March 19 — Have you discovered a surprising fact about one of your female ancestors? What was it and how did you learn it? How did you feel when you found out?
My grandmother, Anna M Sullivan's aunt was Helena M Gleeson. Helena never married and was a school teacher at Prescott School in Anaconda, Montana. What surprised me was what I found in a city directory: in 1936, she was listed as Principal!
|Anaconda City Directory, 1936, p 32|
Now I need to do some research about Prescott School in Anaconda. I will contact the Historical Society and the School District to see what I can find about her career there.
