I am looking for information on my ancestor Martha BIDWELL/BEDWELL. I have one source that says she was born in Letcher County, KY and another source that says she was born in Perry County. The source that names Letcher Co. as her birthplace says her maiden name was ADAMS; the Perry County source says the maiden name was BIDWELL.
She was born in 1848 OR 1852-1854. Again, my sources differ on this. Her husband's name was Abraham Newton BARE/BAIR. Does anyone know of a BIDWELL or BEDWELL family in Perry County in the 1840's to 1850's? Thanks a million if you provide a clue to this mystery!
