Mattie (Tolbert) Anderson was my grandmother, and although she died when I was 6 years old, I never met her. My own mother never knew what had become of Mattie. Be sure to read the bio I wrote for my my mother, Anna Tucker, on her Find a Grave memorial to learn more. I am so happy to have solved the mystery of where Mattie ended up, and I only hope that her later life was full of the peace and happiness that she probably did not experience when she was younger.

I have written a blog entry about my search for Mattie. Please take a look:

Mattie Tolbert, Found at Last!

I received the following information in an email from a librarian at the Salem County (VA) Library on August 13, 2015:

The Roanoke Times newspaper on Sunday, Sept. 26, 1965 had the following obit:
