    "Ma-Maw Stanley was born Marie Mistrot Carrico. When her mother and father divorced, her grandmother Susan Kennedy, took her away from her mother, Hattie or Harriet, because she did not agree with Daughter's "life style." She placed Ma-Maw in a convent in New Orleans. At some point, if I remember correctly, she was at a convent or school in Palestine. Mammy, as she called her grandmother, would come to visit her for two weeks during the summer. The rest of the summer Ma-Maw spent alone in the dormitory except for an occasional over-night stay by one of her favorite nuns to keep her company. They also let her have a pet pig one summer. Must have been a very lonely life. I don't know what they did not like about Christ Carrico. Ma-Maw said one time that they felt that Daughter had married beneath her status in life. She was estranged from her parents, Nathan and Susan Kennedy. She later married Fred Mair, so she then became Harriet Lee Mair. They lived in Colorado. For a while she lived in San Diego. There she made friends with various sea captains who would send her unposted stamps from all over the world. Finally she ended up in Mineral Wells at a nursing home because Ma-Maw was not able to keep her with her. She died when I was in high school.

    On the trip when Mother took both Ma-Maws to California, they were passing through a town in New Mexico (I'm not sure if it was Albuquerque) and Ma-Maw mentioned that this was were her father was buried. Mother asked if she wanted to go to his grave. She said that she did not know where it was as it was unmarked. Well, you know Mother, she took the bull by the horns, went to the cemetery, found the information, and then Ma-Maw made arrangements to place a marker. We know very little about Christ and Ma-Maw was always reluctant to talk about him.
