Brief History


It is only fitting that a woman with an uncle named Gaius would marry a man named Augustus.  The two of them apparently had affection for the royal family, for after Queen Victoria married her first cousin in 1840, Thomas and Keturah named their next two children Albert and Victoria, respectively.


Despite the ambitious names, Thomas was a shoemaker and provided a humble living for the family.  After Thomasís death some time in the 1850ís, the family slipped into urban poverty.  Keturah worked as a cleaning lady, two of her sons followed their fatherís footsteps as shoemakerís apprentices, and two other sons went abroad as sailors.
