Recently, in connecting with my distant cousins in the Blanchard family online, I was finally able to put a face to a name. Lucy Ann Riley, daughter of Stephen Riley and Grace, was my great grandmother. She was the third wife of Charles Forrest Blanchard.
I don't know much about her, I never met her. From what my grandmother told me, she was a very sweet person, and she really liked her. She is one that I will be researching very soon. It is so easy to research the men in the family, they left the paper trails. Women are much harder, although in most instances, they are the keepers of the family history.
