I don’t know who Aunt Tot could be. Gram’s aunts were Sue, Jessie Marion, Edna, Anna, Helen, and Maggie. Any one of those could have had the cute nickname of Tot. Gram was in fact addressed by her nickname – Pat – her entire life. Only people who didn’t know her called her Katharine. She told me one time that when she was a child, her father called her “his little Patsy” and it stuck. We called her Grandma Pat when we were little, and friends and neighbors called her Aunt Pat. One of the many clever things Gram did was the “name tag” she put on the little dolls and stuffed animals she made for various children. They were a little scrap of white fabric with a drawing of an ant next to the word Pat. I remember asking her about that one time because I didn’t know folks called her Aunt Pat.
Maybe Aunt Tot was not a relative at all.
