This is my maternal grandmother, Etta Maude Suggs Sampson. Born 4 December 1880 in Sedalia, Ky. to John Hartford Sugg and Louisa Ann Ford Sugg. She married Henry Lafayette Sampson on 25 May 1904 in Mayfield, Graves County, Ky. A family story is that they drove a buggy to Charleston Mo. and married there on 25 May 1903. I can't confirm this, but have seen the marriage record in the courthouse in Mayfield.
She was the mother of six girls and one boy. The girls were; Hattie Lala, Gracie Jewell, Alma Estherline, Clara B., Frances Mae and Evelyn Elizabeth. The boy was James Franklin.
She died on 13 Mar 1955 in Mayfield, Kentucky. I remember her in her old age as a small, thin woman with long hair that she kept in a "bun" on the back of her head. She always smiled at us kids and sometimes sung old songs to us.
