Here are few of my female ancestors for whom I was able to locate a great deal of records and where those records were located:
- Barbara (Siefert) Beiger Fennan Haase Haase (died in Illinois in 1903)--two divorces (1870s and 1880s) and the guardianship of her children in the 1850s.
- Nancy Jane (Newman) Rampley (died in 1923 in Illinois)--her denied Civil War widow's pension was finally approved in the very early 20th century, after a great deal of testimony which documented much of her life before and after her marriage to the Civil War veteran.
- Antje (Jaspers) Habben Fecht (died in 1900 in Illinois)--a family court case after her husband's death in 1877 documented her operation of the family farm after his demise.
- Susannah Rucker--deeds executed by her children in Orange and Amherst Counties in Virginia in the mid-18th century document her move from one county to another.
