I’ll need to take a long pull at the novel again, but I do remember a reference in it regarding the name ‘Scarlett”.  It was a last name in her father’s family, and the character of Scarlett is in a bit of a rage and finally understands the hot-blooded fury that drove her Scarlett ancestors to do X or Y.  Given that her father’s last name is “O’Hara”, then the Scarletts might be the last name of Gerald O’Hara’s mother’s family.

I just finished a book on Doc Holiday.  It is thought Ashley Wilkes and Melanie were based on the scandal of Doc falling in love with his first cousin.  M. Mitchell had heard it told in her childhood and took that as the premise.  Alas, Doc was turned down and went west to cure his broken heart.  Don't know if I buy it but it's an interesting thought.   Beer

Mattie,  the cousin is in M, Mitchells family tree

Cordelia, The Holliday house with its tall columns reminds me of Tara in Gone With the Wind.

Cyril, the Holliday House is in Fayetteville, where Scarlett attended finishing school.  It's about 15 miles from Jonesboro, where Tara would have been located!  (And it's about 25 miles from Margaret Mitchell's house in Atlanta)

If you ever visit Georgia, you'd love all of the GWTW sites and inspirations!  Champagne

Countess, glad you like the pictures too...thanks for reminding me about that fascinating aspect to the story!  Beer
