Re: Traveling Great Grandmother #general


Could she have been working for some family that was on the same ship?  The fact that she apparently returned to England fairly soon after arriving in the states suggested this possibility.  I know that pregnant women and even just married women often did not work outside the family at the time, but she may have been an exception.  If the birth was premature, that would explain why her pregnancy did not show at the time.
