Birth: 1857
New York, USA
Death: May 24, 1927
Richland County
Illinois, USA

Daughter of Horace and Elizabeth (Nichols) Perkins of New York city. Married to Robert Ridgway on October 12, 1875 upon turning 18 (info courtesy of Wikipedia entry for her husband).

Julia and her husband were privileged to spend 52 years together. She died two years before him. She wished to be cremated. "So alone, I scattered her ashes at the site of the little cottage where she and I together passed some of our happiest and most carefree days. The azaleas were blooming in the garden."--Dr. Robert Ridgway.
