Audrey: Anna Maria’s mother, Ann Almy Tarbox Spencer, was kind of a nut, a high ﬂyer. She was always going places and gallivanting around. When Richard Anthony Spencer, Anna Maria’s father died at age twenty-seven years, Richard Anthony’s sister Audra took care of Anna Maria (pronounced Anna Mar-eye-ah). Richard Anthony’s sister, our Aunt Mandy, and Anna Maria were good friends as there was only eight years difference in their age.
