Hello Monroe!
It is so nice to hear from you. I guess we are cousins!
When I posted to my last message I didn't have all the
information correct. Let me correct it and you will see
that we are cousins.

My grandmother was Sarah Alice Risdon. She was born
10-28-1896 in Cloud County, Kansas. Her father
was John E. Risdon (not James) b.1868 in Kansas.
Her mother was Emily Elizabeth Moonich b. 1872 in
Kansas. John and Emily were married in 1894 in
Concordia, Kansas. Grandma had these siblings.
1. Earl Risdon
2. Helen Irene Risdon
3. Elizabeth Risdon
4. Esther Risdon
5. Ora C. Risdon
6. Lawrence Ambrose Risdon
7. Ira Risdon

I know there was an Oliver Risdon in the family and
these family members were photographers. They did
live in Clifton, AZ. My grandmother Alice they called
her instead of Sarah had a son that was born in Clifton
AZ. and she named him Clifton Lee. My grandmother married
Alton Roy Brady and had seven children. Clifton was one
of them. I think I have a picture of Oliver....I have
some young pictures of the family that were taken at the
family studio... If you don't mind I would love to
exchange information with you. I'll be waiting to hear
from you!

Your cousin,
