Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (October 30, 1857 - June 14, 1948) was an American writer. Gertrude Franklin Horn was born on October 30, 1857 in San Francisco to Thomas Ludovich (in business) and Gertrude Franklin Horn. Her paternal grandfather, Stephen Franklin, was a devout Presbyterian, insisted she be well read, and this influenced her greatly. She eloped with George H.B. Atherton, son of Faxon Atherton, on February 14, 1876. She was only 19 at the time, and later had two children with him. Two tragedies changed her life dramatically: Her son George would die of diphtheria, and her husband perished at sea. She was left with her daughter Muriel, and she needed some way to support the two of them.show more
