Hi Lisa. As I’m sure you know, my grandmother Luvenia Elizabeth Jacobs (daughter of John R. Jacobs and Polly Ann Brewington) was raised by Frances and Marsh Carter from the age of 5 after her mother, Polly Ann, died while giving birth to twins (tragically, both twins also died). John was unable to care for her and asked his sister Frances to her into their home.
Hi, Brian! Thanks for taking the time to comment. Yes, indeed, I know about your grandmother, though I didn’t know about the twins. — Lisa
