Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Bill Ridge and I am researching the various lines of my family history (Ridge, Biles, Forepaugh, and Lownie with associated families). I am not on Find A Grave to see how many memorials I can generate. Rather, I would like to pay tribute to some of those who came before me.

I enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers requested through Findagrave. On occasion, I may also photograph markers near the ones that are requested and I may create a memorial for that grave if one does not already exist.

You have my permission to use my FAG photographs in order to document your own family history.

Please ask for a transfer (or provide data through the Edit screen) if I "own" a memorial that pertains to a relative of yours. I have created those memorials so that interested parties may find information about members of their family.

RE: Wilson or Hodgson?
Strange. That would be a stretch of an error though! :)

RE: Harriet Ridge
The Hogdson name IS on the Death Certificates of some of her children. And, she did have a son, named William Hodgson Ridge. I am guessing she married a Hogdson at some point, or maybe it was a family name that she used as her middle name?

I found a Quaker record for s report of the Byberry Month;y Meeting at the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting for "Dr. W. Hodson Ridge". It said he was part of a committee of persons who were selected to nominate trustees. It was dated 24 Dec 1916. His Death Certificate says he was a veterinarian.

Van Beil study
I am not related to the Van Beils but would like to use the grave marker pictures in an article for a magazine. The Van Beils were one of the largest liquor & cigar importers in Philadelphia 1860 to 1890's
Thank You,
David Jackson
