"...[Curtis Franklin Batson's] age seems right; his records show him as having been born in 1910, however, he claimed to have been born in 1909 and that the dates were mixed up. He never had a birth recorded until 1941 when he had to sign up for the draft in WWII. Of course he then had to get signatures to verify records, and many of them were guessed at. You know grandmother [Annie Dubose Batson] was a midwife, but very few records were kept back then. Grandmother could neither read nor write, she signed her name with an X. Did you know that her father was a French trapper and later a school teacher, who came through North Carolina and took a Cherokee wife, then moving on into Alabama? At one time they lived in Rome, Alabama, and also Atmore, Alabama. Grandmother had many of the Cherokee ways. She was the only "Doctor" our family knew until sometime in the 40s. I am sorry to say that I did not realize the importance of some of the herbs, salves, and other remedies that she practiced. Grandfather George's [George Washinton Batson's] father also was school teacher in Andalusia, Alabama. He served in the Confederate Army and lost an arm."
