I met 3 of my grandparents before I was 5. My paternal grandfather was adopted by the Clancy family and his name was Frank or Francis H Clancy born in 1871 in Forestport, Oneida, NY. I don’t remember much for him except being told to be quiet and seeing him in his casket when he died. Grandma Clancy born Maud Miller in 1872 I remember as a good cook. I stayed with her for a while in 1948, about two weeks, my family used to drive to her home every Sunday for dinner from (Oneonta, NY to Utica, NY) and she taught me to crochet.
My Maternal grandfather was born in 1877, and my visual memory is his holding my hand as we crossed the RR tracks to buy an ice cream cone when I was about 4 yrs old, mainly of his mustache.
I have also memories of a great aunt, who I visited when young, she was born 1869. There is uncertainty of her name, but we called her Aunt Miney and her husband Uncle Oney and they were the Finnegans. I’ve since learned he was her 2nd husband -Owen. And she was Mina Miller, my maternal grandmother’s sister.
Of course I am 88 now, so it makes difference
