Re: What is your most interesting discovery?
In Response To: What is your most interesting discovery? ()
Goodness, I have a few. However THE most interesting (sickening) has to deal with my maternal grandfather. Learning that he had been married at least twice prior to my grandmother (whom everyone thought was the first), and naming all of his first born daughters after the previous wife. I am the oldest of more that 40 (known) grandchildren. He resided in Louisiana, Georgia,California, Nevada,and Oregon. Also, he kidnapped one set of children and kept them from their mother for several years, moving them around the country. He left them with a preacher in California (who knew the kids had been abducted). They were eventually reunited with their mother. The stories of his exploits get worse with each new spouse.
