Photo: Eva married in 1894, and in 1912 gave birth to her 2nd child, a baby girl she named Elizabeth Marilla. Elizabeth married in 1929, and early in 1932 gave birth to her 2nd child, a baby girl named Roberta Mae . . . and three days later, Elizabeth was dead. Roberta and her brother and father continued to make their home with "Grammie Smith" at least until the father remarried late in 1934. Grammie Smith -- aka Eva May -- died in 1936 in Lynn, Massachusetts. She was laid to rest beside her husband and daughter in Saco, Maine.
Photo: According to family tradition, 25-year-old Phoebe gave birth to a baby girl on the 17th day of January in the year 1874, presumably on the Merrill home place at Scarborough, Maine. At that time, Phoebe had already been married and had a son, but for reasons we will probably never know, the new baby girl went home with Phoebe's older sister, to be raised by Lizzie & Peter as their daughter. That baby girl grew up to become the woman my 77-year-old Mom still refers to as her "Grammie Smith" -- Eva Mae Smith nee "Brackett."
