    Joyce says 'Uncle Did is Harold - I assume you have heard that his nick-name was "Did", supposedly because his father would ask who did something and it was always he who "did" it. The writing is in my dad's hand, so "mom - left" would be his mother, Isabella Mary Wright. Isabella, also written on many photos as Isabel or Isabell, was called "Dolly" by everyone. Her father called her Darlin', which ended up evolving into Dolly.'
    Grace Evelyn Wright
    Grace Evelyn Wright
    Joyce says: According to a story I recall my mother telling me, Grace Evelyn, whom I called Aunt Eva, did not know if her given name was Grace Evelyn or Evelyn Grace until sometime in the 1960's or 1970's when my mother obtained Grace's birth certificate. My mother had gone to England to visit her family in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, and at Aunt Eva's request went to the records office and got a copy of Aunt Eva's birth certificate for her.
