My great-great-grandmother Lydia Bell was born on this day in 1851 in Jefferson County, Ohio. She married John Thompson on September 23, 1872. Together they had 11 children, 9 of whom have been found.
I have no photographs of Lydia, no stories, no ancedotes, no memories shared by others to help me piece together an image or life story of Lydia. I wish I did. Is it possible that I'll find another descendant who's grandmother shared memories of her? One can always hope.
Happy Birthday, Gramma Lydia.
