About Annie R Visanska

Annie, the oldest daughter of Moses and Eva Leah was born on May 19, 1841 and died Nov. 04, 1888 at 48. She married her 1st cousin G.A. Visanska (Eva Lea’s brother, Aaron’s son) on Dec, 18, 1860 and lived about a mile from her parents in Due West, SC. G.A. was known as Gershon in Poland, but changed his name to George Albert in America. Mostly, he was called “G.A.” GA lived from Feb 14, 1837 until Nov 13, 1915.

Tragically, during a diphtheria epidemic in Abbeville, SC, Annie sent her 2 small children to her sister, Rebecca (Granny) Rosenberg in Greenwood. The horse pulling her buggy on the way to Greenwood to see her children became frightened at the approach to an unfinished covered bridge and began to run backwards. The buggy and the horse fell off backwards at a point where the bridge was 10 feet high. Annie fell on her head onto a piece of timber and died. She is buried in Columbia South Carolina.
