Idlewild's Mother Goose warming hearts for 20 years

For The Bulletin

Some Bostonians claim that the Mother Goose of fairy tales was Elizabeth Foster Goose (1665-1758) or Mary Goose who was buried in the Granary Burying Ground on Tremont Street in 1690. Another source from Boston claims that she was the second wife of Isaac Goose (1600s) who sang songs and ditties to her grandchildren, and her son-in-law later printed them.
