(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Great Grandma Fife

This photograph is the best one I've ever seen of my great grandma, Martha (Skiles) Fife. I've wondered if other cousins might have better ones. You can see her information from my genealogy database here, and her Find a Grave entry here.

  1. One of my ggg=grandmothers was named Martha Skiles; she married a Harris. I love the thoughtful pose of this picture.

  2. That's so cool! She wasn't from western Pennsylvania by any chance? I'm desperate to find out more about my Skiles relatives!

  3. "My" Martha Skiles was from Kentucky, but I believe her family was originally from Pennsylvania (Lancaster/Chester area). I read somewhere that all of the Skiles in this country may be related. Some of the names that recur in my line are Thomas and Henry; I think there are also some collateral Jacobs.


Don't be shy...say anything :)
