Hi- I am trying to find information on my great great grandmothers side. She was Lucinda Redding/Reding. She married Albert Barnes. Her parents were from Virginia, from what her census record shows. And this is her obit:

The Acorn Dec 18, 1919 P.6 Mrs. Lucinda Barnes Passes Away On Sunday evening, December 13, Mrs. Lucinda Barnes, known to everyone as "Grandma Barnes" because of her kind, motherly ways, quietly passed to her heavenly reward. Mrs. Barnes was one of the pioneers who faced the hardships of this country, having lived in this vicinity the past fifty years. She had been in poor health and suffered much the last few years, but without complaint. She was always cheerful and happy. For about thirty-five years Mrs. Barnes has been a faithful member of the Free Methodist Church of Three Oaks. Lucinda REDDING was born to Mr. and Mrs. James REDDING on November 5, 1841 at Dayton, Michgian. During her early life she came to this vicinity where she continued to reside until her death. She was married in December, 1861 to Mr. Albert Barnes. To this union eight children were born, two of whom survive her, Charles Barnes and Mrs. Nellie BROW of Three Oaks. The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Free Mehodist Church, Rev. William ATTEBERRY officiating. Interment was made at Forest Lawn cemetery.
Anyone that maybe be able to help me, please write. He father (if its the right Redding) help run a saw mill. Thank you Linda
