Hello, Family! I have to sadly announce the passing of Betty Jean Oliver Wilkie. 'Aunt' Betty (she was actually my cousin
& cousin in law) had been battling cancer for sometime. The good Lord called her home out of her suffering in June.
Hard to believe we're past 4th of July, isn't it? So far, I have attended two large family history conferences; one in
Philadelphia, PA and one in Raleigh, NC with my cousin, Sandra Wilkie. I've had the chance to go 'researching'
with Susan Procario, one of our Mendenhall cousins at Swarthmore College (we've got a lot of Quaker ancestors, you know) and
I made a few new friends at the Delaware County Historical Society and the Chester Historical Society. It's be also has been
great to present some living history at Fort Mifflin (Colonial & War Between the States eras) and Gettysburg (War Between
In October, Tony & I will be involved in the "Historic Nights of Fright" at the Fort. I get to play Elizabeth Bunker
(mistakenly reported to have hung herself). Tony's book, "Fort Mifflin: a Paranormal History" has been a sell out at the Fort
and he's considering a second edition through Amazon. Hope you all have a great summer! TTFN...Barb
