Description

Work on transcribing descendants from of Frederick Mumma (1767-1822) and Phillip Mumma (1765-1836) from the database at Mumma.org to my own database and website has concluded. Of the original immigrant Peter Mumma's six offspring, this leaves only the descendants of his first-born, Johannes Mumma (1763-1829) as yet to be transcribed. Work on that line will continue over the coming weeks.

While traversing the descendants of Frederick Mumma on Mumma.org, I came across the profile of professional businesswoman Mabel Rettew Kissinger (1885-1972), my fourth cousin three times removed, who, despite losing an arm at around the age of twenty, went on to become a corporate secretary, accountant, president of the Business and Professional Women's Club of Dayton, and ultimately one of the highest paid women of that city.
