    Miss Mary - Mary Frances Hill Coley-Black. Midwife who delivered more than 3,000 in the southern US. Featured in 1953 educational film by George Stoney to teach midwifery skills to others. It is still being used in third world counties because of its simplicity. I watched this as an Amazon instant rental--very good

Henrietta Maria of France (25 November 1609 – 10 September 1669) was the Queen consort of England, Scotland, and Ireland as the wife of King Charles I. She was mother of two kings, Charles II and James II, and grandmother of two queens and one king, Mary II, William III and Anne of Great Britain, as well as paternal aunt of Louis XIV of France.
