grandmothers choice--Union Square

Union Square, third in a series of 49 blocks shared by Barbara Brackman in her block-of-the-week history lesson recalling the fight for women's rights.

The Gerrit Jan and Graada (Carrie) Diekevers family, northern Michigan, McBain area.
back row: Cornelius, Edward, John, Hillegen (Ella)--my grandmother
front row: Gerrit Jan, Henry, Graada (Carrie Rabbers)
They later moved to Boyden, Iowa where Gerrit Jan was a carpenter.
