Subject: RE: BS: New news *not* about the virus
thanks for posting the story, Mrrzy, some years back I read about much younger second wives of Civil War veterans & thought the story might be about a widow's death.

Back in the 70s I had an older friend who was a 2nd generation Australian. She was born before or during the first world war, a late child of a man whose father arrived in Australia in 1793, 5 years after British settlement.
