Cheryl McCann is a Midwestern girl at heart. She has lived in Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri all her life, but never found a place that felt like home until she and her husband Terry moved to Liberty in 1992 to start their family. She is the active and proud mother of two children and has a long list of hobbies and interests, including historical costuming and nature photography. When not working on her projects and volunteering, she is the owner of McCann’s Bookkeeping and Tax Service which she has run successfully since 2003 from a little office in her backyard, while raising her children. History, Ancestry and DAR became important to her about 5 years ago and since then she has started visiting the Clay County Archives to work on projects for the Atkins-Johnson Farm. Her first book, Stirring Up History, was published in December 2016 and is available now.
