Hazel Knapp Oldham
Birth: May 6, 1907
West Virginia, USA
Death: Jan. 13, 1974
Franklin County
Ohio, USA

Hazel Knapp Oldham (affectionately known as "Grammy") was my paternal grandmother. She was born in 1907 in West Virginia to Emil and Martha Knapp. On November 26, 1926, she married my grandfather, Franklin T. Oldham, Sr. My father, Franklin T. Oldham, Jr., was born on October 30, 1927. Tragedy struck a year later when Frank Sr. was badly injured in a construction accident. He passed away from his injuries on December 27, 1928. Now widowed, Hazel worked at various jobs to support herself and her son. She worked as a teacher and as a nurse, and later in life as a caregiver. Sadly, Hazel passed away at age 67 from a pulmonary embolism (blood clot) after suffering a broken hip.

Hazel was very proud of Frank Jr. and his family. "Grammy" was excellent at crocheting, and I will always remember the baked apples she'd fix for us grandkids when we came to visit.
