102 Years Ago

I never knew her, my mother never knew her, my grandmother never knew her, but 102 years ago today, my 2nd great grandmother, Ellen Moynihan (she married James Slater and then married Thomas Tibbetts) passed away. She was in the hospital for a little more than two weeks(admitted on Nov. 25, 1910,) but had been suffering from stomach cancer for a year according to her death report. She was 42 years old.

Her son, James Paul Slater, had recently gotten married, November 20, 1910, and now I’m wondering if he got married because his mother was gravely ill? Unfortunately, we’ll never know.

Rest in Peace.
