  • Notes 
    • From Edythe Alma (Pearsall) Palmer (citation details below):

      Your great grandmother [Carolyn Green] […] I only knew her for a few months when we lived with her and grandpa Mead in their Albion MI apartment. She had dimples, a giggle, and pretty blue eyes. She was a professional baker as per her photo (in 1896) from a Detroit baker's convention. When she and her future husband attended the same school, she became quite upset when this hulking fellow kept annoying her by untying her blue sash, right in school!
      And of course, until very recently, no one really knew that she had been an orphan, and was adopted by an elder sister's husband, after her father Captain John Green, was killed in the Civil War. (I have his photo.) Her mother was already gone. Upon her adoption her name changed from Green to Lansing, and upon her marriage to Edwin Mead, she became Caroline Green Lansing Mead. There is much information about the Lansings in Lansing, MI, state archives.
