She was my maternal Great Grandmother who died before I was born therefore I never knew her. I have no recollections to share of her life. She was the mother of 15 children born between 1868-1889 among which were 3 sets of twins born in 1877, 1879 & 1885. She worked very hard as a washer woman to care for her children. Her husband died in 1891 leaving her with several small children to care for. The oldest children got married young so as to cut down on the size of her family thus making it easier for the mother.
