There s a backstory here While reading Passing Strange I found a reference to Ramona the novel shares the theme of interracial love I couldn t help but be curious when I saw the author s name Helen Hunt Jackson was my grandmother s maiden name As she was born in 1889 not too long after Ramona became a popular sensation I thought it impossible that her newspaper publishing father Andrew Jackson my great grandfather could not have known about Jackson when he named his eldest daughter I asked my mother about it and was amazed to be confirmed in my guess that her mother was indeed named after the famous author and staunch advocate of Native American rights What I was even fascinated to learn was that HHJ the author was actually a friend of Andrew s Apparently there s no family relation between Andrew and the Jackson who was HHJ s second husband The family used to spend summers in Colorado where HHJ made her home later in life The missing piece of the puzzle how a small town Iowa publisher and banker developed a friendship with a woman who must have been viewed as somewhat of a rabble rouser fell into place when I learned that my greatgrandfather s town was on a Native American reservation Tama I do find it remarkable that he felt strongly enough to make his child her namesake I m looking forward to of HHJ s writings nonfiction this time that are filling up my already loaded To Read shelf Intuición daughter I asked my mother about it and was amazed to be confirmed in my guess that her mother was indeed named after the famous author and staunch advocate of Native American rights What I was even fascinated to learn was that HHJ the author was actually a friend of Andrew s Apparently there s no family relation between Andrew and the Jackson who was HHJ s second husband The family used to spend summers in Colorado where HHJ made her home later in life The missing piece of the puzzle how a small town Iowa publisher and banker How Money Became Dangerous developed a friendship with a woman who must have been viewed as somewhat of a rabble rouser fell into place when I learned that my greatgrandfather s town was on a Native American reservation Tama I Windburn do find it remarkable that he felt strongly enough to make his child her namesake I m looking forward to of HHJ s writings nonfiction this time that are filling up my already loaded To Read shelf
