Hi Jennifer, I just read your post, and I am very interested in the Leonard Sides who married Chritina Lyerly.My dag's uncle Joesph Sides in Ada, OK showed me a family bible that had Richard D. Sides First County Treasurer of Carson City, Utah Terriory in 1952. I saw this in Oct. 1974 at their home in Ada, OK. I moved to Carson City, NV in Nov of 1974. When I visited the State Archives, I spoke to Guy Rocha the archivist, and he said that Richard D. Sides lived in the area, and since I saw his name in the family bible, there had to be a connection. In a couple of the census records for Carson City, show R.D. Sides living with Leonard, Christina, a son named William and 2 daughters. It seems to me that Richard was listed as a son also. Born in NC in 1825. ANYWAY, Richard died around 1902 or 03, and I cannot find a death certificate or where he is buried here in Nevada. He died at John Winters big ranch in Washoe Valley, NV just north of Carson City. If you know anything about him please let me know. He did live in Union Co Il, and came out with Marinda Burdick, a morman and they were married in Virginia City, NV. On her family side was Penrods also. Thank you for any info you might have.
