Since Robert was a doctor I tried looking for him on Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Bledsoe, Robert Berry and there are two matches. (He's listed as Berry on 1880 census.) One even has cause of death for their father. I would contact those posters see where they found first and middle name for B.B., cause of death etc. Share what you know on your branch. Maybe something will work out for y'all.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
