McCann IV (Junior) -- When I was very little, and used to ask about my grandparents, the story I was always told was that my dad’s mother had died when he was a little boy and that my grandfather’s second wife had raised all of his children, in addition to the two more they had. It was not until my step-grandmother, Marion Cox, died in 1956 that I learned that she had nursed Corinne in the last weeks of Corinne's life in 1932. Corinne died of cancer with no real home and no money. As it turns out, my father was 18 when his mother died, not a little child. But as I was growing up, neither my father nor his siblings ever spoke much about their mother. Only once did my dad ever take me to the cemetery where she is buried (no stone), in the paupers’ section of the cemetery.

Dear Duane, Excuse my stepping into your personal site with another fam ily. I just recently learned that my maternal grandmother , Corine Mary Holsapple, was from Albany, or at least Clint on Co. She was born about 1893, married someone named Joe York (one son: John Rudolph) and then in 1913 married my gra ndfather in Chicago. I have no idea how she got to Chicago . The person who sent me this info also sent names and date s for her parents and grandparents as well as some of her b rothers and sisters. I found them listed in census indici s and the Kentucky death index (online). Can you tell me: a re there still Holsapples in Albany and Clinton County? I f so, would you have perhaps a name and address I could wri te to in order to get more information? As I recall, she ha d a brother named Aaron Burr Holsapple, another named Fred , a sister named Flossie (who married someone whose name wa s Ashberry Poc) and a couple of others. Her father's name w as Ambrose Bramlette Holsapple. If any of this rings a bell , I would be very much obliged for any help you might be ab le to give me.

Patrick McCann - Dallas, Texas [email protected] -- A few years ago, I managed to get copies of my grandparents’ divorce papers with transcripts. They were divorced in 1926; my grandmother claimed that my grandfather had deserted her, although he was living just a couple of blocks away. As a settlement, she asked for $2000 and for her children to be placed in an orphanage or a group home run by an order of nuns (pretty strange for a woman raised as a Baptist, don’t you think). So, she received her money, and the five kids were placed in an orphanage for a few months. But as soon as my grandfather remarried a couple of months later, he brought his children back to live with him and his new wife. I can’t imagine what that home must have been like, but I think that my dad’s reticence to talk about his mother stems from this. None of them ever resented Marion, however, and always referred to her as "mom."
