|Carrie Melinda Davis Ganus and|
son Emmett Ganus
Phoebe Johnson was among those blessed to have lived near some of her extended Ganus family. While she never knew her grandfather, Roderick Monroe Ganus who had passed away in 1932, she did know his wife, her Grandma Carrie Melinda Davis. Carrie was born 19 August 1886 in Hanceville, Alabama and was the daughter of Rolen Lee Davis and Mary Ann Watson. Roderick's brother, Bobby had married Stella May Montgomery, who was born 21 Jul 1879 in Missouri and was the daughter of Joshua Montgomery and Nancy Jane Woods. After the deaths of their husbands, Grandma Carrie and "Aunt" Stella lived in a duplex next door to each other.
I am grateful for the following story that Phoebe recently shared with me. Not only has it greatly impacted her life and her children's lives, but I believe that sharing it will impact all who read it. Thank you Phoebe!
