Death: Aug. 21, 1931

________________________________________________________________

She was born Ann Elizabeth Williams (called "Annie Eliza" by her contemporaries) to Mary JANE DELOACH and AARON CONE WILLIAMS. Her mother MARY JANE DELOACH was born 06 SEP 1851 (headstone on her grave inaccurately shows the year as 1852), died 22 OCT 1943, married her father, AARON CONE WILLIAMS, born 28 NOV 1847, died 21 OCT 1902, in Baldwin County, Georgia. The location of her father's grave is still unknown at the time of this biography update, 26 MAR 2016. Her mother, MARY JANE DELOACH WILLIAMS is interred in Laurel Grove North Cemetery (Lot # 2525), Savannah, Georgia, with a Headstone Marker. See photo of the headstone marker.
