In Reply to: Re: Looking for Lucy Rideout - England B188? by John Keresey of 536

My great great grandmother was Lucy Ann Rideout, born in London, England ca 1865. She and two brothers came through Canada to U. S.after the death of their father (we think her mother could not support a large family, and other children stayed in London with the mother). Brothers settled around Detroit, one may have been John. Lucy worked for the Vanderbilts in North Carolina at the Biltmore estate as a maid. She married Eli Henry Potter and they had nine children, all of whom reached adult hood and married. My granny was Lucy's middle (5th) child, named Aurora Mace Potter. She married Waid Allan Jones, they had three children. Our family is looking for any info on Lucy Ann Rideout. Her father may have been of French origin.
