The individuals or families highlighted below are a small representation of the individuals who comprise our tree. By profiling them, we did not intend in any way to slight a family or disregard that family's contributions to our lineage. But, this site isn't able to accommodate all of the information that we have acquired; and, so, we were forced to choose.
Delia Jane Biddix (left): Pictured here with an unidentified daughter that we suspect may be Barbara Jane, was the wife of William David Eckard (1884-1952).
Among her grandchildren, there are mixed opinions about my grandmother's personality; some say she was gentle and loving, while others said there experiences were that she was indifferent and cold. I remember her as beleagered; which I think caused her to seem a cold person. Whatever her personality, Delia's life was not an easy one. Like my maternal grandmother, her's was a life of sparse means and daily hard work. To learn of her family, click on her link.
