Juneteenth dedication of Minerva Lewis Marker in Scottsville, VA

On June 19, 2022, Sharon Dennis Wyeth had the very special honor of attending and speaking at the Juneteenth dedication at the Scottsville Market in honor or Minerva Bell Lewis, the town’s Juneteenth honoree, who was also her third great grandmother.

The Scottsville Market is located on the site of land formerly owned by Sharon’s ancestor.

After trying to find “her people” for many years, this was a truly moving moment for Sharon, who was asked to say a few works.

“Juneteenth Our Day of Freedom” is also dedicated to Sharon’s third great grandmother Minerva.

Sharon has a new book, The River and Me. Learn more at American Girl about Evette and her passion for nature!
