I would love to add your Family Tree Maker to mine. I am delighted to know what the middle initials stand for. I have a simple silver bracelet of Aunt Marie's with MMR on it. My sister is named Marie for our Aunt Marie- she was actually my great Aunt. Margaret Ralston Reading was her sister in law- also married to a doc in Galveston and lived close to each other.
We visited Stone Cottage too when I was a young child. Do you have photos of their home and the little chapel there. We do not and would like to have. I understand that the land is part of a boarding school now. Does the Stone Cottage still stand? Do you remember the big cuckoo clock?
Do you know about Marie's young married life in Galveston with her dashing doc husband, JC Ralston jr. The details of which were printed in the Houston Chronicle in 1920 He was tragically crushed when an elevator door closed on him. The elevator company paid a settlement which Marie had given to Trinity Episcopal Church Houston to make a tower on the church in his name- we just went and saw his name engraved on the arch His death is why /when elevator doors had safety features .
Aunt Marie was a beautiful young woman we have some fun photos of them clowning around. Are you interested? I am certainly interested in photos you might have Becky
