Biographical or historical data
Rolfe Eldridge was born about 1780 in Buckingham County, Virginia. His father, Rolfe Eldridge, brought him to work in the Buckingham County court when he was 15. In 1797, he qualified as deputy clerk for the county. In 1806, he replaced his father as clerk of the county court. Under the state constitution of 1851, clerks were required to stand for election to their positions, and Eldridge won his race easily. He declined to run in 1858 and was replaced by his son-in-law. Eldridge married Mary Moseley (d. 1867), and they had 8 children. He died 13 May 1861.
