This layout is about my great-Aunt the photo is the original. Who is my paternal grandfather oldest and only sister. She was the only girl out of Nine boys born to her fathers two marriages. After her mother death in 1924. She would raise her four younger brother one of them was my paternal grandfather. He was as well as all the boys including their younger half-brother who was born to their step-mother. Was close to her and cared about her a lot. In her later years after she raised her children she started to write stories about her children when they were kids. Some of her brothers heard what she was doing. They liked the stories she wrote about her family. She decided to write a childhood story for each of her brothers. They enjoyed it I have the original story of my grandfather childhood she wrote for him. She even wrote a nice long story about her parents life. But sadly she never got to finish the story. She lived a long good life lived until she was 78. So, I decided to do this layout it fitting to call it "The Family Story Teller" without her stories my family and I wouldn't get to hear about past family members and what their lives were like. When they came to Michigan to live.
