I must confess that I lifted it out of an old joke.

I was going to say that. But she did have a brother: Damned Hogg.

Here, EB, pull the other one . . .

According the Wikipedia article on James Hogg:

Quote:
The following year he married Sarah Ann Stinson. They had four children, Will (1875), Ima (1882), Mike (1885), and Tom (1887). Ima was named for the heroine of the novel The Fate of Marvin, written by Hogg's older brother Tom in 1873. Although legend states that the Hoggs also had a daughter named Ura, that allegation is false.


Which, by the way, makes my original statement somewhat incorrect. Ima was his oldest daughter, because she was his only daughter.

My brother and I used to joke about poor (rich) Ima frequently. Our humor standards were not high.

There's a comedian (and poet) named John Wing who always joked that his parents wanted to strike it rich so they could endow the local hospital to build the "Wing Wing".
