RE: Bivins
Hi Patsy,

Thanks for the prompt; I've seen that page before. I've been working on Nathaniel Bivens Sr. and his wife for a number of years. The problem with pages like that is they're based on other pages without providing any documentation. Little is known about Nathaniel and Peggy. The page says they moved to Anson, NC from Pennsylvania during the Revolution. Problems with that include that all their children before the supposed move were born in NC and there's no documentation so far that shows them ever living in PA.

My email is You can view my family tree at

RE: Reply

My family tree is public, on, titled The Bivins Family. I've only found the listings on ancestry, and I don't have any primary records.

Sarah Elizabeth Bivens Weston is my 2nd cousin 4 times removed, but other than Franklin's name I don't yet have any more information about him.

Hi Patsy,

I see in your Bivens virtual cemetery that Robert N. Bivens is your 2nd great grand uncle. That means his father, Nathaniel Bivens Jr. is your 3rd great grandfather. His brother John is my 4th great grandfather, which I think makes us 5th cousins once removed. I also have Fickes in my tree, the most recent being Rebecca Fickes Wentz (1740-82), my 4th great grandmother.

RE: Great Great Aunt Edna Duhigg Gard
Hi Patsy, my name is Larry Black and Edna was my wife Melva's grandmother. My wife passed away last year and her 2 sisters do not want me to relinquish her site to anyone. You can put up any family history and link to it on the site that you wish. I have the picture that you are speaking of and that is the only picture of her that was in existence that we could find. I will be glad to help you in any way I can. Thank You! Larry Black, Belton, Mo.

Amos Betchel photo request
I have taken photos of Amos Betchel's stone at Pleasant Hill. The stone has toppled off its base and 'was' lying embedded in the ground. It apparently has been that way for a while. I rolled the stone over on its side to make sure that it was Amos' stone.

I can post my photos on his memorial, but it will not be a good representation of what his stone really looks like. I was able to roll the stone over, but it was much too heavy for me to pick up by myself and place it back on its base.

Someone who oversees the cemetery should be able to do this, but it would need to be reported. I'm not sure who is in charge of Pleasant Hill. I am waiting for the courthouse in Harrison county to get back to me. Hopefully they can furnish a name of the caretaker for the cemetery.

Please let me know if you still want me to post the photos.

RE: John Reisdorff
I can only find him on the 1870 and 1880 census records living in Kansas with his wife and children. There is a Johann Reisdorff who departed Antwerp, Belgium aboard the ship "David Hoadley" and arrived in New York City on April 17, 1856. His age is listed as either 23 or 28 (hard to read) and it appears he traveled by himself (there were no other Reisdorffs listed with him). He is possibly your relative.

Also, I found a record of a Johann Reisdorf born May 21, 1834 in Bergheim Erft, Rheinland, Prussia, with parents listed as Christian Reisdorf and Catharina Ramen. I can't verify if he is the same person as your relative, but it's worth checking.

RE: John Reisdorff
Someone probably sent me a correction at one time. I just checked and on the 1880 census John, his wife, and five children were living in Mound Valley, Labette, Kansas, and the census states that John was born in Luxembourg, as were his parents.
