. 444, I.O.O.F., and in politics is a Democrat."
