Mary Grace Lapole Myers

  • Birth 31 Jul 1897 Hagerstown, Washington County, Maryland, USA
  • Death 8 Mar 1976 Baltimore City, Maryland, USA
  • Burial Baltimore, Baltimore City, Maryland, USA
  • Plot Garden of Awakening
  • Memorial ID 58470087

Grace had red hair and blue eyes, and her father, Charles Harvey Lapole, also had red hair. She married George Henry Lawrence Myers (23 Sept 1898 - 1 Oct 1983) on 8 June 1917.

George and Grace possibly met about the time she pushed him into a mud puddle in front of his father's home at 17 Ingleside Avenue in Catonsville.

Grace had been born in Hagerstown, but came to Catonsville with her parents in 1916. She did not like Catonsville at first, and so she returned to Hagerstown. She probably stayed with a good friend of hers, or other Clark or Lapole family members. However, Grace then decided to return to Catonsville.

Grace's daughter, Bessie Virginia (Myers) Selway, remembers that her mother was a daredevil when Grace was young. Bessie recalls her mother telling about the time when Grace was riding a horse on the Lurman Estate, and she did not have the saddle on tight, so she slid underneath the horse.
