"As a child, Anna Mae spent much of time cooking and working in the field. She had no luck with spinning and weaving, though her mother tried repeatedly to teach her.
The Peoples home was a gathering place for the community. Tom would stand on the porch of Log Hall Church and say, 'Everybody go to Tom Peoples house for dinner. Come on home and we'll have a great pie.' It was not unusual for Anna Mae to bake a dozen apple pies on Saturday in preparation for Sunday dinner.
She loved to go when she was younger. She would grin as she recalled, 'I've let my dishwater get cold many a time if somebody would come by and mention the word GO. I always figured the dishes could wait.' She always loved company even after she was unable to go. She oftened described her satisfaction at having a house full of company by saying she was 'just has happy as a dead pig in hot sunshine.'
Born only 30 years after Lincoln's assassination, she lived to see the modern age of technology. She became the mother and grandmother to four generations of her own descendants, to neighbors, and to her brothers and sisters descendants. For those of us who had the privilege of knowing her, her influence will remain strong. Her pioneer spirit and her strength, typical of many who settled this county, will live on generations to come." Glenda Davis Niswonger
