At Randy Seaver’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun he challenges us to first figure out how old our great grandfather would be now if he had lived (I just so love math out comes the calculator). Then divide that number by 4 to get our “roulette number.” With this number, find the ancestor with that number in your ahnentafel (ancestor) list. Then write 3 facts that you know about that person. Here’s mine:
David M. Ogilvie is my great grandfather he was born b. 1861 in Perthshire Scotland would have been 150 yrs old this year, divide that by 4 that equals 37.5 or rounded #37
#37 on my ahnentafel is Christina Stucker
1. Christina was born 15 Nov 1836 in Holmes Co. Ohio her parents were Abraham and Elizabeth More. I find her with her parents in Prairie, Holmes Co., Ohio in the 1850 census where they live a few housing units away from Samuel J. and his family.
2. Christina married Samuel J. Cutter 13 Nov 1860 Holmes Co., Ohio. She is found with her husband in Holmesville Village, Holmes, Ohio in the 1900 census.
3. Christina died 13 Jan 1904 Holmes Co. Ohio
4. Christina and Samuel had 9 children eight boys 1 girl, the girl was third to the last. All of the children lived to adulthood. Wondering what it must have been like for Christina in that household of men and boys! I have a picture of the family in full, but I will have to go digging to find it. When I do I will add it to this post. The children and parents were named on it.
So much more to collect on this family. Randy thank you for the fun even if it included math!!!
