52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: Week 48 and December prompts

Week 48: Next to Last
There are several ways you could approach this theme. Who was the next-to-last ancestor you found? If you print out an ancestor chart, who is the next-to-last person listed? Pick an ancestral family and write about the next-to-last child. Since November is the next-to-last month, maybe feature an ancestor born in November.

When this prompt came out it was a few days after my Grandfather Bob’s Birthday.
