      Dear Shirley,

      I have some information you may have or not have.

      First of all here is a picture I had made for you of my father Berley Oral and Robert and Paul Richison. It was taken probably when I was maybe 10 or so. It shows my father so thin so I don't know if it helps confirm him in the 1921 group picture.

      Also I have the funeral notice from newspaper of Frank Albert. If you would like a copy I can have one made for you. The clipping is getting quite yellow but it may turn out. He died at age 81. It gives his birth date as May 17, 1862 name of parents, John Webster and Sarah Jane (Auers) Richison.
      Frank Albert was married to Sarah J. Davis, Dec. 25, 1883. Sarah J. Davis, died 1931. Children of Frank Albert & Sarah J.
      Dallas of Winchester
      William of Detroit
      Burley & Guy of Dayton
      Sylvia at home in Pennville
      One sister, Mrs. Margaret Secrest one brother Charles (both of Muncie) Funeral services for another sister, Mrs. William Beard were held in Pennville Sunday afternoon. I take this to mean, he died on Sunday she was buried. He was buried on Tuesday, Burial in Gravel Hill Cemetery.

      Have you come across the name of Thelma Blodgett? I have a letter from her, she lived at 235 So. Munson Ave. Portland, Ind. 47371 she mentions a Mable Leaply wife of Eldon Leaply who is of the Prillamon Clan. She say a book is available of the Prillamon-Richison Clan. Book available for $14.00 from Mrs. Raymond P. Miller, R R % Box 466 Martinsville, VA 24112 Post mark on my letter from Thelma is Mar. 29, 1985

      Regarding the re-union picture. On of the men should be Charles A. Richison. I have really studied this picture trying to pinpoint Carrie A. Beard sister of Frank Albert & George. I knew her, she lived just up the hill from Grandpa Richison in Pennville. When I visited him in summers I played with her granddaughter (name Becky rings a bell) She made us go to those revival meetings and Grandpa gave us ice cream money so we slipped out and got ice cream. As I remember her she was a heavy set woman, white hair, she wore it in a bun on top of her head. I have talked with my husband Dick and I would like to go to the cemetery, Gravel Hill and see if I can find these markers.

      Now I also have a copy of the last will and tesament of George A. Richison which is interesting. If you would like a copy of this I can make one for you.

      Back to the picture Nos. 22, 23, 24, 25 and 28 must be the children of either Cenith, Charles A., Carrie A. Beard or Margaret A. Secrist. Also somewhere are step-children of George A., Agnes Austin and Martha Watkins. So these names have no meaning to me except for Carrie A. Beard who I knew as Aunt "Allie." I also knew the name Secrist but could not identify her. I can't remember what info I sent you last time, happens a lot any more, those senior moments. But keep in touch. I hope there is something helpful in this info.

      Hope you had a great visit to Australia and saw your grandchild quite a distance to go visit. Fortunately we got to see our grandchildren grow up, many trips to Nashville, before they moved to Troy. But we have wonderful pictures and experiences we shared. It's great with them just down the street, but they are growing up so fast.

      Let me know either by email or letter if any of this helps. I never recieved (sic) a reply from Irma Mumma when I sent her the picture. Of course she is in her 90's and have not talked with her for a couple years. I did get a note from Glen in Ariz. He seems more confused than me about the people in the re-union picture.

      So I will close. It won't be long before we will be getting things together for Fla. Our plans are for Jan., keep you advised of where I am.

      Your cousin,
      Phyllis Woody

      You may have the picture if you wish.
      Provided by Phyllis (Richison) Woody to Shirley Richison Fields, 12 Oct 2004. Phyllis added the names to the back of the photo and said in her letter that it was taken when she was about 10 years old or about 1939.
