Excellent.

So... Granny was a wise woman. Please do tell.

Hmmm...Jello? Did your grandmother know Rose Knox by any chance? Seems possible at least. I wouldn't think many women owned banks and factorys at the same time in NY back then that wouldn't know of each other.


Cheers

Hi Jello,
It was just a hunch. Bidness wimmin and all...

Rose Knox, née Markward, aka Mrs Charles B. Knox (November 18, 1857 – 1950) was an American businesswoman, who ran the Knox Gelatin Factory in Johnstown, New York, USA after her husband died. She won wide respect as one of the leading businesswomen of her time.
