This is Grandmother Ridge, Caroline Elizabeth Ridge – Jane Bucks’ mother. She looks a bit like she doesn’t trust the photographer. I did find a Caroline Ridge, married to James Ridge, living in Maryland during the 1850 census, and one of their children was named Jane.

James Ridge (about 1809)

Caroline (about 1814)

Riley (about 1829)

Silas (about 1789)

Jane (about 1835)

Elizabeth (about 1837)

Merrit (about 1841)

Susan (about 1843)

Caroline (about 1848)

James (1850)

James the elder, Riley and Elizabeth were listed as farmers. Of course, I cannot be certain this is the correct family of Caroline Ridge pictured.

    Holy crap, this is what 46 looked like in 1860? I’ll be 45 this year. I think I’ve got a whole lot of livin’ to do this year.

    This Jane Ridge married Davis B. Dean. I “correct” think the family might have lived in Bucks County, Pa.

    This might be “Jane Buck” but I can’t find anything about her mother (yet).
