I am a writer and lecturer of history - mostly about Mary (Todd) Lincoln's life and times. My areas of expertise include the Todd family, 19th century fashion, and women's history.
History has always fascinated me, and family history is a passion. Most of my ancestors were from Scotland and Ireland. Most settled in Ohio River communities along the shores of southern Indiana in Jefferson and Clark Counties. My goal is to someday write about my own family and the struggles of the Scots/Irish people who settled the Ohio River Valley.
Some of the surnames included in my family are: McCreary, Beach, Bruce, Hay, Getty, Bladen, King, Ellis, Lyons, Hardy, and Stalsworth.
