How did the children feel about losing a mum and dog in two weeks?? I have the newspaper clipping..nothing can be hidden from me ..haha but apparently granny loved him to pieces.. even though he was a bit of a religious bigot.. story has it he told her if she brought up her son's protestant the girls could be Roman Catholic like her husband James...so....she only had one boy..Thomas..he was baptised twice..once protestant in 1925..St Anns church..and again in 1928..same time as my mum was being baptised down in the country ..Catholic..in the mean time Thomas Moorhead had bought her a business..crafty granny
