Women Of Woodcraft Montana
« on: Friday 17 July 20 10:04 BST (UK) »
Seeking help to find out more about the social history of the organisation "Women Of Woodcraft" in the wild west Montana around 1903. My ancestor Eliz Ellen Hichens was a member then. She also ran a "Trading Post " there. I have not been able to locate any Montana records about her involvement here. Any support is appreciated . Thank you .
