Mary Mook with Catherine, who was not related, but a live in help.  I remember visiting Catherine when I was very young, and when she died, she left me everything (she did not own much) in her will.  My mom was the executor.  Catherine had a son in the mental institution, I remember hearing rumors that he was the result of incest, and he died while still young - around age 12 I think.



Mother of Freda Francis (Aikey) Confer, my grandmother.  She married Paul Aikey, and after his death, married John Mook.  She is buried beside Paul Aikey.

  1. I love the photo. I get the impression she was a strong, independent woman.
