Fearless Females: Six Word Tribute

Lisa Alzo from The Accidental Genealogist  is repeating her series for Women's History Month.

March 15 — Write a six-word memoir tribute to one of your female ancestors.

This is to my Maternal Grandmother Mary Ann Holmes Chaplin

Mary Ann you look so grandmotherly.

I wish I had your stories.

Ten kids, family, widow, sadness, how?
(She buried a husband and three kids before she died.)

Mary Ann Holmes Chaplin in 1948 or 1949 Gorleston Sea, Yarmouth, Norfolk, England

I could not dicide which one I liked better, so here are three. 

Last year I did several of these post and I would like to share the links to those posts here.  Just click on the links to read them.

March 11 — Did you have any female ancestors who died young or from tragic or unexpected circumstances? Describe and how did this affect the family?  This post is about my mother and my second mother who both died too young.

March 12 — Working girl: Did your mother or grandmother work outside the home? What did she do? Describe her occupation.
