  1. Greetings, I am Josephine Turpin Washington’s great-granddaughter. If anyone is able to direct me to a source of her writings, I would greatly appreciate it. I do not currently have any myself, but have heard about her from my father, her grandson. By the way, there is an article about her in Wikipedia. Catherine


    • Hi,
      How fascinating to have such an interesting and accomplished woman in your family tree! Thanks for reaching out. 🙂 I’d try a Google search to see if any of her works, which should be in the public domain, are available online. It would be a start, at least.
