    Notes 
    • Jean emigrated to America from Glasgow, Scotland in 1916, when she was 22. She arrived on the vessel California, in New York City, on May 12th, 1916. She applied for citizenship when she was 33, on October 20th, 1928.

      She worked as a waitress and maid when she arrived. Two years later she married Albert Krivulka, who had emigrated from Hungary in 1918. They had three children; Juliette, Jean, and Albert.

      Juliette was born the year after they were married. Jean was ill while she was pregnant, and had a very high fever. As a result of this, Juliette was born mentally handicapped. At that time, children born mentally handicapped were normally institutionalized, or, if kept at home, shut away from sight. Jean not only kept Juliette at home, she insisted that she go everywhere the rest of the family did, that she get what education was available, and that she live as normal a life as anyone else. Juliette lived with her parents until she was 62, when Jean died.

      Albert had died a year earlier, at 86. Jean continued to care for Juliette until the day she died, at 87 years of age. Juliette died a year later; she lived with her brother Albert, and his wife, for a time, and then briefly, in a nursing home.
