#45: Strength: Elizabeth “Eliza” S. Faris

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks is a series of weekly prompts to get you to think about an ancestor and share something about them. The weekly prompt is provided by www.amyjohnsoncrow.com. The prompt for the week of November 28 is "Strength".  For over a week I struggled in trying to think of an ancestor to apply this prompt too.  I scrolled and scrolled through the family tree looking for inspiration and potential facts that could lead to a story about strength.  And then I found the story of one of my wife’s ancestors, her 4th great-grand aunt, that embodies Strength.  And it is so hard to believe that the details of this woman’s story from the early 1800’s was so well documented.
