four generations Mckisson Snedden

Four generations from the maternal side of the Sneddens. The lady seated is Louisa (Stromyer) Mckisson who spent time in Western State Prison for shooting a farmhand from a neighboring farm. The man, named Forbes, was trespassing on her property. This photo shows Louisa (Stromyer) Mckisson seated, her daughter, Sarah (Mckisson) Snedden (Grandma Whitsell's Mom), Sarah's son Robert Snedden Jr. and Roberts daughter Grace Snedden. Louisa came from Germany with her family when she was 14. She later married Silas Mckisson. Silas served in the Civil War and was given a pension which Louisa lived on after he died.
