One more story about spending time with my mother-in-law
I explained in a previous post that my mother-in-law has a bit of dementia. However I spent last Saturday and Sunday afternoons with her and she was very well. I had lots of fun hearing some of her stories. I started pulling up photos and asking her to identify the people in the photo. One of the photos that I pulled up is above. I have since had another genealogy buddy, Josie Bishop, identify the ladies in the photo.
I asked my mother-in-law who they were. She wasn't sure....not surprising since it turned out that they were Moses women (her husband was a Moses and she may have only met some of these women once or twice if at all). And definitely she would never have met them when they were this young as it is possible that her husband had not even been born at the time of the photo. After a minute she said: "well the one on the right is Sarah!" I looked and then looked again and then said: "You are right! That is Sarah!" It turns out that the lady on the far right is Lida Fitzgerald Moses (the wife of A.L. Moses) who was my husband's grandmother. I never knew her as an young woman. But I am telling you that my middle daughter, Sarah, is her spittin' image! And the small child in the front of the photo is a dead ringer for my niece, Meredith!
