Grandma’s 1922 history textbook

This was my maternal grandmother’s history textbook. I haven’t gotten a chance to share much about my mother’s side of our family yet on this blog, but I plan to expand to the Sloan and Maynard side as well. My grandma, Jean Elizabeth Sloan, was born in 1909.

Like most teens, it looks like Grandma Jean also got a little bored and did some doodling in her textbook. Or was it Annie Laurie?

  1. what a wonderful collection. My Great Grandmother was Hannah Sloan (daughter of Robert ). She married William Hornby and her youngest son was my grandfather. These details are lovely. Thank you
