My Grandmother had 4 sisters, and all was well until the death of her father in 1875. after that she had to go live with a rich family and be their servant girl.
In about 1884, she met and fell in love with Richard who was a breakman for the hocking county railway system.
Grandma gave birth to her son July 26 1906. He died shortly after birth. Then 4 days later, fate would take her. Richard was very distraught and he turned over the household to his eldest daughter Vera.
Grandma was buried in mt calvary cemetery in the ender family plot, with her father and all of the other ender's were.
Grandma was taken in the prime of her life, left 6 children, and a husband.
Found in a little box at my grandma's was her wedding ring, inside it was inscribed with the initials of the man who loved her. I felt so humbled by being the recipient of this beautiful ring, and knowing who it belonged to.
