Fearless Females Blog Post: March 14: In the News

March 14 — Newsmakers? Did you have a female ancestor who made the news? Why? Was she famous or notorious? Did she appear in the social column?

[Note: This post originally ran during the Fearless Females series in March 2010]

My ancestors were working class immigrants so there wasn't much of a chance for them to appear in the social columns of the local newspapers. I have mounted copy of my paternal grandmother's obituary from 1966 that appeared in the Daily News in McKeesport, PA. The funeral home provided it to the family.

I also had working class families in my past and not much for fearless females famous of notorius. I did have a male ancestor who kept giving the police trouble when he drank too much. Kind of notorius in the town where he was from. A number of articles mention his runins with police.
