  •  My grandfather's were born in '91 and '94 (0+ / 0-)

    One's grandfather was born in 1807!

    It was a very different world back then.

    It amazes me to see how far up our family overall has moved up in the world.  Many of my ancestors were Londoners from Southwark and Lambeth.  In the 19th century these were not salubrious surroundings.

    It was due to progressive public policy that they got educations and chances to do more than handsew buttons on shirts as one of my widowed great great grandmothers did as piece work.
