  • Notes 
    • I remember my grandmother telling me how her father who was a doctor took her on his rounds in his horse and buggy and she loved those expeditions. Her younger ┬ásister Stella, was not included which also seemed to please her.

      Per Edes: Gertrude always wore blue; her sister Stella always wore red.
