No-Post today. She gets back into the swing of things in October with more posts, more adventures, letters and dates!
In the meantime, this is an article found by a friend of the family about the death of my grandfather’s , AKA Carsey‘s, first wife. Keep in mind this tragedy happened 2 years before Elizabeth took up her pen and wrote Mexico Summer. It’s hard to imagine the death of a 23-year-old, but then again, where would we be if she lived? I would not be blogging thats for sure. Its the same thought that went through my head as I was reading the Escape from Mexico article for the first time. The entire family was so close to death – a scary thought then – so surreal now. Still, its intriguing that grandpa was married to someone else.
I wonder what she looked like or if she had a great personality like my grandmother? I have so many questions about this poor soul who lived such a short time and unfortunately was buried in an unmarked grave. I’m sure his experience with her somehow led him to find Elizabeth. There must be a reason…..
Here is a look at what else was happening 80-years-ago today.
