Sarah Ann: A Jackson County Mystery” is the topic of the next Guild Lecture on Wednesday, May 16, from 12 noon-1 p.m., at the Medford Branch Library.
There are no names on her gravestone in the Jacksonville Cemetery—just the single word: “MOTHER.” Who was she? What was her story? How was her mystery solved? Anne Billeter, Director of the Jackson County Genealogy Library, will introduce this mysterious headstone and the woman for whom it was made as part of the “Mysteries in Our Backyard” project sponsored by the Rogue Valley Genealogical Society, the Southern Oregon Historical Society, and the Jackson County Heritage Association. The public can claim a mystery to solve and use the wealth of resources available at local historical societies and libraries by going to the website: www.mysteries.jcheritage.org/.
Presenter Anne Billeter was a librarian with Jackson County libraries for 22 years and also served two terms each on the Boards of the Josephine County Historical Society and the Southern Oregon Historical Society.
