My 2nd Great Grandmother Anna's many offspring were a challenge for genealogists!  Born in Bohemia, came to the US at age 6, married and went to homestead the Dakota Territory. Her husband died in a farm accident and she raised all the kids on the farm and ran a combining crew.  A 'can-do" lady!

God bless Anna. I looked at the picture, cleaned my glasses and looked at the picture again. An amazing can-do woman. Do you know if she had any great-great grandchildren? A beautiful woman, a beautiful family a beautiful farm and I couldn't say anything without mentioning the beautiful car also. Thank you for sharing this remarkable woman.

Thanks, Jerry, she does indeed have great-great grandchildren and we still gather every three years. heart

Robin gatherings are so nice. Does a family gathering once every three years ever benefit your Wikitree research?

Wow that 2nd Great Grandmother of yours is fantastic, she is a true hero for raising such a big family on her farm and to be celebrating her anniversary at a ripe old age, she still looks very healthy.

Thank you Robin for sharing your wonderful treasure with us.
