Tobacco was one of the crops that John and his family farmed in Metamora. It was in this barn that the tobacco would hang for drying.
Ance's wife, Millie Francis Sandlin, was born out of wedlock to John Glenn and Sarah Sandlin. It is for this reason that she carried her mother's surname before her marriage. She was a strong Christian woman who gave birth to eleven children and raised ten of them into adulthood. She chewed tobacco, which was partly responsible for her decaying teeth and it is the reason you rarely see her smiling in photographs of her. She could read, but could not write. When she would receive a letter she would read it and ask one of her daughters (usually Cora) to help her write the response. So, when you see images of her letters, keep in mind that while they are her words, they are not in her handwriting. Trips to Grandma's house was common for Millie's dozens of grandchildren. After suffering from a series of strokes, she passed away on June 16, 1955.
