Annie was born 11 Dec 1865 in Liverpool, England. She emigrated to the United States with Charles and Alice Jane (Jennie) in 1885. They came aboard the Inman Line's City of Chester.
Annie married Duane Robert Linsley about 1887, presumably in Montana. She would have been 22.
Duane was born in 1857 in Wisconsin, the son of Charles Linsley and Filena. (1860) He grew up in Minnesota (1870, 1880) and later moved further west. He was a Grocer his entire life.
Their first child, Hazel May Linsley was born September 1888 in Dakota Territory. Their second child, George Howard Linsley was born August 1889 in Montana.
By 1900 the Linsleys are in Pocatello, Idaho. Then in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1910, 1920 & 1930. Duane died 5 December 1932 in Colorado Springs. What a sad Christmas they must have had that year!
Annie moved to Midwest, Wyoming to live with her daughter, Hazel, who had married Fred Temple. They had two daughters, Dorothy and Charolette. George had married Lillie Bertie and they had two daughters, as well, Nellie and Flora.
Annie died 7 March 1936 in Midwest. She was buried beside her husband in Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs.
This picture was taken in Colorado Springs at the Garden of the Gods (did you know the Lone Ranger Westerns were shot here?) when Charles Taylor (Jr.), his wife, Anna Marie Helland and daughter Hilda Virginia (Ginnie) went to visit them. The other children were already married by the time of this visit which was around 1930
Annie's death certificate lists her mother's name as Marian DeBarcy born in France. Her father was Charles Taylor born in England. Each census lists Annie's mother as born in France and speaks French and her father as born in England. Both of which corroborate Charles Taylor (Jr.)'s information.
