  • Notes 
    • DAR ID Number: 64215 She was a third grade teacher in the Carrollton Public School System for many years. As a member of the DAR it was she who responsible for tracing the Herndon line of the family back through Archelaus Perkins for DAR qualification. Miss Anna, as she was known by most of Carrollton remained to her dying day a staunch Rebel who actively displayed the Rebel flag, called Negroes (whom she respected "in their place") Negras, and referred to President Lincoln as "Mr. Lincoln". Along with her father, "Cap'n Otey" she never surrendered. (ref. V. B. Otey notes) Her respect for Negroes came naturally as a result of her having played as a child with the children of the slaves on her grandfather's plantation - Herndon Hill, near Carrollton, Missouri. These further notes from her grand niece Barbara Schweppe Hanes: "Aunt Annie had a colored woman, Mandy, who cooked and cleaned for her and I loved to hear about her life. Don't remember much of her after the war. (WWII) Aunt Annie had only rocking chairs in her living room as she usually had a quilting frame set up there. Her friends in the United Daughters of the Confederacy, War of 1812, Daughters of the Revolution met there. I believe she belonged to every organization in town that a maiden lady could. In the Eastern Star, she knew Mary Jane Truman, the sister of Harry. (Pres. Ca '45-46) She did show a lot of spirit as she got mad at the Baptist Church and became a Christian Scientist. I remember her filling gelatin capsules with garlic to use as a cold remedy. In L.A. today, they advertise such capsules as a cure-all. She had a little Chevy coupe and she and mother (Vera) and Kay (brother)drove all over Missouri in it. Aunt Annie visited us in Fort Scott yearly and mother showed her a grand time. Aunt Annie had a great library in her home with oak glass-fronted bookcases. She usually gave me books for gifts and opened the world of reading to me - for which I am grateful. When I eloped with my high school sweetheart, Aunt Annie sent gifts and was supportive of me until her death.
