52 Ancestors - SAME NAME: Mary Mary Mary

I’m running out of time to meet this week’s challenge, so I present to you my longest continuous list of women named Mary:

My sister Mary Jollette (still kicking it)

My mother Mary Eleanor Davis Slade (1929-2005)

My grandmother Mary Lucille Rucker Davis (or maybe Lucille Mary) (1904-1990)

My great-grandmother Mary Susan Eppard Rucker (1875-1958)

Amy Johnson Crow continues to challenge genealogy bloggers and non-bloggers alike to think about our ancestors and share a story or photo about them. The challenge is “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks.
