re: #108 HappyWarrior

I wonder about this kind of stuff too. From what I have discovered, I think my Nana(father’s mother), I think her parents were living with her mother’s widowed mother and her mother’s then unmarried brother at the time of her birth in 1912. I also know that their great grandmother (their mother’s paternal grandmother) was living with an aunt that lived nearby when my Nana’s older brother and sister were born in 1903 and 1905. I have her obituary. She only spoke Irish. This was a lady who certainly knew people born in the 18th century whose granddaughter’s children still impact us today in the 21st. I don’t know what kind of person third Great Nana Bridget was but her life fascinates me.

This goes the other way too. I realized the other day that my goddaughter, born in 2016, has a pretty decent chance of living to see the 22nd century, as do many other children born today. The future is not as far away as we’d like to think either.
