      Notes 
      • "Anna Sanders 15 years old was adopted by George Ament and his wife Leah in 1860. This info is stated in the family Bible." (cadamsesq on Ancestry.com) On the 1850 census in Lafourche Parish, Anna and her half-sister Audelia are living with "Widow Thomkins," who must be Leah Tompkins, the wife of George Ament. Apparently Ament was her second husband, married later in life. On the 1860 census in Assumption Parish, we find George Ament (age 68) and Lea Ament (age 63). Lewis Sanders, Anna's half-brother, is living with them. Did the Aments adopt Anna later that year?
      • Family stories tell us that Anna was a school teacher and her son Wood built her a one room school house on the bayou side near the sight of today's Frank's supermarket. Anna taught young children for pennies a day. She was described as a petite woman with a light complexion. She enjoyed needlework, tatting, knitting and crocheting and loved to read novels. Anna wrote letters for many in the community who could not read or write. The family had to follow proper etiquette at the dinner table which was always set with proper place settings. She also taught her children never to waste anything; everything must be put to good use. The Lathrops were the only Protestant family in the area. After Andrew's death, Anna had eight of her children baptized in the Catholic Church. In another story Anna told her family during the Civil War she hid supplies under her long skirt and brought them to Confederate soldiers. (Lathrop reunion booklet)
