My Great Aunt Sarah Catherine "Sadie" Bolender Ashcraft. Her and her husband Marion Grant Ashcraft had 13 children and all lived to adulthood. She was a midwife and delivered over 300 babies in the Eastern Colorado plains as well as treated many people for any number of diseases and maladies. She was quite a lady.

2012-07-13 Notified that Olive "Ashcraft" Wilson passed away on July 6, 2012. Olive is the last of Marion and Sadie Ashcraft's children. Marion and Sadie left a lasting legacy through their 13 children.
