  • I can only remember one, my great grandad who died in 2003
  • Never met them.
  • nope. they were all gone by the time i came into the world.
  • no i don't they died before i was born.
  • No, the last of them died when I was an infant.
  • My great grandfather yes, a great deal facially. I am glad I am not as stubborn as he is reported to have been. of course he was in the Civil War and lived to talk about it, so maybe he was just more cranky as a result of all the terrible things he saw from age 19-21 as a Union soldier. I have a photo of him in his uniform with his musket/rifle and his original discharge papers, and they show all the big battles he was in. They also gave him $50.00 when he was discharged! Alot of money for 1865.
  • I can only remember one of them, and there are only two memories. The first one is when I was about 5 and the whole family went to the seaside for a week. The second memory was when she was in hospital before she died.
  • No, they were all dead decades before I was born!

  • Yes, two great-grandmothers
  • Yes On my Mom's side the lived next door to her parents (My Grandparents) and I remember running across the field to their house when we were there visiting. On my Dad's side I remember my Great Grandmom as she lived near his parent's home. They were all passed on by the time I was 10 but I do have some pretty clear memories. Thanks for the question, I hadn't thought of them for a while. Good memories!
  • One very well. We called her Mama Green. Her name was Dessie she was a wonderful person to know. She lived to be 109. She could tell you alot of history.
  • I remeber my great-grand parents on my mother's mother's side. In fact they raised me from the time I was six until I was around eleven. They didn't die until I was in my twenties. So Iremeber them quite well. And I think I meet my great-grandmother on her dad's side once when I was four. I was named after her and she gave me a puzzle.

  • I can remember my great-grandmothers. I was about 4 or 5 when they died.
  • I only met one set of them - my mother's maternal grandparents who lived into their mid 90s. I remember their own homestead and the swing in the tree, and how slowly they walked and how often they smiled. That's about it.

  • NO. In later years I was adopted by a lady whom I thought of as my grandmother or second mother. She died almost 4 years ago. She was also grandmother to my children for more than 10 years. I miss her terribly. She WAS family/grandma to us.

  • I only met one, my great-grandmother, and yes I can. I stayed with her sometimes when I was little, she was tiny and had no teeth and often wore a scarf around her head.
  • Yes I remember my maternal great grandmtoher. She was 4'9", wavy hair, very tiny. She always smelled like Estee Lauder Youth Dew. She was very proper. She grew up in Virginia and one of her brothers was a US Senator. She taught me to treat people with respect no matter what color they were. This was the 50's so she was ahead of her time. The last time I remember seeing her was Mother's Day of 1957. My Grandmother, Great Aunt & Great Uncle, myself and Great Grandma Heartfield went out for dinner. My Grandmothers got me ready. I can remember sitting at my Great Grandmothers vanity, she combed my long hair and put a ribbon in it. She gave me a small purse to carry with a tube of lipstick in it. She told me to remember that ladies don't put their lipstick on in public. I sat at the table and kept looking at my purse, knowing that the lipstick was in there but I couldn't put it on because my Grandmothers wanted me to learn to act like a lady. I remember that every time I feel the need to put on lipstick in public.
  • On my fathers side, I remember my great grandfather. He only died about 2 years ago. I don't remember his wife though, as she died when I was two. I have a lot of fond memories of him. Many people in my church and a lot of surrounding churches knew of him and have memories of him as well.
  • yup...she gave me my first dog....then someone stole it from our backyard.
  • I remember a great grandmother and a great grandfather on my dad's said. They were both alive for the better part of my life, and I saw them fairly often as a kid, considering they didn't live in the same city as me. They both died when i was around 10 i guess.

  • Yes, my one great grandmother died when I was 10 and she was very close to me. She told me one thing that I will never forget and they put it in the newspaper over a huge obituary = she died at 98. "Never Say Hate." I will never forget that she said no matter how difficult life gets and people treat you, if you look hard enough you can always find something about them you will like." I didn't always see eye to eye with her philosophy, but I tried to stay as true to it as I could.
  • No. They were all dead before I was born ... even 3 of my grandparents were dead before I was born. I do remember my mother's mother very well.
  • I had three living great-grandparents when I was born, including my paternal grandfather’s stepmother. My maternal grandfather’s father died in 1975, when I was two months old to the day, so I obviously don’t remember him; he was 86. My other surviving great-grandpa, my maternal grandmother’s father, died in 1980 at age 80; I was almost five. I remember him living with my great-aunt, always smoking a pipe, and giving us rides in his wheelchair. (He was also a retired police officer, actually.) And then there was Great-Grandma Mary: my paternal grandfather’s mother died in 1969, at the age of 77. In 1971, Great-Granddad married Mary; he was 78, she was 71. While their marriage only lasted nine months before Great-Granddad passed away, Mary lived until 2000, so I have quite a few memories of her. I remember visiting her in the Methodists’ home in Ocean Grove, NJ, where they’d let always let me play the piano. She lived there until 1995 or ’96, when she finally had to be moved into a nursing home. I was married and moved to Indiana in ’97, so I only saw her once, after that.
  • My great grandmother (my father's mother's mother) left us when I was 23, so I remember her quite well. She was a wonderful little woman, always with a smile, always asking if we would need anything and whose favourite sentence was: "Il vaut mieux être belle et rebelle que moche et remoche" (Being beautiful and rebel is much better than ugly and ugly again)
  • I only met one of them, the others passed away before I was born. My great-granmother on my fathers side had a piano, dogs that danced, and a milk cow, that is about all I can remember of her.
  • I remember four of my great-grandparents. One set was old and grumpy, my grandmother will even say they same thing; and they were her parents! The other set...is complicated. I remember my great-grandfather very well...we had the same birthday and we
  • My great grandmother on the maternal side is still alive. Shes 94 years old and will be 95 next year.
