My GGG Aunt was Eliza HALL ARMISTEAD who was born in 1846 and married William AUSTIN in New Orleans. He died before 1870 and she moved, at some point, to Central City and can be found in the 1880 census as Eliza AUSTIN; schoolteacher. Would there be any records of her? I can't find anything else on her.

Any information on James B(?) and/or Frank RIDPATH/REDPATH who mined in the area west of Central City in the late 1800's. James Ridpath, my G-G-Grandfather was a Justice of the Peace, and involved in the establishment of Carbonate Camp. He also lived in the Hot Springs area. I am aware of numerous references to the Rid/Redpaths in the annotated Deadwood newspapers of the period. I would especially like to find any photographs of James, should they exist. He is reputed to have planted an apple orchard, of which there may still be some trace. I will be visiting the Black Hills this June to do some more research.

John M. GARDNER. The middle initial is not a known. He was originally from Iowa, fought in the Civil War in Sherman's March to the sea. Was married in Iowa and later moved to the Black Hills area of South Dakota. According to family oral history he was a United States Marshall in the three or four counties making up the Dakota Territories before these counties became a part of the state of South Dakota. He had several children, one of the older of which was my grandfather, William Hiram GARDNER. My grandfather married Florence BURGESS, who I believe was a graduate of the Teacher's training school in Spearfish and was a school teacher when she married my grandfather. All these events were before 1900. My father was born in the Black Hills in 1901, but not sure in which city. I have a lot of oral family history and some history from old correspondence primarily from my grandmother's family. My one problem though is an inability to find the maiden name of my great grandmother, John GARDNER'S wife. I have a picture of both of them, but no information as to her background. I had long thought her maiden name might be PENCE, but think that is unlikely now, since that is a name that is back several generations in my mother's family history. I would appreciate any assistance in identifying my great grandmother. Thank you, Richard Gardner
