The Cunliffe story
The story goes...
My Grandmother Elizabeth Cunliffe born 1919 in England had a child at a young age out of wedlock. The story goes that she had gotten pregnent by a waelthy man at a young age. The man she had the child with took the boy away from her and took him home to his family. The last time she ever saw her son, he had told her that his mommy was dead. She never saw him again. Elizabeth later Married Frank Costello from Ireland and had a Daughter, her name is Margaret Lazarus my mother. A few years later they moved to America, were they now live in Illinois. I just found this info out from my mother, who said not to say anything to my grandmother because it would upset her to much. My sweet little gradmother dose worry her self sick alot, so their for i can't get any more info then that.
