My maternal grandmother was Vera Anderson Anderson Poole. She is pictured here between the ages of one and two [circa 1915] in the middle of her parents Parley Anderson and Hattie Rozella Charlotta Jane Tuttle Anderson.

From her own words, Vera recalled, "I was born on 11/12/13 in Glenwood, Utah to parents I have always loved dearly. I don't remember much about Glenwood, but I do remember, although very young, my younger brother, Dee being born.
My father had a large herd of sheep, and I spent much of my young life with my Dad and Mother with the sheep on the mountains.
I had five sisters and four brothers and a Grandpa who lived with my family. My grandfather lived with us until I was ten. He was as much a part of my life as my parents--really a third parent. You know we lived up here on the ranch (in Annabella). He never lived with a wife while I knew him even though two were living for a while. We [she and her sisters] have decided maybe he couldn't since his first wife was dead, and he wouldn't be legally married to the other two."
