The Cheyney House:
The current owners were most welcoming to open their home for 4 strangers who pulled into their driveway, last Friday afternoon.
Here is what I was looking for:
Who knows what it looked like in 1916, but I can’t imagine that it was too different.
I now have a copy of a letter that two of the daughters, who lived in this house at some point in their lives, took the baby from here to Brewster, NY when the baby was 5 weeks old.
Thank you, Nancy and Rob
This is part of a series of daily blogging prompts entitled Fearless Females created by Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog in honor of Women’s History Month .
* March 15 — Write a six-word memoir tribute to one of your female ancestors.
March 16 — If you could have lunch with any female family member (living or dead) or any famous female who would it be and why?
Where would you go?
What would you eat?
Guess you can guess, if you have been following this series of messages, Rear Admiral Grace Hopper.
Where to go, would be where ever she wanted to go. Somewhere in the Washington, DC area.
Who would be able to eat? Would be listening to her stories and from what I can tell, she has many.
Two specific topics:
Her stories about our ancestry. Although she is a descendant of Capt. John Worthington’s oldest son, and I from the youngest son, we do share common stories, I am sure.
The second would be her reaction of the changing of Technology over time. Her experience of computers are twice as long as mine, although I have been involved since the 1960’s. But would enjoy her computer stories.
