  •  What a great story. (5+ / 0-)

    Brook, your post may have been put up too late for most of the people on this thread to have read it.

    But it was very interesting.  If you could find any of the newspaper clippings or other info to flesh out the story, it would make a terrific diary for GFHC, and I know the others would appreciate it, as I did.

      I mean to try a diary again when life stops interfering!

      In this matter though I only have the dry data. This was never talked about in the family -which was why it threw me for a loop at first. I suspect there may be related secrets. Margaret had one child, a girl, with G Hyde who looks to have never been married and may have been institutionalized in later years. There's also an unexplained, short-lived move to Baltimore, Md.

      There's no doubt that G Hyde was a constant presence in the family - I do have pictures of him but none that I can swear to include Margaret.

      While I've been able to draw quite a lot from Massachusetts
      records - there are many unavailable online and I'm stuck in California.

        Where it's freezing. If there's anything you want me to look up, let me know.

        •   I'm sorry it's cold there (4+ / 0-)

          we warmed up today, but earlier in the week the avocado farmers were resorting to helicopters to keep the crop viable!

          Thank you very much for the kind offer. I'll keep it in mind. If I can ever help you in any way, just ask!

          Secret I never shared: love your name. My great-grandparents lived not far from Fenway I think. On Keswick.

            Last night was pretty cold, today it's back in the 40s so not too bad. Hope you stay warmer there!

            Keswick is a very short walk to Fenway. It's just around the corner from the Fenway trolley station.

            We go all over the state and beyond on a pretty regular basis, so if there is something at a town hall or the NEGHS you can use, don't hesitate to let me know.
