Several members of my family tree had musical ability.
Great Grandmother Loretta (McManus) Daughrity (1894-1936) played the piano, Great Uncle Arthur Daughrity (1875-1935) loved to sing, Gilbert Ernest Roberts (1920-1944), my Grandfather played the guitar.
The ancestor that I was fortunate to be able to witness their love of music was my paternal Grandmother, Mary Baker Hudson (1920-2010). Mimi, as I called her loved to play the piano. She played by ear. That always amazed me. Having taken years of piano lessons, I couldn't get over the fact that she could just hear a song and then play it. Beautifully.
This picture was taken on a visit from Mimi to our home. She joins my brother and I as we enjoy time together entertaining the family.
