Fearless Females - Religion

March 10 — What role did religion play in your family? How did your female ancestors practice their faith? If they did not, why didn’t they? Did you have any female ancestors who served their churches in some capacity?

Immaculate Conception Church, Celina, OH
My Dad's family were members of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Celina, OH and it played a big role in their lives. My grandmother Anna Lee Pulskamp Creeden was in the Daughters of Isabella and Auxiliary to the Knights of St. John. My great-grandmother Anna Niehaus Creeden was in the Rosary-Altar Society and also in the Auxiliary to the Knights of St. John. My grandmother's twin sister Emma Lee Art directed the Woman's Choir for a 50th Anniversary mass and celebration for my great-grandparents George and Mary Pulskamp.

I don't have details on my Mom's ancestors yet, but have seen mentions of their membership in Methodist, Presbyterian, and Baptist churches in Maryland.
