#1-Ms. or Mrs.

Picture 7I think Glenora Jean Prott was a Ms., not a Mrs., but maybe you have a different opinion.

Here’s the way I figured it:

1. She told us that she and Elaine were the Prott sisters.

2. That meant that they both had the same last name.

3. In the olden days women always changed their last name when they got married.

4. Glenora Jean was still a Prott, so she didn’t change her name.

5. Therefore, she never got married and was Ms. Prott.

Please tell me if you think I am wrong or you have a different way to figure this out.

  1. Bri, she was the world’s most AWESOME TEACHER EVER!!! And Cheesie, her last name was Cheema! That is almost rarer than Prott!!!!!!!!¡

    • That could be…but I think the name Prott is kind of rare, so a Prott/Prott wedding would be even rarer. But it could happen. Maybe…

  2. I agree with you but wouldn’t she be a Miss……Mrs= Married
    Miss=Not Married
    Ms. Married or not married
    (usually they don’t want people to know)
    Also i agree with your reasons i think she was never married or she was and her husband died or she got divorced but she (probably) isn’t married

  3. Elaine and Glenora Jean are sister in laws because one of them could have married the others brother.

  4. Well you never know.I think Elaine and Glenora Jean belong to that cultor where men can be married to more than one wife. And Glenora Jean and her sister got married to the same man.But when he died Glenora Jean didn’t want to be sad so she took off her wedding ring and took down all the pictures of him and her.
    sincerely, Ashley

  5. Mrs. Prott is a widow( know you will like that word) and changed her last name back to prott making her a Mrs.

  6. I think that Glenora Gean Prott was Mrs. and mabey her husband died. Other than that i really dont know…

  7. I figured if you wanted to know weather Ms. Prott was married or not you could a)just ask b)look around her house and see if there were any pictures of a possible husband c)look for a ring on her finger or d) maybe her husband died or she got divorced and the thought of her husband was to painful so she took down all of the pictures of him and she changed her name back to Prott. Besides i don’t care if Glenn agrees with you i have my own logic that could be just as right as yours.

    • a) I never asked because I thought it was butting in.
      b) I was only in a couple of rooms of her house, and I didn’t want to snoop.
      c) She wasn’t wearing a ring.
      d) Could be. I never thought of her changing her name.

      Your logic is very good. Glenn never said I was right. He just said I “probably” was right.

    • But couldn’t her husband live with the mother and her because she was very rich didn’t u read the very end of it

  8. She could’ve gotten married then gotten divorced and changed her name back. But i think that she never got married.

  9. maybe Mrs. Prott married a man with the last name Prott and her sister Mrs/Ms. Prott married, but decided to keep her maiden name.

  10. prott probably is her maiden name, but she could have gotten married, and then divorced and changed her name back, and her sister could have gotten married and done the same thing, she just didn’t get married

  11. Well, maybe she married a man whose last name was Prott and then her sister married that man’s brother.

  12. Glenora Jean Prott could’ve been married at one time. Her husband could’ve died or she could’ve divorced him. Some women change their name back to their maiden name when their husband dies or they get divorced.

  13. Well, this is HIGHLY improbable, but what if they both were born with the last name Prott, but then Glenora Jean married a man who ALSO had the last name Prott. Then, her last name would still be Prott, but she would be a Mrs.

    • That is really good logic. I never thought of that possibility. (But is is highly improbable!)
