I think this is Anna in 1920.  This gives some other surnames to work with because she was living with a brother-in-law named Harper Ligon? and his wife Linda [Anna's sister?] and a cousin [of Ligon] named Stella Hines.

I think this may be Anna in 1910, recorded as Annie Levington in Waycross, Georgia

Oh! that's actually Livingston! Thank you for that find. I'm going to try and backtrack and see if I can find that reverend's name, JB Bolwery? and see if there's anymore records of that.

It's probably a long shot, but there was a Harper Ligon in South Carolina in the 1870s who was involved in founding the Silver Spring Baptist Church as an offshoot of the Abel Baptist Church in Clemson.  Maybe he could have been the father of the Harper Ligon in the 1920 census.

I'm not having any luck tracing Harper Ligon.  Maybe Harper was his middle name.

That's rather interesting, even if its a long shot.
Maybe there could be some correlation between the two? Kind of like a branch of the family you think? From what I was seeing is that maybe there were some different variations of spelling that may go off of given how rough the cursive can be on some of these things.

"Anna L. Johnson who was born April in 1876 and died March 5th, 1960."

Do you know where she died?  Was she the Anna Livingston who was in Newark, NJ in 1930 and 1940?

Actually, that may make some sense! I know most of the family resides from Jersey / Pennsylvania so it's a strong possibility that she may have traveled up in her later years to work. I'd say the 1940 is the closest as I had her in the 1930s with her son Will in Georgia Some of her children moved to Centeral Pennsylvania and Mid Jersey and ended up dying there, so I'd say it's her!

I've been looking for her death but no luck, so far.  A death certificate could clarify her date of birth and possibly her exact birthplace and her mother's surname.

Yeah, that could be a very long shot in the dark. I had just heard about that death date, but no one has the certificate so it could be up in the air. Appreciate the effort though! Still garnered some clues, so that's good at least :)
