Marriage

Ref #3045; [M. O'Brien] Isabell met Thomas through an advertisement in the Boston Globe. Her grandfather, the village blacksmith in Needham, MA, placed an ad in the Globe for a helper. Replies flooded in and he asked Isabell to make the choice. Thomas was the one she picked, and their romance started immediately. (source: "She Found a Husband With Assist from Globe", Bost Globe, 1960) [M. O'Brien] 1966 Boston Herald article, "At 106, She Likes Rock 'n Roll, Short Skirts", says it was her brother-in-law who placed the ad. This makes a lot more sense. She had moved to Boston and was living with relatives (her sister, perhaps?) at the time. This was 1884. She remembered being driven to the wedding in a horse and buggy. "The couple lived in Needham and on Mission Hill for 50 years". At 92 she fell and broke her hip. She was alone without food or water for 2 days. [M. O'Brien] In another article from 1968, "Woman, 108, May Be State's Oldest", her nephew, Donald A. Cameron (77) said it was her father who placed the ad. Clearly this is wrong - her father never left Georgetown and he was a tailor.
