I  have some bits and pieces on William Pridgen in Jasper Co. Ga that I
picked up trying to connect Nathaniel Waller Pridgeon to this family. I
never was able to get this family straight and how they were all kin.  In
the 1807 Land Lottery William Pridgeon's Orphans ddrew land in Baldwin Co.
while living in Bullock.
In 1821 a William Pridgeon living in Jasper co. drew land in this lottery.
James Pridgeon of JJasper co. drew land in Monroe co. in 1821.
William Pridgeon was a tax defalter in Monroe Co. in 1834.

A deed stated that James sold land in Jasper co. in what was once Baldwin
co.
In 1831 Butts  co. Tax. a William/James/Matthew were on this tax list.

>From the 1820 Census of Jasper co it would appear this James was the
father
of William and Matthew.
Is this the William you are writing of.
