Hi everyone, I do believe we are all related. My maiden name was Sandra (Sandy) Darlene Sides. I was born in Granite City, Il May 11, 1934. My father was William Erwin Sides, born in Marmaduke. His father was John Albert Sides, and I believe his father was William R. Sides. I remember Uncle Denver very well. He was a sweet uncle. I have many photos if Hilliard and family, and a lot of obits, etc. My father's Uncle Joseph Sides, in Ada OK, they had a family bible that I saw in Oct. 1974. Inside the bible was written R.D. Sides, 1st County treasure of Carson City, Utah Territory, 1852. Our Archivist here in Carson City, NV told me when a name is written inside a family bible, it definately is some relation. We moved to Carson City in Nov 1974. Richard D. aka R.D. Sides came to Nevada in the early 1850's. I am having a hard time connecting to our family. His father was a Leonard Sides, from North Carolina. There were several Leonard's, but in the 1800's census of Nevada, he is listed with his wife the former Christia Lyerly, from Illinois. I may never find the connection, but being the TAURUS that I am I will not give up!!! ha ha SOoo, if anyone out there has any idea about the elusive Richard D. Sides, please let me know. I believe he died at the John D. Winters Ranch, in 1902 or03, in Washoe County. I cannot find a death certicate or where he is buried. In the census he is listed living with Leonard, Chritina, William, son of Leonard and 2 daughters. I think R.D. was also listed as a son. R.d. married a Marinda Burdick who was a Morman, from Union city or co of Il. They were married in Virginia City. NV. THanks for any info you all might have. I still not find that bible of Uncle Joe's in Ada, OK. His children have no idea what happened to it.
