Emigsville woman defied the Rebels

York County photographer Dianne Bowders sent me a photo of one of her ancestors, Ellen Busey Roland of Emigsville. Ironically, just a couple of days before then, I had downloaded the following article from newsinhistory.com.

    Thanks Scott, I’m happy that you could use Grandma Roland’s photo. Not quite a Molly Pitcher, but a very strong woman.

    Since posting this photo of Ellen Roland, I found a tintype photo of her husband Daniel Roland, who served in the GAR, either taken in camp with a backdrop or at a Union reunion. Let me know if you’d like to include it with Ellen’s photo.

    Certainly! Please e-mail the photo to scottmingus@yahoo.com.
