August 20 ~ This day in 1890 is marked by the death of Anna Barbara BARTCHEY, my 3x great-grandmother, in Wayne County, Ohio. She is pictured here with her husband, Jacob ZAUGG, Jr. Whenever I see this picture I can hear my Grandpa Ritchie say, "Those Zauggs were BIG women." I fight against those genes everyday! [Yes, I realize she was not born a Zaugg, but that's what Grandpa always said.]
Finding her gravestone was a great story - think I'll start working on that for this week's Tombstone Tuesday!!
