Annie Porter Roberts Hodgdon was a great friend of her sister-in-law, Abby Marble Hammond Roberts - wife of Annie's brother, Gilchrist Porter Roberts. She was known and loved by all of us and was always known as "Aunt Dot." She had a goiter problem and had the accompanying prominent eyes, which were quite fascinating to me as a young child. But her charm and energy took over and soon all else was forgotten. We all adored her. When attempting to fill in the gaps of the family genealogy I was charmed all over again by re-reading all of the letters from her that were saved by my grandmother, Abby. Aunt Dot is unquestionably the author of the famous "Two Days in Pike County" and I'm convinced that the letter was addressed originally to my grandmother.
