Today in Family History - 15 Jan

My 4th great-grandmother Margaret Hill (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1870 in Harris County, Texas [1, 2]. The location of Margaret's grave is not known, but she was presumably buried somewhere near Lynchburg or Morgan's Point, Texas as this is where the family was living when she died.

My great-grandmother Aafje (Orpha) Vandermade (Thompson line) was born on this day in 1886 in Muskegon, Muskegon, Michigan [3, 4, 5, 6].
