Ann Pettiford Medley grew up in Greenfield, Ohio.  She and her husband, Cecil Medley, raised five children and worked in the catering and food services field.  It was her daughter Patti Jo Harding who began to research the family history and enlisted the help of her cousin Diana Redman and Getting Word consultant Beverly Gray.  Mother and daughter were present at Getting Word’s first interview in Chillicothe in 1993.  Ann Medley remembers Sunday visits to her grandmother Anna Young Pettiford, some of whose siblings passed into the white world, cutting ties with the family.
