It’s not every day that a baby is born on Maine’s Little Cranberry Island — but if one is, it’s likely going to be a member of the Fernald family.
On Sept. 26, Erin Fernald Gray and Aaron Gray welcomed their sixth child, Azalea Belle Gray, with Erin delivering the baby at their Little Cranberry Island home. Warren Fernald, Erin’s grandfather, was the last person born on the tiny island, all the way back in 1927. “I think the connection with my grandfather is nice,” Erin told Good Morning America. “And, both my grandmother and I had six babies.”
Little Cranberry is one of five islands that make up the town of Cranberry Isles, population 120. The town clerk, Denise McCormick, told GMA that Azalea “lives in a house full of love,” and Erin said she believes her grandfather, a lobster fisherman who died in 2005, would “probably have some wisecrack” about his great-granddaughter being the one to take over his title.
