Today is Grandma Rachel’s Birthday Anniversary

Ninety-eight years ago today, in Iola, Grimes County, Texas, a baby girl was born. Her name was Rachel Faye Sammon and she was to become my grandmother.

She was the 6th child and 4th daughter of  John Ellis and Lillian Priscilla (Davis) Sammon. She married my Grandpa Claud in 1934, at the age of 15, and then gave birth to her first child, my mom, in 1936 at age 18. Unfortunately, Grandma died in 1993. I think of her a lot and miss her still.
