She was able to share with me some stories that I didn't know. I have been able to share some things with her she didn't know. So the fun and adventures continue. She also has some wedding pictures of our grandmother and grandfather. I am looking forward to seeing those.
Our grandfather was William Chaplin - I believe he was a motorman for a trolley or bus or maybe the subway? He died when my Dad was 14; you Mom would have been pretty young, (She was 9) I think. From the description I got my best guess is he had bleeding esophageal varicose, or a bleeding ulcer. One of his favorite meals was beef and kidney stew and he drank tea, very, very black. I knew the cause of death and his line of work but didn't know about the stew or tea.
