|Marion Frances Gragg|
While we wait...PATIENTLY, for the results of my step-daughters DNA, she asked her Mom for what she knew about her bio family. Apparently, her mom's parents had died when she was a teenager and she went to live with an aunt and uncle. So Char gave me the names and birthdates of both the mom and the dad.
I couldn't wait to look it all up - I found her Mom. Easy peasy. However, Dad was not showing up as the name she gave me.
To not keep you in suspense I found out that the father before he married the mom, had been a guest on Alcatraz Island. Served his time - Got out - changed his name and married the mom. I have no idea if Char's mom knew or even if Marion Gragg knew.
I haven't shared the news yet with Char - I think she'll get a kick out of it; as I did. Funny that the only photo of good old granddad is his mugshot from Alcatraz.
