Re: [40Whacks]My Relation...
- I remember when I was a kid (I'm 26) and we were at my grandma's on a weekend
and the Elizabeth Montgomery 'Lizzie' movie came on, my grandma made a
comment that we were related to her. I didn't make much of it at the time,
but when I got older and realized that people actually know who Lizzie Borden
was (when you're a little kid the fact that a movie is made about your
relative just doesn't drive the point home, I guess) I started asking my mom
questions (my grandma had died). She didn't know much and just told me what
she heard and that was that we were related to the Bordens on her Mom's side,
and that it was Andrew we were related to. Not being very involved in the
case ( I was then in my teens) that was enough for me to know to think it was
'cool'. My mother didn't know anyway, and there wasn't an internet I could
hop on. Anyway, my mom is dead now so if I wanted to find out more then I'd
have to do so on my own and at the moment I don't have the time, money, or
knowledge to do so. I know my family wasn't lying, but it's possible they
were misinformed. I don't know. Maybe one day I'll find out for sure.
