By Dorothy M. Humphreys

Anna Eliza Sanders was born 7 May 1864 on a farm near Round Rock. She was the daughter of Robert Peter Sanders and Sarah Susannah Levy. She attended a girls school at Old Round Rock and was well educated for that period. She was a beautiful girl with dark brown hair, brown eyes and fair skin; small in size. 

On 6 October 1886 she was married to George R. Flinn, son of Dr. J. C. and Susan Francis Flinn of Round Rock. Their ceremony was performed by Reverend John Hudson of the Presbyterian Church. The young couple moved to a farm he owned near Georgetown, where their first two children, Ruby and Georgia, were born. During this time her husband, George, was studying medicine After he finished, they moved to Hutto where he owned and operated a drugstore.

Anna was kept busy as a housewife and mother. It was here in 1893 that their third and last child, Robert Carroll Flinn, was born. After the birth of Robert, her health was bad. She was very artistic, making many pieces of beautiful needlework and lace In 1903 the family moved to Pauls Valley, Indian Territory, where George engaged in the drug and cattle businesses until 1904, when they moved to the town of Wanette in Oklahoma Territory. They lived there until Will died 24 March 1931, and Anna followed her dear husband 19 November 1931. They are buried side by-side in the Wanette Cemetery.
