In the News, Nettie Richmond

Lisa Alzo, The Accidental Genealogist, has put together a great list of ideas to post every day for Women’s History Month. Post 14 is In the News. Lisa asks, “Newsmakers?  Did you have a female ancestor who made the news?  Why?  Was she famous or notorious?  Did she appear in the social column?”


My maternal great grandmother Nettie Ann (Warden) Richmond was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star (OES). I learned this through researching the newspapers on Ancestry.com. There were many articles that named Nettie as attending different events that they held. To this point, I have not found any article that places her as a prominent figure in the OES. But through contact with the chapter she was associated with, I have learned that she was the Most Worthy Matron. You can read more about Nettie and the OES in my previous post.
