It is Mother's Day, and I rejoice in my mother's presence with her Savior. However, I want to tell you about another mother who touched my heart. Her name, is Lucretia Love (Lee) Ogg. Lucretia was born June 18, 1859, in Austin, Texas. She lived until she didn't on February 25, 1935, in Plainview, Texas. Lucretia married Alfred Thomas Ogg on March 17, 1878, in Austin, Texas; she was eighteen. She had twenty-five children in twenty-six years, and today I want to memorialize this mother on Mother's Day 2023.
Lucretia Ogg is not a relative of mine, nor do I know any of her family. What we do have is this beautiful autograph book that belonged to her.
This year on Mother's Day, I hope you find some sentiment below that brings you joy as a mother, a sister, or a friend in Christ.
