  1. Good for you, for responding to that twit at LA Weekly. So, who are they?

  2. Our Great-great grandparents, Alexander Maitland and Mary Grieves Oliphant. Married March 4, 1865, the day of Lincoln's second inauguration. Not that they were Union supporters. He was a confederate sympathizer. Her father was not!
