This was my grandmother, born Margaret Smith but known throughout her childhood as Margaret Carr. She was born in Pittsburgh PA in 1906 to Margaret and Thomas Smith. Her great grandmother came over from Ireland during the famine of 1849-50 and her family was centered in the mining town of McKeesport PA. Her little brother died of pneumonia when she was very young and after his death her father left, never to be heard from again. Her mother went to work as a cleaning woman in a hospital in Pittsburgh and her sister, Mary Carr and her husband raised young Margaret as their own.
If you are of a certain age, were any of your relatives flappers?
