According to the 1940 U.S. Census Lewis S. McCreary was born about 1874 in Michigan. His daughter Grace was born in 1911. The family lived on Clifton Street in Belmont. They had 2 maids – one named Hana Shea born about 1888 and Mary F. Sullivan born 1905.
Grace was born in 1911 – my mother was born in 1912. Grace’s father was in the plumbing equipment business – he had his own company. Grace’s father was about the same age as my mother’s father. My mother eventually became a librarian. I think Grace had similar interests. They enjoyed playing golf together at Oakley Country Club. They were just good friends and laughed a lot together.
How did Grace have such a grand house in Sconset on Nantucket? I think this was a family house of her grandparents the Spragues.
My mother passed away in October 2000. Grace passed in 2003.
