Manny’s birthday book – July 27

July 27, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  July 27 – Jack McLeod

Tilly Toddler’s knocked her head

A very hard, hard blow;

She loudly cried, and sadly sighed

“Oh dear, it hurts me so!”

Jack McLeod was Manny’s brother, John Alexander McLeod.  He was born 27 July 1911.  He died 9 March 1971 (as Manny has noted in her book) and was cremated at Karrakatta.  Jack’s first wife, Kathleen Ada Doyle can be seen in the family wedding photo in the header.

Jack and Kath had a daughter who died in 2010.

If you knew Jack, please comment – I’d love to hear from you.
