Fearless Females in Your Family Tree?

Since it is National Women's History Month, I thought I would focus my research during March on my female ancestors. What strikes me most about the women in my own family tree is their strength in adversity, and their determination. My mother was the best role model a daughter could hope for, and the more I learn about what my grandmothers and great-grandmothers had to endure, the more grateful I am to have the opportunities I do. So, here's to Verona, Elizabeth, Maria, Anna, Ilona, and Barbara.

Who are the fearless females in your family tree?

My fearless female ancestors includes my maternal grandmothers, Emma, her mother Bell, and Bell's mother Luvenia.
