Dear Sarah,

You do not name Everett Wade Bedinger's second wife, your great grandmother. Was she Anna Moore Bilmyer (1845-1917)? I am descended from EWB's first wife, Sally E. Lucas and have not yet followed the line from the second wife. EWB's father was BF Bedinger, but BFB's father was George Michael, not Washington, Bedinger. You also do not mention your father's name.

Here's what Danske Dandridge says in George Michael Bedinger: A Kentucky Pioneer. This is a fairly authoritative family history published in 1909 when many of the informants were still alive:

Dr. Everett Bedinger married, second, Anna Moore Bilmyre, of Shepherdstown, and they have six children: Myra Van Doren, Anna Moore, Katherine Conrad, Olivia Morgan, Henry Garrett, and John Van Doren. Almost all of his fourteen children [by both wives] are living, and he himself, a hale old man of eighty, is still in good health at his home in Anchorage, Ky. He is the only living grandchild of G.M. Bedinger.(page 223)

I assume you are descended from Anna, Katherine or Olivia.

I recently, sadly, visited the Richwood Presbyterian Church in January 2003 for the funeral of my uncle, Stevenson Brooke Ranson. I took digital photographs of many of the grave stones there, including of Anna Moore Bilmyre Bedinger, and would be happy to send you jpegs of those that I have relevant to you.
