RE: fag 31000863

I will certainly check out the resources you have given me.
I think you probably have the answer to John Duff.
I wonder if perhaps his biological father was named Duff.

The only person who ever said to me that John Duff was illegitimate was the daughter of Ilene (Rickard) & Arthur Daugherty (Ann Daugherty Miller)Ann was the granddaugher of Willoughby "Litt" & Roberta Davis Rickard.

In the 1880 Bremen, Muhlenberg Co., Ky census, George and Jinney (Virginia Johnson) Rickard had a 13 years old nephew named McDuffa in their hhold. I wonder if it was John Duff Rickard.

In my records I have John Duff as the brother of George W. Rickard, as sons of Matthew & Martha Lucinda Kittinger . I recorded it that way because of the info on John Duff's death certificate.

Hi Bill

I agree Mary Ann's name was not DUFF. I think the author of the memorial got that wrong and now the author, Delores, can no longer be contacted through Find A Grave.

I think maybe you and I talked about John Duff Rickard and Martha Ellen Rickard before.

I always thought she was a Rickard by birth,and her death certificate lists Jacob Rickard and Dorthy Ann Mauzy/Magee as parents . Dorthy's last name is difficult to make out. This info was given by her son, Willoughby "Litt" Rickard. I guess he would know.

I can't decide if I think Matthew (father of John Duff)? and Jacob (father of Martha Ellen) were brothers. I guess it doesn't make a great deal of difference. I do know the history for sure of Martha & John & their descendents.

Do you have any info on the above John Duff Rickard. I have heard from family members that perhaps he was not the son of Matthew & Martha Rickard.

On memorial 94294721 Mary Ann Rickard Miller the author of memorial has referred to her as "Duff" being the maiden name.
I have written to Delores about the memorial, but have not heard back.

I hope I have it right now. If Permelia died from complications of Olivers birth, why did she die in 1876? Never mine, just make sure I have it right.

my bio pic
Honestly my bio pic is something I found several years ago when I started here on find a grave. I don't know much about it. However if I had the chance to plan my own gravestone I would like to have something like it.

Maybe a little of both. I preach at my family members all the time about the consequences of smoking, they ignore me or get mad. Marsha

I was wondering if he died from agent orange or another service related illness. Here where I live we have had almost every Vietnam Soldier has been afflicted with service related illnesses. Some have died already. I was a teenager when the war was going on so I remember that era well.

Maude Milsaps English
You asked to use her picture she is mother to a very special lady that I know I call her mom. Not by birth but when I lost mine at the age of 27, she has become mine for I needed someone her name is Rozella Virginia Reddell the little girl in the second pic of Maude with her children. I don't think mom would mind at all for you to have her mother's pic just please when you post it would you mind to post the caption following with the photo. (This photo is from the personal collection of Virgina Reddell Marsh who is daughter of Maude) Thank you for asking.

RE: Matthew Rickard Family
You sure can. In fact this morning I got a link to an article about Lamanda Park, CA that I had sent the pictures to the man writing it. He used Mathew Ricaard's Saloon picture in it. I'll forward the link to you.
