Annie Louise Curry-Bradford was also my great grandmother. I only know the stories that my mother used to tell me about her " Granny Bradford." My mother told me that Granny Bradford was a Cherokee Indian. My grandmother, Maude Curry Boyd, looked just like her, all Native American. Her high cheekbones are reflected in my mirror, too. I wish I knew more. My mother dearly loved her granny. My mother was raised on a little farm near Murfreesboro, Arkansas.
