Louisa Sheetz 144455268
Yes, I believe you are right. Louisa Sheetz has a sister Ellen living with her and her husband in 1900. Watson and Emily Miller do not seem to have had a daughter named Ellen. I have removed the request. Thanks for checking that!

RE: Charles William Bonfield 81667354
No problem at all. I appreciate being notified if I enter something that is not correct and being able to fix it. His son, Ed Bonfield was married to my mom and I'm still trying to figure out the exact timeline between Elizabeth Peel, Alice Turner then Elizabeth once again.

I tried to send you this through the "Edit" tab, but it doesn't seem to be able to find you - says I'm trying to send to an unknown entity . . .go figure. Anyway, I found the wedding announcement for James and Gertrude Smith in the same Evening Star of 11/15/16. I am sending it along as well.

Simon Sanborn #165913655
I have found a wonderful biography for Simon and Anna Sanborn in honor of the celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary. It was published in the Evening Star (Washington D.C.) on 11/15/16. It contains very interesting information about the couple. I thought you might like to see it. It also has some wonderful pictures.

RE: Mabel Rider 140569918
The information I have is passed down from my maternal grandmother Grace Rider Barber. Her grandmother was Marion English Rider and I possess her family bible and others as well. It is written in the bible where Agnes Perks was from and where she and Lindsey Wharton Rider married in 1902. Granted, it is possibly wrong but on every occasion I can think of it has turned out to be correct. For instance Lindsey Wharton Rider's middle name given to him at birth was Lindsey Ernest Rider, written in the family bible under births and then a change is noted immediately below it signed by his mother saying "changed to Lindsey Wharton Rider at 2 years of age". What I don't have is information on Agnes Marion Rider, born 10 March, 1903 at Brooklyn, New York. I have information that she lived in New York City as an adult but nothing concerning marriage and her passing information. I've also had problems finding information on my maternal grandmother's grandfather James Willard Rider. I have their short wedding announcement from the Carrollton, Illinois newspaper stating that J.W. Rider enlisted for duty in the civil war at St. Louis, Missouri but no info on which side. Marion's first husband was a Confederate Colonel at the time of his death. There is a J.W. Rider listed with the Confederate Guerilla group called Quantrill's Raiders but unknown if it is the same person. Also James Rider and wife Marion went back east while Marion was pregnant with her 2nd child she had in Troy, New York and named Bertha Jennie Rider (who married Pearl Sanford Barber in K.C. MO.) Records indicate that there was a Theodore Rider living in Troy, New York who may or may not have been James Willard Rider's brother. Theodore Rider hails from the Rider family of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. Anyway, if you have further questions that I may have answer to feel free to query me.
