  1. Hi, You have me curious as to which of Marguerite's daughters the grandson married. I am Marguerite's granddaughter and named after her. My dad, her son, is the last living member of his generation. So if I understand your first sentence correctly the grandson is my uncle. Marguerite (White) Blodgett

    1. Gus married a Nora no last name found yet
      Henry's wife was Ruth

      That's amazing thank you for sharing that.
      Make sure you gets lots of stories written down if he's the last.
