Tombstone Tuesday - Mattie Josephine Church

Mattie Josephine (Oller) Church
Granddaughter of Crawford and Mary Oller. Her parents were William and Mary (Christian) Oller. She was born in Winlock and died in Hoquiam. She married George Dewey Church.

Most people called her Jo, and I got my middle name Jo from her. She was my grandmother.

  1. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
