Heather: How is it that Anna Mirah* has Anna Maria written on her tombstone and in John Johnson Spencer’s Civil War pension plan, her name is also spelled with a “Y” as Anna Myriah?
Audrey: I never remember seeing it with a Y! All I ever heard was Anna Mirah. The writing on stones was not professional. I don’t ever remember seeing a “y”, I was 1-1/2 years old when she died. I walked around the casket. I couldn’t see in but I walked around it.
