My Paternal Great Grandmother, Annie Lloyd (Sanders)Shumate

I never got to know her, and haven’t been able to learn much about her. She died long before I learned of us descending from her son, thanx to DNA testing. From what I have been able to glean, she was a loving gramma, though perhaps a bit too religious for my tastes. To be fair, most people that are religious are too religious for my tastes…

What is fascinating is how much my Father favored her, looked so much like her. might be why I feel driven to know more about her, and the Sanders family. The Sanders side seems to be responsible for a good portion of our look… Dark hair, deep set eyes, Olive skin..
