Ladies Aid 1914
Women of Wetmore (WOW)
Members of the Wetmore-Hardscrabble Genealogical and Historical Society are very excited about our newest endeavor. We are in the process of compiling a history of the Women of Wetmore (WOW) for publication and reference. This publication will showcase the courage and the spirit of the pioneer women of the Wetmore and Hardscrabble area and their families.
The first phase of this exciting project will be the gathering of family stories and photos, and we are looking for help from WHG&HS members, area residents, and readers throughout the country. If your family has a history in the Wetmore-Hardscrabble area, we hope you will share the stories and photos of the women in your family tree, including great-grandmothers, grandmothers and mothers. If your family tree encompasses several families, please be sure to include all members that are pertinent to the Wetmore-Hardscrabble area. Special anecdotes would also be greatly appreciated.
We have set dates to run from 1860 to 1920; however, we may have to stop at 1910 or 1900. The women need to have lived in the Wetmore-Hardscrabble area during this time frame. There are at least 19 resources that we can utilize in the research. We would like to include at least 5 photographs for each family. Each participant will be required to sign a release/gift document to the WHG&HS on their submissions. See below to download the Deed of Gift form.
You may send your written history and photos to
Each submission must be accompanied by a Deed of Gift.

As part of this on going project, one or two women will be highlighted at future WHG&HS meetings. We would encourage any residents or members to present a program regarding the special pioneering women of their family tree.
Thank you in advance, and we look forward to hearing from you.
