Summary: Big Anne's Childhood
Anne Huntley Hardison was born on December 16, 1919 in Carter's Cre
Tennessee. She was born at home, and the attending physician was her grandfathe
Hardison. Her birth certificate reveals some interesting facts. First of all, someon

Anne was the fourth child in her family, but since the oldest child was stillborn,
she was greeted by only two siblings: a brother, about six at the time, James Hayden, and
the ultimate Big Sister, Jane McKay. Since "Tutter" is likely an infant's attempt to
sister, Big Anne may have given her sister a life-long nickname.
