I have a brick wall that perhaps someone out there can help me with. In the 1900 Pocahontas Co. census there is a Belle Rider, age 35, widowed with children: George, Rufus, Bertha, Margaret, and Minnie. I learned that Belle was formerly Belle Smith and that her deceased husband was George Rider. Now comes the brick wall. In the 1910 Pocahontas Co. census, Belle shows up as Belle Coulter. Still widowed but I don't know her her late Coulter husband was. I suspect that it may have been Robert A. Coulter of that area but I don't have any death records for either Robert or his first wife, Sabrina White. Does anyone have any info on these families?
