Historical Society, she has done much research for veterans of the

American Revolution here in Dearborn County, compiled histories of

African-Americans in Dearborn County and has helped many people

of Westmoreland." This tells the history of the Lochry

expedition and battle. Chris was awarded the Willard C. Heiss Family

History-Genealogy award in December of 2010. Chris has served on many
