I'd be interested in anything that you find out!I have done a lot of research - I'm actually researching Little Orphant Annie for a book.This would include Mary Alice Gray, the Riley poem, the comic strip character, the Radio Show, and the movies and TV programs.
I want to be as thorough as possible in all of my research.And that would include - Anna Kiefer's claim to the "Annie" title.So any info would be helpful.
I knew that Anna Kiefer was buried somewhere in Park Cemetery, but I didn't know that her headstone had any mention of her "Orphan Annie" claim to fame.
Ironically, I have been out to the Philadelphia Church Cemetery, located on the south side of U.S. 40 - west of Greenfield.This cemetery is where Mary Alice Gray is buried.Her headstone also has a special plaque that tells about her "Orphan Annie" claim to fame - as well as a historical marker.
Unfortunately, I didn't find anything on that website for Anna Kiefer in Park Cemetery.Of course, that doesn't mean anything - it just means that no one has gone out and documented the burials in Park Cemetery for the Find-a-Grave website.
Let me know of any info that you might find on Anna Kiefer - or anything else regarding Little Orphan Annie.You can always e-mail me at:firstname.lastname@example.org
