Emilie Bengel, a single mother back in a time where it was socially unheard of. It took me years to realize Lawrence was born nine years before she married her husband, John Young, and it appears John completely adopted Lawrence and raised him as his own. It wasn't until I was going through birth and death cards that I found this little gem revealing something no one in the family had ever realized. I even got lucky enough to find the name of the father. I wish I knew the whole story here but I can only imagine how much hardship she faced during this time period. There is one word I think of when I talk about this story and it's Brave.
