Anna Elberta Austin was my Mom's maternal grandmother; my great grandmother. She died when I was almost four, on August 12th, 1963. She was born on October 30th sometime between 1868 and 1871. She lied about her age her entire life, and even erased her year of birth, and those of the two children before her, in her parents records.I can tell you is that she was a formidable woman.
I recently visited her grave in Santa Monica, CA. I wanted to pay my respects to her, and document where she is buried.
