I wish I had known my grandfather’s youngest sister. Researching Aunt Lillie has been interesting and somewhat frustrating.
I don’t yet have all the main pieces to her story, but I’ve determined that she married five times (at least). I haven’t located records for all of those marriages or even the first name of one husband. Lillie Vashti Lanier Walls Smith Roberts Manning Dixon lived in Atlanta most of her adult life but also lived in New Orleans for several years in the 1930s.
