Re: Edith Claire Posener - Edith Head
I am attempting to find out more abt. Ms. Head's "Posener" lineage as well.Here is the story:
I am researching more info on my great aunt - I grew up thinking she was my blood great aunt.
Alma R. Key b. Mar 14, 1906 in ? My great grandmother took her into our family in the 30 or 40's.So this is the story my family always told:
Alma's sister was supposively a "big time fashion designer" (Edith Head), took Alma's children away and admitted Alma to the Lakeland/Central State Hospital (asylum) in Louisville KY.I don't know when this happened.My great grandmother, Rosa Woody took her into her home in Boyle Co, KY to be househelp probably in the 40's or 50's.There she stayed until great grandmothers death in 1967.Then my great aunt Ruth Aldridge took her into her home until Ruth's death in 1982.I do not know where Alma went aft. that.She died July 1986.I am researching her family.
