Geraldine M. Obenshain - gen. papers
Is this name familiar to anyone.I noticed in the Botetourt County Forum someone was hoping an Obenshain page would be set up...and it looks like it has.I have a large number of typewritten pages from a Geraldine M. Obenshain, whom it appears I am kin to but I'm not quite sure how (there are several Obenshains in my line, all from Botetourt County, VA).These were written to my Dad and has a number of his notes in the margins about a variety of Botetourt Families.They are very well researched and cover a lot of people with everything including newspaper clippings and the like and were written about 1972.She also has transcribed some letters written to her from my GGrandfather, Joel Chapman (Daddy Joe) Brewbaker when she was in Florida from 1942 and 43.Some of the families researched are Brewbaker, Windsor, Hayth, Craft, Hammit.
Visiting the Virginia room in Roanoke several weeks ago I came across a card catalog listing of the "papers of Geraldine Obenshain".Ecstatic over finding the "final" version of what I have from my Dad I requested they be brought to me only to find out the were nothing like what I have.Are these her notes for a book? or what??Does this sound familiar to anybody?
