Mrs. Alice (Roosevelt) Longworth
Mrs. Alice (Roosevelt) Longworth
A photo of Mrs. Alice (Roosevelt) Longworth, full-length portrait

Alice Roosevelt was the only child of President Teddy Roosevelt and his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee. (Her mother died when she was 2 days old.)

A strong woman, not bound by the "rules" of the time, Alice came to public attention at the age of 17 when her father became President. Even the color of the blue dress that she wore this same year became a fashion trend - called "Alice Blue".

She did such scandalous things as ride in cars with men, smoke cigarettes in public, keep a snake in the White House, and jump into a pool fully clothed while on a diplomatic trip to Japan.

In February 1906, Alice married (later) Speaker of the House Nicholas Longworth III, wearing a blue wedding dress. But she was still independent, campaigning against her own husband and carrying on numerous affairs. Senator William Borah (R-ID) was the father of her only child, daughter Paulina Longworth (born in 1925), but she and Longworth remained married until his death in 1931.

Her rambunctious attitude never changed - she buried a voodoo doll of Nellie Taft (the new First Lady) in the front yard of the White House when the Roosevelts had to leave at the end of Teddy's term - and was banned from the White House a few times because of her behavior. And after her daughter died in 1957, she raised her granddaughter.

A life-long Republican, she nonetheless was close to the Kennedy family and voted for Lyndon Johnson (because she thought Goldwater was "too mean"). She was a friend to Richard Nixon and encouraged him to run for President - he invited her to a White House dinner and his daughter's wedding.

Alice died in 1980 at the age of 96. Along the path of her very long life, she made quite an impression. To Joe McCarthy (he of "commie witch hunt" fame) who had said: "Here's my blind date. I am going to call you Alice", she replied "Senator McCarthy, you are not going to call me Alice. The truckman, the trashman and the policeman on my block may call me Alice, but you may not." And she told President Johnson that she "wore wide-brimmed hats so he couldn't kiss her".

John Henry Friday
John Henry Friday
A photo of my great-grandfather, John Henry Friday, who fought with the 8th Regiment Ohio Cavalry. He was seriously wounded in Virginia and spent time incarcerated in the infamous Andersonville Prison. He later homesteaded in Nebraska. For a story about his life-go to scrolling to the bottom of the homepage to 'Stories'. Click on: 'John Henry Friday-Soldier, Prisoner, Pioneer' A copy of this photo - which was probably done at the time of his enlistment in 1861 - was sent to what is now Andersonville National Park for their archives.

(A small portion of his story if you click the link: He was captured and incarcerated for about 8 months in Andersonville Prison in Georgia and he was exchanged just before the end of the war. According to wikipedia the 8th Regiment Ohio Cavalry..."served primarily in West Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia..." According to most government documents, John Henry was "Captured in action in Liberty , Va. June 19/64 admitted to the Hospital at Andersonville, Ga., treated for diarrhea and returned to
prison quarter Nov 11/64. Sent to Savannah, Ga. Nov 15/64 where he was paroled Nov 20/64 and sent to Camp Parole, Md. Nov 27/64 where he reported and was furloughed for 30 days. Return
date not stated and sent to U.S. Genl Hospital, Annapolis, Md. Febr. 1865." Camp Parole was built outside Annapolis where Union prisoners paroled from Confederate prisons could get a bath, a shave, fresh clothing and, if needed, medical attention. They would then
either be sent home or join their regiments.
Disability for Discharge papers dated June 19, 1865-describe him as "unfit to perform
his duties of a soldier because of a Gunshot Fracture of the left tibia and fibula causing ulceration of the anterior muscle of the leg". The document Declaration -- Invalid Pension State of Ohio, County of Franklin July 1865 states that "he was engaged with his company and regiment
(Co. 'G' 8th Ohio Cavalry) in Battle with the Rebel forces & that while so engaged he was wounded by a gunshot which struck him in the left leg about halfway between the knee and ankle, the ball passing entirely through the said leg, fracturing both bones of the same-that by reason of said wound he is almost totally disabled." That after being wounded, he was first taken to the Rebel Post Hospital in Liberty, Virginia-having been taken Prisoner by the said Rebel forces, in different Prisons until the 20th of November 1864." Therefore, John Henry was wounded and taken prisoner at or near Liberty, Virginia. Located between Lynchburg and Roanoke. (The town was renamed Bedford in the 1890s.)

John Henry's gravestone in the cemetery in Fairbury, Nebraska-has a marker noting his Civil War service.
Smith Brothers, WW 1
Smith Brothers, WW 1
This undated photo provided by the Smith family shows four of the five Smith brothers, who were killed during World War I, pose for a photo in Barnard Castle, England. Clockwise from bottom left, John W Stout, Alfred, George Henry and Frederick.

Queen Mary, wife of King George V, heard about the sacrifice of the brothers and intervened to send the sixth, Willie, home.

Robert 22, died first, in September 1916. George Henry, 26, died less than two months later.

Frederick, 21, died in July 1917, while the eldest, 37-year-old John William Stout — who had their mother’s maiden name because she was not yet married when he was born — died in October 1917. The fifth son, Alfred, died in July 1918.

The mother’s grief was apparently more than the vicar’s wife could bear. She wrote to Queen Mary about the deaths of Margaret’s five sons and how she had a sixth son still at war.

Although he suffered from the effects of being gassed, once home, Willie worked as a chimney sweep and a stone mason.
