The grandparent's occupation thread was interesting, and it made me think of where some of them were from.
Both of my grandfathers were from St. Martinville, LA. My paternal grandpaw moved to Morgan City as a young man to work on the railroad. My maternal grandpaw moved to NOLA as a child.
My paternal grandmaw was from Gibson, LA and my maternal grandmaw was born in NOLA, but very little is known about her background as she was ophaned at 12, and raised by her older brothers.
