In Reply to: Re: Louvina (RIDDLE) BRADLEY by Barbara Grimm Barlow of 873

Yes, I am still looking for info on this family. It is my husband's line and we've been stuck for almost fifteen years on it.

From what you have provided, I am certain this is the same family. I got the name "Liddie" from a death certificate of Louvina's death, and figured it was a nickname, but never considered Mathilda, but it fits. Louvina married George Lewis Bradley and had the following children: John D., David T., Woodard A., George W., James Henry (my husband's grandfather). I'm not certain of that birth order, but these are the children I know about. Louvina is buried in Carter County KY in Hall Cemetery and I've been to her gravesite, so I know it's there. I also have a photo of Louvina if you do not have one or would like a scan of mine.

Currently, I am using computers with no way to import a gedcom of this family, but if you could give me an ancestor and descendant list from yours I'd be most appreciative. I can give you what he has (but it's mostly speculation at this point). Perhaps we can clear up some of it together? We've been wondering for years how George Lewis and Louvina got together with her in NC, but George is from the environs of Greenup County (and so is my hubby), so that also makes sense, though why we've never found them there is beyond me. Maybe a look with the spelling of Lyttle will help since he probably only looked with LITTLE.

This is exciting and I look forward to corresponding with you and hearing how you fit into this puzzle.
