A Boy His Own Grandfather There was a widow and her daughter, and a man and his son. The widow married the son, and the daughter the father ; the widow was therefore mother to her husband's father, and grandmother to her husband ; they had a son to whom she was great-grandmother, and as the son of a great-grandmother must be either a grandfather or great-uncle, this boy was therefore his own grandfather.
