My mother, who was seven years old when her mother died, said she always remembered the sadness of her Father on the day his Mother-in-Law took his baby Joseph away -- he had lost his wife, Mother, and baby in three days. Aunt Ellie was 12 and she brought up the other three children and stayed with her father until he died in 1924." [from the recollections of Mary O'Brien (nee MacDonald)]
