I have Ada Rizor married only twice, first to (--??--) Benedict, and second to Zedekiah “Zed” Dawson. I have been unable to find the marriage record of Ada to Benedict, which must have occurred around 1900 and lasted only a few months. Would you know her husband’s first name?
The marriage record to Zed states she was previously married once and divorced. Zed was married three times, first to Catharine “Katie” Bell Maddux/Mattox on 29 Apr 1884, secondly to Eliza Mack on 8 Jan 1893 and of course thirdly to Ada. He had two children by his first wife, Henry and Lottie May and the four boys with Ada.
I have Sidney’s Channell’s death record and account of the auto accident – do you know if he ever married? Do you know why he and Ada did not marry? Did Golda have any relationship with her father?
I know Bessie had a messy divorce from Adam Noblet in 1919 and she then married Carl B. Graham. I would be interested in any stories you may have about her. Do you know when or where she died?
I would also love a photo of Matilda. You may contact me at: mhworkman at comcast.net
