And some that do not interest us, but seem to preoccupy others:
- Trigg Palin, born 2008, Alaska, talents unknown except for photogenicity, son of Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, see grandma and others who have not reacted in public yet to perhaps a pending marriage putting more eyes in the camp, after all, at http://www.ontheredcarpet.com/2010/07/bristol-palin-and-levi-johnston-are-reportedly-engaged-to-be-married-following-a-breakup-after-she-gave-birth-to-their-son-tr.html/.
Now: How about the mothers. What is their story. What do secrets do to lives. What does humiliation, or force, do to lives. Does that concern skip a generation, the generation that bore the babies. Do they count. Obviously, not. Reconsider.
- Louise Lucinda Hilliard (Brien) 1876-1963
Louise, or Louisa; or put the Lucinda first; was born to Margaret Hilliard in Trillick, Ireland. Margaret was known as Maggie. Maggie was 14 years old, helping the housekeepers at Glengeen Lodge, a maid. Living there was William Brien, age 39 at the time, and he had his way. My grandmother, Louise Louisa Lucinda Hilliard Brien was born. Not all letches are evil; Mr. Brien as we referred to him as we learned the story, tried to have a relationship with both Maggie (too young at 14, and not suitable as a bride for a local "Lord"), and supported them both. When they came to the US, it was by second class steamship, and his stock and its income provided sustenance. See the Hilliards, parents still living on Main Street; and Mr. Brien, in 1910 at http://www.libraryireland.com/UlsterDirectory1910/Trillick.php
My cousin has letters, and has shared them.
The point here, is that ordinary people have children out of wedlock, they do well, but in our case, the humiliation and anger of my grandmother at being so stigmatized in a small Irish village by the 39-year old taking the 14 year-old stayed with her.
