When Great Grandma was younger

I love Great Grandma Reble. I want to see if I can come up with more stories about her when she was younger.

Here is what Momma helped me find about when she was younger. Great Grandma was born on Tuesday, 22 October 1912

  • 6 January, 1912: New Mexico became the 47th state.
  • 14 February 1912: Arizona became part of the United States. It’s the 48th state and the last in the Contenential States.
  • 14 April 1912: Titanic sank on her way to New York. Lots of people died because there weren’t enough life rafts.
  • 16 April 1912: Harriet Quimby, “American’s First Lady of the Air”, was the first woman to fly across the English Channel. She died while flying in a plane soon after. I think her career only lasted ten months.
  • She lived during World War II and the Depression.
  • The President was William Howard Taft, right after Theodore Roosevelt. He was the 27th president. Woodrow Wilson was the 28th president.

Thank you for reading my blog. I’ll put more things in, maybe everyday, as I learn them.
