A to Z Blogging Challenge: I is for Isabella

Philadelphia Isabella Evatt Pressley was one of my great-great-grandmothers on my mama's side. I never met her. She died just a few days after my mama was born. When I'm talking about her, I usually refer to her as "Delphia", but I love her middle name "Isabella". The name makes me think of Italy, but our family came to the United States from Ireland over three hundred years ago.

I don't know too terribly much about her other than that she had a major houseful of children. I believe that she and her husband Richard had thirteen children. One of these was my great-grandpa Julius Jared Pressley. My first-born son was named after him.

I do have this picture of her, shared with me by another Pressley-linked relative.
