A journey through my family connections.
Miss Roberts owned my grandparents house in Stafford springs CT before they bought it.
That's interesting. Was that Miss Roberts also named Leona? My mom's name was Leona Redles before she married. Roberts was her middle name. She was named after her mother Leona Roberts. But as far as I know, the only places they've lived have been Washington, D.C. and south Georgia.
I'll ask my mom if she was aware of Leona Roberts the actress. My mom would have been watching her movies back then. I looked up Miss Roberts and saw that she was Mrs. Meade in Gone With the Wind (among other film roles). I noticed she had a sister named Edith Roberts. My mom has a first cousin by that same name!
