Many of you might not know that I’m 4th. Generation Gloucester born. This story is about my Paternal Great Grandfather published in the Gloucester Times 1931. My Great grandfather fished out of #Gloucesterma on the Morning Star and when came home from fishing he was informed of his wife’s passing. He passed away a few weeks later. Fishing was part of my heritage. My fathers ancestors arrived here in the 1860’s from Nova Scotia and My Moms ancestors even earlier arrived here from Ireland. God Bless the men and women who still work to bring fish to Gloucester. I am #gloucesterproud
