She was born about 1802 to 1806 in Knox County, Kentucky. She died after February 17, 1855, in Bienville Parish, Louisiana, and most likely before the 1860 Census, where she does not appear.
We don’t know what her middle initial stand for, but it appears in her husband Thomas’s probate.
One researcher says Anna died after February 17, 1855. That’s when her name appears, but the document assumes she’s alive. In a September 28, 1857 document she is not mentioned, but it concerns the children. So it is best to state that she died sometime after February 17, 1855 and between the 1860 Census, where she does not appear.
