Fearless Females Blog Post: March 6 – Favorite Female Ancestor – Prompts for Women’s History Month

want to point out 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 which starts today, 1 March 2010.


Here are the prompts – consider honoring your female ancestors by posting at your genealogy or family history blog!

* March 6 — Describe an heirloom you may have inherited from a female ancestor (wedding ring or other jewelry, china, clothing, etc.) If you don’t have any, then write about a specific object you remember from your mother or grandmother, or aunt (a scarf, a hat, cooking utensil, furniture, etc.)

Since I started to Family Research, this picture has been on my wall, just above the computer monitor.

Hand stitched picture by Lydia Mercer, a cousin of my Grandmother Strode (mothers, mother).

As on the cross our Savior Hung
He bled He wept He died
He poured Salvation on The wretch
That Languished by his side

What is very interesting by the stitching, Languished has an error in it. It may be difficult to see, but it had the L and A, then an N above an ^ followed by “GUISHED”. Trying to insert the “n” between the A and the G.

Another item for my ToDo List. Find the note about this picture and apply it to the back safely, then document it with a picture with the details.
