This is week 18 of my participation Amy Johnson Crow's, once a week challenge to blog about one ancestor a week, tell their story, biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on that one ancestor. More about the challenge can be found at her Blog, No Story Too Small.
Anna Susan Holsinger Trumbo was born on September 28, 1866 at Long Meadows, Rockingham County, Virginia to Peter Preston Holsinger and his wife, Mary A. Kessler Holsinger. Anna was one of six siblings and also had a half brother (by her father and his first wife).
Her birth record has been digitally edited for this format, and follows in two images, as the record spans two pages in the original record book. As with many records in Virginia, the quality is not the best.
Anna and Charles had six children. (There may have been 7 children, as there is family tradition of the birth of twins, one dying, one living to adulthood. No proof has been found, and the family Bible makes no mention of such a child.)
Anna died on October 26, 1934 in the Plains Magisterial District, Rockingham County, Virginia. She was buried two days later at the Linville Creek Church of the Brethren Cemetery in Broadway, Rockingham County Virginia.
