Janie Louise Salisbury Hiott
Birth: Feb. 21, 1895
Colleton County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 7, 1969
Walterboro
Colleton County
South Carolina, USA

Wife of Robert "RP" P. Hiott.
Mother of Cecil Johns, Effie (Johns) Hiott, Janie Mae (Hiott) Gorman and Minnie Martha Lee (Hiott) Andrews.
Grandmother of Arthur Hiott (son of Effie) although he was raised as a son by them after her passing, Linda Laursen Garbett, Robert F. Laursen, Lisa Andrews and Rodney, Rhonda, Debbie and Janie Hiott.
Great grandmother of Matthew Thomas Garbett.

My Mamma fell in love with my Papa but because her father didn't think that she should marry him (at that time) they each ended up each marrying another of which neither marriage lasted very long for different reasons.

"RP" said, at that point, that he would wait forever for her and because she was still in her marriage at the time he would sneak money to her so she would eventually be able to travel to Pennsylvania to be with him. He was living there, at the time, as he traveled around till he found a place that he could work and make a decent living - it happened to be Pennsylvania. Janie had four children with her first husband Mr. Johns. This man did not have the desire to want to provide for his family which is why my mamma decided she'd be better off without him. Two of their children (we believe to have been boys) died shortly after birth and with her remaining two small babies (Effie & Cecil) in tow, she made her way to PA where she and "RP" were then reunited. Martha, and her sister, Janie Mae, were born in Pennsylvania.
Janie always said she loved Pennsylvania so much and preferred it best and I guess that's where I get my TRUE love of PENNSYLVANIA from.

They returned to S.C. a few years later and were rewarded with a beautiful marriage the rest of their lives. They loved each other more than words can say and were inseparable until the day my Mamma left for Heaven after a courageous battle with cancer. They had two beautiful children of their own, Janie and Martha, along with Effie and Cecil, and had so many grandbabies that loved them so.

If you ever have a chance to listen to "Love Me" by Collin Raye then you have heard the song about my Mamma and Papa, it's as if he wrote that song just for them.

"LOVE ME"

I read a note my Grandma wrote back in 1923 -
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me.
He said, "Boy, you might not understand, but a long, long time ago -
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none, but I loved your Grandma so.

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together.
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever.
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead I found this letter, and this is what it said":

"If you get there before I do,
Don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through,
I don't know how long I'll be.

But I'm not gonna let you down.
Darling wait and see,
And between now and then,
Til I see you again,
I'll be loving you
Love, Me."

I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away,
In the doorway of the church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray -
I know I've never seen him cry in all my fifteen years.
But as he said these words to her, his eyes fill up with tears. . .

"If you get there before I do,
Don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through,
I don't know how long I'll be.

But I'm not gonna let you down.
Darling wait and see,
And between now and then,
Til I see you again,
I'll be loving you
Love, Me."
