Earlier this week some of you saw my Great Great Aunt Emma's autograph book.
I am so lucky not only to have hers, but my Great Grandmother's and
Let me introduce you.
My Paternal Great Grandmother
Catherine Fitzhue Wilson Galbreath
She was born in 1866, and this is a tin type of her and the
youngest picture I have of her.
Another tin type. She looks so sad her, this was taken
around the time her Mother died when she was 7.
Here is her autograph book.
So many entries from her family members with sweet sayings
and poems of the day.
Her married name is what is written in it.
And it was given to her by her sister Effie
Here Aunt Effie and Mama our riding donkeys in Colorado

They were married
They lost their farm in the country and their home in town during
the great depression. They moved in and lived with my
Grandparents for a while at 1515.
6 generations have laid their heads down to sleep at 1515.
Here is my Grandmother's
