We were both so busy over Memorial Day weekend at different cemeteries and with our families that we did not have time to finish our research for the planned episode this week. However, we have a very special return guest with a fascinating story joining us next week and we will be able to return to our regularly scheduled program! We humbly apologize and we thank you for sticking with us on all of our Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery journeys. Until we meet again!

Doris McCraw

Author & Historian

Doris A. McCraw is a mid-westerner who found her home at the foot of Pikes Peak in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. As a child, she would sit and listen to the stories of those around her. It was the beginning of a lifelong passion to find and share the stories of those who preceded her.
The midwest where she grew up was filled with stories of pioneers who braved the wilderness to build forts, towns, and businesses. The Mississippi River, near her hometown, also inspired a love of nature.

Once she found the obituary of Julia E. Loomis she began a journey to tell the stories of these early women physicians who gave so much. It became her mission to make sure their names were not forgotten.

Doris also writes and publishes fiction under the pen name Angela Raines.
All her work can be found on Amazon.
