Jmae Dorothy Weaver Shaul 1923-2000
This Mother’s Day, I think back generations of strong, defiant, women who have molded generation after generation. It must have been in my mother’s DNA. Dating as far back as her 7 times great grandmother, Esther Ballard Jencks, there was defiance of rules that were thought to stand in the way of common sense — or fashion. Grandmother Jencks was presented at the Quarterly Court, in 1652, for wearing silver lace, found guilty and fined. Jmae would have loved knowing that!
About Pat Shaul
Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
