mail order brides from Stargazer Campfire on Pinterest
Generational forgetting has been strong in my family, but my aunt insisted that her daddy said his mother was a catalog bride from England. I so wish she had kept a diary that had been passed down. I have to imagine what her life was before and after the emigration to Oklahoma and a husband who appears in a few pictures to have been a very small man with a really mean visage. As my grandfather was tall, I believe that she must have been as well.
