Hi Tony, Pauline was my paternal grandmother. She died a year before I was born. My father provided Dr. Robertson with most of the material for his book "An American Poet in Paris". I have a Google alert for "Pauline Avery Crawford" and thus saw your post. I visited Paris with my wife and children about 5 year ago and visited her cemetery. I am now retired and interested in family genealogy. Fascinating to see your post. Regards, John Crawford
