My grandmother, Bessie Frances Faulkenberry married Herschel Byron Hendrickson on April 20, 1913. Grandmas was born on the family farm in Lone Jack, Jackson County, Missouri; grandpa was born at home in the Shore family homestead. They had four children, Luella, Herschel Francis, Helen, and Alice.
Grandpa worked as a traveling salesman, only getting home on weekends for the most part. Grandma kept house and a close eye on her unruly brood. Grandma helped me with math as she was a wizard at all things math-related. Had she lived in today’s world I’m certain she would have been a computer programmer or doing something concerning higher math.
I still miss her.
