Im a very active person that enjoys making people happy. I lost my youngest dauther Erica M Lewis.She is on this sight Some one taken photo of her grave and you know it really took me for a suprise.That some one done something for my baby. And Im sure that no person wants to before gotten So Im trying to help the people out by adding names to this sight. It really makes a mother or the survivors of people feel
like some people do care. Im new at this but Iwant to do more very soon for both the living and the loveones passed on.

I understand, cousin.

I wish I knew how to send you the information from my Family Tree Maker program.

Give me 10 minutes, and I'll send you Elgar C. Bidwell and Myrtle's children's info.

RE: Collette's Great Grandmother
Patty, Isabel, & Collette:

Armilda Belle Richeson 1854-1918 is my Great Grandmother, also. Her grave marker denotes the above spelling.

My Great Grandfather William Lutrell Bidwell married Armilda on 6/1/1873 in Logan Co., Ohio.

Do you need more information concerning the Bidwell's, or are you trying to find out more about the Richeson's?

Collette's Great Grandmother

You did not specify who your Great Grandmother was.

Most of the photos I've put on Find A Grave have been relatives, but not all.

What was her name?

RE: Thank you
You are very welcome Collette. I see tomorrow is the anniversary of Erica's death. Your family will be in my prayers. I can't think of anything worse then losing a child. God Bless. Carol

Pearl Cemetery
Thank you for the directions given for the sites in the Pearl Cemetery. It made our search a little easier even though there is another driveway beyond what was once the last one. For any ones direction off of CR 25A: go to the flagpole which is in the center of the cemetery and turn directly right. You will find the Cotterman stone on the left and the babies are located across the driveway about three rows in with flat stones. I was able to take all of the mold off of Roberta's stone for a better picture. We enjoyed the outing on a nice day. Tried to send extra pictures directly to you to help you with your project. You need to empty some of your email yo make room for them.
