Oh. I know philip's mom was Anita (Nita) because she was "great granny Gee" and I had to go visit her in the old folks' home. Actually I had to visit her before then when she was still in her house. she served tinned salmon and tinned tangerine segments and raspberries in syrup. and had a muddy dingy basement (unusual in UK)

Aloys was my great grandfather on dad's side. He came over from Switzerland, and started a cigar shop in the town where I now live. I can't think of any more of them right now.

eta: I just found his name on the ancestry DOT com site. You have to pay to get more info.

Mother's Side - Virginia & Thomas Corcoran

Father's Side - Ruth & Herbert Ireland

Herbert's parents were Florence & Ralph Ireland

Ralph's parents were Lucy and Ephram Ireland


These are the only blood-related grandparents I ever knew.

I've got some step-grandparents too

how funny that Florence is the only repetition so far, and it's appeared 4 times!

Except for Radar's grandmother Virginia. That's what my grandma went by...she liked her middle name more than her name Florence. So that one was kind of repeated.

Oh crap, I forgot one! (yes, seriously!)

Mary - Mom's stepmom


My mom used to joke that they should have named me Mary, because then everyone would think I'd been named after them.
