Annie C. Moates, the youngest child of Francis and Mary Moates, was born in St. Andrews June 19, 1866. Born in a small commmunity where sailing vessels were the major means of transportation, in her eleventh year, she lost seven family members with the sinking of the Amelia and her fathers horse accident. The overwhelming sadness has a lasting effect, and her life was made more difficult by asthma. The Moates were a close family. In 1910 she married Charles T. Porter and they had four children - the youngest born when she was 45! Annie died in 1961 at the home of her daughter in Alabama, but she is buried in the Porter plot in Greenwood Cemetery, Panama City, Florida.
