Copyright 2014, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

This is week 19 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.

In celebration of Mother's Day, pedigree charts, the mothers in our lives.

(Note all maiden names.  I have written about many of these women here at Reflections over the years.  I will be writing about some of them in this series of Sunday's Stories, 52 Ancestor Weeks.)

The women that came before, influenced our lives, to whom we owe everything.
