Bickerstaff Descendants - U.S. ?

My mother's grandfather, Thomas Bernard Bickerstaff, had 11 children, 8 of whom lived to adulthood.  All are deceased.  Where are their descendants?  They would be of my mother's generation, my first cousins once removed; their children would be my second cousins. 

Richard C. Bickerstaff - had 2 children, my mother and my aunt, both still living
Charles B. Bickerstaff - had a son and a daughter [deceased]
Agnes B. Bickerstaff Coffin - had 3 children, 2 boys [1 deceased] and a girl
Barbara P. Bickerstaff Gifford - had 2 sons, both deceased, and a daughter
Alger F. Bickerstaff - had 1 son [that I know of], now deceased
Robert P. Bickerstaff - had a son* and a daughter
Erla M. Bickerstaff Russell Chase had no children that I know of
Myrtle L. Bickerstaff Gifford - do not know if she had children

*Robert's son Bob Jr. is the Bickerstaff who corresponded with John Eric Wolfe in England regarding the family in England and the "20,000 pounds going to Chancery" [see prior posts re: Agnes and Thomas Bickerstaff's mystery father and probate court]


*Corrections 7/2012 per Bob Bickerstaff [not a "Jr."]:  

Agnes Bickerstaff Coffin only had one child - a son. 
Alger F. Bickerstaff had three children. One daughter is deceased. 
    The other daughter and the son are both still living.
Erla Bickerstaff Russell Chase had four children from her first marriage.
Myrtle Bickerstaff Gifford did not have any children. 


Another correction - sadly, one of Richard Bickerstaff's daughters, my aunt, has passed away.  


Would love to hear from any Bickerstaff cousins.

Alger F. Bickerstaff had three children. One daughter, Bertha, is deceased. The other daughter, Marion, and the son, Alger, Jr., are both alive and living in Missouri.

Erla Bickerstaff Russell Chase had four children from her first marriage (to Cecil Russell) - Pauline, Donald, Harry, and Bernard.

Myrtle Bickerstaff Gifford did not have any children.
