Genevieve Richmond Carradine

Thanks to fellow Richmond descendant, Michelle, who informed me that Genevieve Winifred (Richmond) Carradine, who was notable in her own right (said to be the first female brain surgeon in the United States, though I have yet to find corroborating evidence), was also famous through her Carradine son (John, born Richmond Reed Carradine) and grandchildren.  

Genevieve Winifred Richmond was born in 1885 to Horace and Winifred (Ryan) Richmond, in Milford, Otsego County, New York.
