Angela Catherine COUCHIE - 21st Smile for the Camera
This is my entry into the 21st Edition of Smile For The Camera "Give Their Face A Place."
March is Women's History month and you are asked to picture women back into history. The unknown, known and unsung women who are often the foundation of our family history. Give their face a place. The interpretation is yours. Admission is free with every photograph!
Your submission may include as many or as few words as you feel are necessary to describe your treasured photograph. Those words may be in the form of an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem (your own or a favorite), a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article. The choice is yours!
This is a photo of my great grandmother, Angela Catherine COUCHIE EISWERTH.
Angela, who went by Catherine most of her life, was born in Beaver county, Pennsylvania to Enos KAVCIC and Apolonia ALBRECHT, Austrian immigrants, on 21 May 1900. She married Edward Charles EISWERTH on 14 Oct 1919 in East Palestine, Columbiana county, Ohio. He was 15 years her senior. She had one child, my grandfather. The family moved back to Edward's birthplace of Limestone township, Lycoming county, Pennsylvania where they ran a farm. Edward died in 1949. Catherine died 20 years later on 16 Sep 1969 in Williamsport, Lycoming county, Pennsylvania.
My dad remembered Catherine in a Sentimental Sunday post recently.
