Mother’s Day 2019


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!
