DICKS, JOHNSON posted by Judy Johnson Dryden on Wednesday, October 1, 1997

I am looking for information on Pasco Philmore JOHNSON who, according to my father's birth certificate, was born in Bradford County, and was living in or near Tarpon Springs (Pinellas County), FL when my father, Willie Lee Johnson, was born August 21, 1921. Pasco's wife was Ellen Priscilla DICKS, born in Columbia County, FL. My father was a twin (had a sister named Ellen Lee Johnson). Pasco and Ellen were 28 years old when my father was born. I know that the Dicks' were a well-known Columbia County family (they are almost all buried at Hopeful Baptist Church, including my father who died this year in May). I discovered their burial whereabouts through the Internet a year or so ago. My grandmother Ellen Dicks lived near Ichatucknee (sp?) Springs for years and then moved to Lake City for the rest of her life. She died in 1970. Any information would be welcomed.
RIVENBURGH, WARREN posted by Russell Rivenburg on Saturday, October 4, 1997

In his veteran's pension (Union Army) application, filed in Starke, FL, my great great grandfather, David RIVENBURGH, claimed to have lived in Starke for 10 or 15 years under the name of John WARREN, his grandfather. He had fled Hamden, NY, allegedly after having robbed a factory. He left a wife and two sons in Hamden. Did he have a second family while here in the south? Does anyone know what he did here?

I am looking for information on the ALVAREZ and CANOVA families. I have a Eunice C. Alvarez who was b 9/19/1876 in Starke, Bradford County, FL and died sometime after 11/26/1942. She married Edward Emanuel Canova 2/20/1895 in Starke and I'm somewhat positive she and her husband spent their entire life in the area.
