Emmett Kadwell provided the following information about his grandmother, Electa A. Richardson:

Jessie Kate (Blood) Richardson was born November 15, 1975 in Pinora Township, near Chase Michigan. She is the daughter of Zachary and Electa Blood. She died July 16, 1933 at 57 years of age. She married Justius Richardson in Reed City, MI on September 24, 1891. She had four children: Dolly who died in infancy, Henry, Guy, and Electa. Electa was my grandmother, and Jessie my great grandmother. I have a copy of the obit from the Osceloa County Herald. Hope this is helpful.

Emmett H. Kadwell Jr

Thanks Emmett. It gives me more information than I had before. Would you be able to provide that obit copy so I can add it to her record? Do you have any pictures that you would be willing to share?

Also, just to clarify on the dates, should the date be November 15, 1875 instead of 1975 for Jessie Blood?

I forgot to close comments on the post so we would only post replies in the forum.  So here's Emmett's reply:

i have scanned two different copies of Jessie Blood Richardson’s obit, just not sure where to send it. I have a lot of information about the Blood family. A cousin Doris Ward (now 90 yrs of age) has researched the family line back to the 1600s

Emmett:

Does your cousin have your family line computerized or is it all paper?  I'd be happy to do the work.  I would need your families permission if you wanted it posted on the site.  Just let me know.

Also can you clarify the birthdate of Jessie Blood?

Thanks!  I'll be sure to post the obits on the site as well as the genealogy.

If you'd like to add more information to the site, please let me know.  I hope cousin Doris has her work digital.  If you need help with it, I'd be more than happy to help.

Hope the New Year finds you well!

Finally updating all my records and I have a couple questions that I hope you can answer.

Jessie's husband has a few different names from different sources ie Justin, Justice, and the one you provided Justius.  Which one is correct?  Do you also have a copy of their birth and/or marriage certificates?  His obituary?  Would you be able to provide me with his information ie birthdate and place as well as deathdate?

Would you be able to send me the important information on Jessie's children such as dates and places?

HI Bernard,

I will have to talk to one of my aunts about the correct spelling of my great grandfathers name.  I am sure I can give you information about Jessie and Justin's children documented by obituaries.  If I can find any marriage certificates or birth/death certificates I will pass them on as well.  I had noticed the different spellings of Justin's name and really wasn't sure which one was correct.  I will get back with you.

Thanks Emmett for the information. The database will reflect the changes you've provided by the weekend. Let me know if there's anything else I can do.

Hi...my Martin family married into the Blood family. They ended up in Polk county, Iowa, via Lewis Phillip Blood, son of Nathan H. Blood and his wife Harriet Purse Leason.

I'm pretty sure the Blood family mentioned here in this post is related to 'my' Blood family, however, I don't have them in my database. I do have a Ruth Electa Blood, daughter of Ira Nathan Blood (son of Lewis Phillip Blood) and his wife Manchia Miller. The name Electa caught my eye.

Anyone know of the connection?

Hopefully Emmett can give you a lead.  I'll send him an email so he can check back in with you.

Thanks for stopping by!  Smile

I have not been back to the site for some time.  I notice the post about Bloods in Iowa.  At this point I am unable to make a direct connection with the Bloods in Chase, Michigan.  But, the Blood family migrated from Eastern USA and those in Iowa may be related but I am unaware of any connection. 

Recently I was given old family pictures of the Blood and  Kuhn family. I don't know if you have an interest in this kind of material
