My grandmother, Mary, is listed in the 1910 census as a "fore lady" in a Lace Factory in Wilkes-Barre. She was 22 years old at the time. I assume that "fore lady" would be like a "fore man"....her younger brother, Robert, worked as an apprentice there. Interestingly enough, she had another younger brother named Henry. Years later, she named her second son (my father) Robert Henry. Not to hard to figure out where she got the name from.
I'm hoping that finding her obituary will lead me to other sources....like surviving siblings perhaps. I have no photographs of Mary. I hope to locate someone who may be able to provide me with one. Right now, her appearance exists only in my imagination.
