Shared note
GWR letter to GLR dated July 3, 1947: "Dear George and Bob.... I never knew but one grandfather he died at about 75 whereas Rev. George Richardson died at 33, when Geo. Edwin was but four and Elizabeth eight.... When my father was 11 father went to live with his mothers brother in Leyden.... When the next boy born after Joseph he was named George Fremont he was but a year younger than Joseph was a very lively bright boy and singer - he died at 7 years of typhoid dysentry and as I was born after his demise I was named George Walter[.] Mother seemed to have an intuition that he couldn't live for she kept record of his sayings and other incidents... "I often meditate, what might have been our chances in life had mother lived, yet she was better off - She did what she could - her work was done."
