Wife of John Pinkney Holbert
Daughter of Alexander Thomas Elliott and JoAnna Przyborowski

Unfortunately I never knew my great grandma Anna, so I'm passing on some history left by two of her granddaughters.

Written by Lois Holbert Corn, granddaughter of Anna C. Elliott Holbert:
"Grandma Anna (Elliott) Holbert was real refined. All the Elliott's were. Grandma talked like a real southern lady. She called butter, "buttah". Her parents were "Mother and Father", not Mamma and Pappa or ma and paw!
She used to carry a hammer and nails in her apron pocket. She could build as well as a man. One time Grandpa bought some wood to finish the walls in a part of the house and left it standing up against the porch outside. He went away to work somewhere in a nearby county for a few days. Well, grandma had been wanting a new floor in her kitchen. She took that wood and built her a floor for her kitchen. When grandpa got back he asked where the wood was. She pointed to the floor and said, "Thah it is. Ah built us a kitchen floah".
Grandma attended the Morse Grove Methodist Church in Hendersonville. She went there because her father, Alexander Elliott and her mother JoAnna did, and they're both buried there. Her father was the first person to be buried in that cemetery. He's buried under the big Oak tree in the front yard. Her mother JoAnna is buried beside him."

Told by Cyrene Holbert Levi, granddaughter of Anna C. Elliott Holbert:

"Grandma Holbert was the kindest person I've ever known. She would save old clothes to make quilts for the orphan's home. She was always taking care of sick people. Once a neighbor contacted tuberculosis and as it was very contagious back then, other neighbors were afraid to go near him. Grandma took care of that man. She took him food and nursed him when no one else would.

How Grandma Anna could dance! Everybody loved to see her dance.
She could do the polka so smooth that you could put a glass of water on her head, and not a drop would spill! Now, the Polka is a Polish dance, so I guess she must have inherited that from her mamma JoAnna and her Grandpaw Josef Przyborowski.

Grandma was so creative. Every spring when the weather started getting warm she would cover her fire screen with pictures from magazines. One year it was flowers. I remember another year she covered it with
pictures of babies.

Grandma was bedridden for a long time before she died. I never heard her complain. She was always so sweet and cheerful. While she was sick she would sit up in bed and read detective magazines. Grandma, like her mother before her, was a school teacher. She sure was loved by everybody."
