MY GRANDMA


AGE: 41

Marriage bond: April 10,1897
Whitley Co. Ky.

wife of: Frank Meadows

Father: Simon Stephens
Mother: Susan Strunk

(Parent's names came from her death certificate, so I have to assume that it's correct.)

Two known brother:
George
Albert

* NOTE * I don't have any info. on Grandma's family. I know she had a brother George, but Albert I'm not 100% sure of.

Cause of Death: flu epidemic that hit the area. She died within a few hours after her 2 year old baby Fannie. Grandpa was out making the funeral arrangements for the baby and when he returned home, she had passed. The dates on the stones say the 8th and the 9th, but it was only a 2 or 3 hour time frame. (This was the story told to me by my aunt Opal)

I never had the opportunity to know my grandmother Emma. She passed away when my dad was approx. 4 years old. Someone told me that she was a very kind and soft spoken lady. I can say one thing about my grandma, I think she's very pretty. There isn't very many photos of her around.
