WikiTree Challenge Week 34

Guest Star: Amy Johnson Crow

Notes From Amy

  • Her paternal grandmother was the unofficial historian. She had bible and photographs. They were very close and she told Amy stories. Her mom's mom died in child birth when her mom was 8. Her mom didn't have a lot of connection with her mom's side of the family.
  • Early Ohio - 1780, lot of skirmishes between native american and settlers, settlers were going to do a raid on the Shawnees. The raid did not go well for her ancestor. He was pulled from his horse and never returned.
  • Mary Bell Steele, wife of James Steele - Maryland or District of Columbia, moved from Washington, DC to Ohio, during the Civil War and then back to Virginia.
  • The most challenging location to research is Ontario.
