My Great Grandmother was the daughter of "Lottie" (nee Wygant) & Frank Perry. She always said she was born in the year of the great blizzard. She spent her entire life in Hackensack, N.J. She married Samuel Reinert around 1910 in the home of her favorite Sister, Euphemia ("Effy"). Reverend Albert Von Schlieder performed the ceremony. Edna had 8 babies in 10 yrs, 3 children did not survive infancy (Herbert, Charles & Arthur) Florence, Howard, Mary, Edna & Charlotte. Edna was ahead of her time. She wanted to be a lawyer and loved to talk politics. She cut off her curls when she turned 18. She marched for women to have the right to vote down Main Street in Hackensack, by the courhouse. She was in the beginning of the line. Men were telling the women to go home to their children. She & her husband, Samuel, spent their later years living with their daughter, Florence & her family. She would do an Irish Jig while I was in my baby carriage to make me giggle. She was a sweet, funny, petite lady who was loved by all & she is still dearly missed.
