In the South, a well brought up lady or gentleman would be able to answer that to at least four generations back.
Today, we went to Bethany Cemetery in search of some Nimitz kin. We did not locate them, but had an enjoyable sunny afternoon wandering the old cemetery and it's even older neighbor, Magnolia Cemetery.
I was doing some poking around, hoping to find some sort of hint as to where the family plot may be located within the cemetery when I stumbled across a photograph of my great-great-grandfather, Edward Wilson Sanders.
I have a copy of a letter written by my great-great-greatgrandmother to her daughter, who was married to Edward Sanders, just days before my great-grandmother, Anna Sanders, was born.
What a joy to find this photograph.
Last photograph on the page. I believe the second to last would be my great-great uncle.
