      Cathie Sweat Dean contributed the following account:

      Annie Adeline Hendley was the fourth child
      of George and Angie Ronie Hendley and she was
      my great-grandmother.
      There was a gentleman named Sam McNure
      whose family lived in Edgefield County, SC.
      Sam left his family in SC and went to Georgia,
      looking for work. He found work on a farm in
      Garfield, Georgia, where he met and fell in
      love with Annie Hendley. Sam tried to take
      Annie back to SC, but she would not go, so he
      made his home in Garfield and married his
      beloved Annie. Eventually his family moved to
      Emanuel County from SC also.
      Sam and Annie worked together on a farm
      where all four of their children were born
      and grew up helping with farm chores.
      Eventually they were able to buy their own
      farm, but soon after that Sam became ill with
      stomach cancer. While he was ill, Annie
      continued working the farm mostly on her own
      because by this time her children were grown
      and out on their own. After Sam died, Annie
      decided the farm was just too much for her
      so she sold it and went to live with her
      children. She lived with Vera for a while,
      but ended up living with Ila Mae for many
      years. In her later years, Annie developed
      arteriosclerosis and required a lot of care
      on Ila Mae's part.
      Sam and Annie's children were Vera, Homer,
      Lois and Ila Mae.
      Their grandchildren were Bettie Ann, Joyce,
      Faye, LaJune and Anne (all girls). When the
      girls were young they looked forward to
      visiting with Granny and Grandaddy McNure on
      their summer vacations. They also looked
      forward to seeing each other at the farm.
      Their parents put them on a train and sent
      them to Garfield; Joyce and Faye from Augusta,
      LaJune and Anne from Miami and Bettie Ann
      from Ellerby, NC. Their Aunt Maggie would meet
      them at the train depot and walk them to the
      farm. The story was told that Sam and Annie
      had a young bull that the girls teased so
      much that the bull became mean and would chase
      anyone who came near it. The youngest, Faye,
      was terrified of chickens and she would sit
      on the porch and fuss at the rooster when it
      crowed, "wooter, better shut up, I ki you."
      Going to Garfield was the highlight of the
      summer for the McNure grandchildren.

      Sam died on 16 July 1943 in Garfield, Emanuel County.

      Annie died on 30 May 1972 in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. Both were buried at Hebron Church Cemetery in Garfield, Emanuel County.
