Donna, I am not understanding your e-mails pertaining Elizabeth's(#63227282)birth year and what you are trying to tell me. We went to the library at Rockport, Spencer, IN for our information in the early 1990's and read the large files. The workers were very glad to see some of the family members and helped a lot. We then went to the cemetery, which was very overgrown when we were there. I know it has cleaned up some now. We did not find Elizabeth's grave. Are you related to the Luce line?
Thank you, Vera

RE: Friends on findagrave
Friends, sure you bet. Lately I have done next to nothing in the way of picture taking. How do I look at the picture you are talking about.

I am so glad I contacted you, these Richeson's are
of my great grandparents and great aunt & uncles.

Thank you ever so much working this cemetery, a lot of my kin of both of my parents are in and around, Spencer, Warrick & Vanderburgh counties.

But this bunch has eluded me for many years :-)

Again, Thank you for all you do.

I added a lot of info to this family, I will delete most of my burial records after you add the other children and their info.

Thank you for the stones you posted, I searched for Viola for years.
