A Boy his Own Grandfather.
There were a widow and her daughter-in-law, and a man and his son. The widow married the son, and the daughter married "the old man." The widow was, therefore, mother to her husband's father, and consequently grandmother to her own husband. They had a son, to whom she was great grandmother. Now, as the son of a great grandmother must be either a grandfather or a great uncle, this boy was one or the other. He was his own grandfather.
