Thank you and thank your Mother for me ,for that info. I would love to have time to research the subject more, but for now I work full time (and then some) so I really appreciate your input. Any information that you or your Mother have will be appreciated. It is interesting that Midwife practices, knowledge, and customs are handed down from generation to generation. I thought this might be the case. That is why I
was searching for info from that side . I have many stories about my Gggrandmother, Mary Angeline Mitchel McDonald
while living in Ark. I know she came to Ark from Kentucky, abt. 1891.
but I do not know anything about her family in Kentucky. Thanks again
