    Maternal Leslie and Stuart.

    Paternal Lillian and Basil.

    I had a great grandfather Sam Morrison, I knew names of others right back the mid 1800 but that's so long ago.

    My grandparents:

    Maternal: Henry John Mayer and Violet Esselborn Mayer
    Paternal: Vincenzo Cianci (always known as James, Jim or Jimmy for some reason) and Caterina Miloro Cianci

    I know my maternal great grandfather's name was Frederick, but I don't know my great grandmother's name. According to my mother, she was a real tyrant, mean and nasty to her as a child.

    Likewise, I don't know the names of my paternal great grandparents. They were dead for decades before I was born.
