As for Mac not knowing her Mother - I can completely believe that. All our lives we were told that some sort of friction between my grandfather & grandmother getting married caused her & Him not to visit either of their parents any after their marriage. Although her sisters' Families stayed with my grandmother & grandfather once when a flood destroyed their home, that was while Elizabeth & Thomas were both alive. My Mother used to remember the trip that my grandmother went on to go to Elizabeth's Funeral, but she never EVER took her kids to visit (except maybe my Aunt, the oldest child of my grandmother is the only one that ever met Elizabeth & her son (my Aunt's son) contracted TB which eventually killed him as well. My Aunt was 20 something years older than my mother though & her son was just a few months older than my mother. Elizabeth died when my mother was only 4. With my Mother being the youngest of my grandfather's 12 kids (8 of which are with my grandfather)- the gap in ages makes things harder to research. Only her & one brother still live & he is just getting dementia & she is in the late stages of Early On-set Alzheimer's. All the rest of the siblings died in the 1980's and 1990's & one in 2002. When I started my research, I had 4 living aunts & Uncles, but 2 died shortly after I started after only being able to give me a small amount of information. So you can see this is really frustrating, but I am used to it. There are some family secrets & I am determined to find them out because things they thought were really disgraceful back then are completely acceptable these days - and I think I'm fixing to find something when I break this wall down...
