In Memory of Mrs. Susan (Leach) Washington

Miss Susan Leach was born sometime around 1835 in Missouri.
Her parents were from Kentucky.
Susan was the first wife of William Washington.
They married on September 20, 1866 in St. Joseph, Missouri,
by J. John M. Wilkerson, a minster of the Gospel.

This chop photo  is believed to be of Susan
and her husband ,William / John Washington.
According to the 1870 census, Susan Washington was listed as black / white, keeps house. Susan couldn't read nor write.  She was living with her husband, William Washington who was listed as black / white and their two daughters, Laura Washington and Nannie Washington.

According to the 1880 census, Susan Washington was listed as black born in Missouri about 1845. Susan couldn't write.  She was living with husband, William who was listed as mulatto and their 6 children.  Laura Washington, Nannie Washington, Amelia Washington, James A. Washington, Virginia Washington, Lillie Washington and her mother, Lillie Lewis.  They lived on Mulberry Street.

Susan's mother, Lillie Lewis, was listed as black, a widowed, born in Kentucky about 1787. Lillie was listed at age 93. (Lillie's first name was Delilah. Lillie may have been a nickname.)

The paper trial of Susan is limited to her marriage record, the census records and her obituary. Also , I came across a 1947 handwritten obituary of Anna Laura Washington Walters. Anna's parents were Susan and John Washington. 

I stumbled across Susan's obituary in on May 16, 2017. The news paper was dated on Friday, January 10, 1890. "Mrs. William Washington passed at her residence at the corner of 18th and Mulberry streets, last evening at half passed six  o'clock...at the age of 54  ."

Mrs. Susan Washington passed on Thursday, January 9, 1890 at 6:15 pm her resident. She had a "lingering illness of one year and two days." Her funeral was held on Sunday at the A.M.E. at 2 PM.

Susan (Leach) Washington was my 2nd Great Grandmother on my mother's side. I'm on  the branch of Anna Laura (Washington) Allen Walters, her first daughter, Mary, her daughter Lula.

Thanks for reading.
God bless you.

Greetings! Happy Tewnty Eighteen!

 
Welcome to Another New Year!
I wish you the Best of 2018.
 
Last year, I had been reviewing some of what I've discovered over many years.  I made updated and make some corrections. I added more people to the family tree.

I've made more DNA family connections. Yes, we all have a story to share.  I hope more people will share their stories. It begins more out to our family connections.

I've said this before:
If you haven't searched your search for your family history, I hope you do.
Start with what you know... asked family members what they know.
Family history is an adventure to journey through.
It's takes a lifetime to do. And it's worth it.
And one person can't do it all.
 
Thanks for reading.

Made Some Progress in 2017: Hoping to Make More Discovering in 2018

Happy Last Day of 2017! I made some progress over this year. I came across more family connections on my mother's side and my father's side. Most of the connections were through the DNA matches.

I believe that there are more cousins out there. They are searching to find more on their family history What will do they know, if they keep searching the leads that they have, they might find more if they don't give up.

I've learned that when I kept searching, I came across more clues to follow up on. It takes time to search from information. We can guess at things. But, things have to match up in the long run.

I hope that you have discovered more on your family connections. I hope that you can add more to your family tree. I'm thankful for those who have added more to family connections.

I thank God for those who are reaching out. And those who are interested in finding more connections through the DNA route.  I'm thankful for family connections.

Thanks for reading.
God Bless you.

Another Year Dawning: Family Connections Continues

 I wish you all the Best of 2018.

If you haven't started searching for your family history, I hope you do.
Start with what you know... Ask family members what they know.
Family history is an adventure to journey through.
It's takes a lifetime in the doing.
And one person can't do it all.
I hope others will drive in and be apart of the team who records their history.
I'm in the process of reviewing some of what I've discovered over the years.
I see this as a necessary thing to do every year.
I found new info and have to make some corrections.

Indeed, it's an adventure to explore and discover our family connections.
We all have a story to share.
We should want to share what we know about our ancestors. 
I hope people will share.
Thanks for reading.
God Bless you.
