Recommended reading: "The Dark Side of the Mountain" by Bonnie S. Johnson. Miss Johnson has researched genealogy for decades and discovered her own German immigrant heritage. This novel is about Anna Margaretha Mallow who settled the South Branch Valley of Va by 1753, along with other Germans. The novel traces her immigration in 1749 and eventual move to VA where she is confronted by the French and Indian War and the war chief Killbuck. She is captured and sold to a French trader and eventually returns home with a son Henry born on the Mississippi River. The novel is based on all the facts she could find. Anna Margaretha Mallow was a remarkable woman who survived a terrible tragedy, losing three children. Of note is that President Obama descends from this family through his mother. Martha Mallow Holloway is buried in the Mallow cemetery in Ross County OH and was his 4th great grandmother. These German immigrants including Heavener, Seybert and Roger among others were amazingly self-reliant, and I think it is important to remember their stories and the contributions they made to this country. Miss Johnson also descended from Hessian soldier Phillip Knee whose family settled Darke County OH.
