My grandmother. Brought from Paris. (Suresnes, Hauts de Seine, Lee – de – France)
I want to know the story. More. I have scoured ancestry.com and discovered more than I wanted to know, at the time. She was sixteen years old and lied to, by my grandfather. She was a WWII war bride. She went from Paris to Bainbridge Ga. Her name is on the walls of Ellis Island.
What a history my family has.
My father was born into poverty. Deep poverty. He was born into violence, as his father was. That was the excuse for his insanities. He wanted out and he got out. He fought his way out.
We are all still surviving.
My grandmother committed suicide in March 1957. The most popular song of that year was The People of Paris.
