Grandma Lulu Mae Martin
married Bertram Wright

My Grandmother
Lulu Mae Martin Wright-A Hamrick Descendant

Lulu Mae Martin was 15 years old in 1900 when the photo of her was taken, which I recently used to paint the portrait, I knew her only as Grandma, but not til the 1960's, when she was old, gray, funny, sharp as a tack, prone to take a nip or two, smoked like a chimney, coughed like she was about to keel over, into the ever present tissue, and chase us kids around the house on Stonehedge Way in her big orthopaedic shoes, worn over her thick stockings that she held up with large bands of elastic that did not make it up over her knees, and which she was always yanking up, she always had on a cotton apron, with big pockets that hid the treasures of the world and a  truly mischievous twinkle in her eye. She could give a killer massage and taught me how to pull and make the best homemade taffy this side of Coney Island.
Grandma was a real hoot!
