Very odd, as I presume you are referring to the indian warrior Geronimo.

According to wikipedia (yea, I know, any fool can edit it and make it wrong), but Geronimo did have a wife and children. So,. your granny had a better idea then some fool of a ranger.....

Wow, she certainly has been busy....

even more stuff is on the web... (yea.. the web of lies.. but.. it is there....)

saying some interesting stuff...

Charlie acted in hundreds of films and was a close personal friend of Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. Another grandson, Geronimo III, would often bring his Apaches down from the Mescalero Reservation in New Mexico for pow-wow each summer, to the great delight of the people in Alamogordo.

Geronimo is the ONLY Indian to be recognized worldwide for his bravery and ferocity, and this includes the likes of such great leaders as Cochise, Crazy Horse, Stand Watie, Osceola, Satanta, et al. The battle cry of "Geronimo" stands alone as the most powerful word in the military language.
so your granny may not be so mad after all..

Re: Your Family History

My Great Grandfather was the Harbormaster in Hamburg Germany. I would imagine he saw the first steam ships and the upcoming doom of sail.
