"Hello Mark.

Wow, thanks for sharing all the genealogy info on the Pedens on the net. I found your information today and simply could not believe the amount of well researched info you have and how well it is presented. Many thanks and kudos to you.

My Pedens are a branch of my tree which I have not worked previously. I have some 'family info' (not verified by me, but believed to be accurate) I thought I'd share with you as I descend from your hero Hosea's Uncle Moses. The info I have would be a collateral line for you and not everyone is interested in unverified family info beyond direct descendants, but I figure it gives a good starting point for additional research when time permits.

I mostly just wanted to thank you for preserving family history and tell you how interesting it was learning about Hosea. Thank you for sharing!

your 'cousin'
Sherry Morefield Gregg"

MOLLIE L. (LEDBETTER) TAYLOR - OBITUARY
DIED 17Feb1915

Mollie L. Taylor daughter of the late J.N. Ledbetter and wife was born in Battery Rock precinct some 50 years ago, and died at her home in Elizabethtown, Illinois February 17, 1915 after an illness of several months duration of an ailment of a malignant character, which failed to yield to medical or surgical treatment. She underwent a surgical operation in September last at the hands of her brother, Dr. J.N. Ledbetter of Michigan City, Indiana and Dr. Evers of Rosiclare, which gave her temporary relief. Later she was taken to Chicago where her brother had her admitted for a thorough x-ray test, which disclosed the sad fact that her condition was beyond the reach of medical or surgical skill. She was then brought home and everything possible was done to alleviate her suffering, until natures great ansesthetic, death, came to her relief. On October 8, 1884, Miss Mollie Ledbetter then a beautiful and accomplished young lady was united in marriage to Richard F. Taylor, a prominent young lawyer who had lately came here from Pope County. To this union seven children was born, four of which died in infancy or quite young. Of the three living, Miss Eunice is a teacher in the public schools at Harrisburg, IL. Richard F. Jr. has lucrative employment in Memphis, TN. and Bennie, the baby is attending school here. Mrs. Taylor was a woman of strong religious convictions, believing with all her heart that the fore-most force in the progress and civilization of the world is the Christian religion. That the normality and uplift of Christian sentiment and of standards of judgment created by it. She was an active worker in the Sunday school and Church, and every impulse of her pure heart was toward making the world a better place in which to live. Our deceased friend was a most lovely and lovable woman, kind hearted and sympathetic to a marked degree. Her devotion to her husband and children was only measured by her capacity to perform. In fact, she was so devoted to her family and their needs that she denied herself the comforts of life, sacrificing both health and strength, hastened the end and thus brought herself to a premature grave. She did this not from necessity, however, for she had plenty, but from an inordinate desire to leave a heritage for her children and she did leave them a handsome sum. Two days after her demise her remains were taken to the Methodist Church, which was filled to its capacity by relatives and sympathizing friends, who came to pay a last tribute of respect to the deceased, and after an impressive funeral discourse by the pastor, Rev. W.G. Wigham, the body was taken charge of by the Eastern Star Lodge of which she was an honored member, carried a short distance to the Old Cemetery, where after a beautiful ceremonial burial service by that Order, all that was mortal of this beloved wife and mother and friend was consigned to the earth. Peace to her ashes, sincere sympathy is extended to the devoted husband, children and all other relatives.
