Bertha Bush Shipley- 1876-1966

Bertha Bush Shipley Posted by Hello
I was hesitant to include Bertha's picture as she was not born into the family, but married into it.
She married Ulysses Hays Shipley about 1903. Ulysses is pictured below.
"The Shipleys of Maryland 2002" states "Bertha was a teacher, exemplary companion and lover of flowers..."
My Great-Aunt Peg (Margaret Ann Larue Murray, pictured below) described her otherwise, in a long letter entitled "My history of the family" she wrote me around 1993. To paraphrase this passage: Ulysses & Bertha were married and living in his mother's home, as was his unmarried sister. This sister did not get along with Bertha, and went so far as to describe her as a "Hellion!" Ulysses, being an intelligent man, arranged for his sister to meet a teacher friend of his, and they ended up marrying. This artfully separated these sister-in-laws at war.
The sister was my Great-Grandmother Martha Carrol Gertrude Shipley.
