This workshop about the family history of John Washington Steele, a.k.a. Coal Oil Johnny, will include a presentation about researching Johnny’s family tree. Participants with ties to major families in his tree (Steeles, McClintocks, Amons, Culbertsons) will be asked to help “grow the branches.” Participants will also learn about the history of the church and its congregation. The workshop will conclude with a cleaning demonstration of headstones in Plumer Cemetery.
