Solving for X: 10

I was born in July 1967. My mother died in May 1969. "Her home" was "my home." After her passing, "my maternal village" was activated. My mother was the second oldest of five sisters. I am the youngest of five sisters with a 14-year age gap between me and the youngest sister. I have a lot of "matrilineal memories," but none of them include my mother. However, I am told I look a lot like her.

My maternal grandmother, Florence, died i n 1949 long before I was born. I "experienced" my grandmother through six of her twelve children; my aunts and uncles.
