Tribute to Erastus & Hannah Sophia Ballou Holt Family
Today my Wordless Wednesday will be a tribute to the Erastus & Hannah Sophia Ballou Holt Family of Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois.
My story is not about my family. It is about finding 27 diaries kept by a gentleman from 1914 until he died in 1939.
Since I mentioned receiving my great-great grandmother’s obituary yesterday, I thought I would share how finding it would lead me down a path you may not have considered.
So, now you know that you and Cousin Rita are 3rd cousins, twice removed. And you probably wonder if you should even bother to include Cousin Rita in your family tree since she’s so “removed.” The answer is YES! It is important, very important!
