Corey, it feels as if you went back to tap Fat MaMa her on the shoulder and asked her to "talk to me, let me know you , so I can know myself."

This part of your family gave me goose bumps.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Corey. I really enjoyed reading this article (of course, I enjoy reading everything on your blog). Your great-grandmother married at 13 to a man age 30. People forget that wasn't that unusual back then, but it must have been part of the reason it was a difficult union.

As Salima Masud above said getting to know your family history often allows you to know more about yourself.


Excellent article, Couin. The historical value alone is admirable, indeed. Thank you for sharing.


I really enjoyed reading this story. Thanks for sharing.


I wonder if your great-grandmother ever had a premonition that one day her great-grandson would post a story about her for all the world to read on his Web log.


Oh, and thanks, Corey, as always for all your hard work.
