Anna Marie is the namesake and direct descendant of Maria Anna Elizabeth Staud b. 24 March 1717/18 Zweibrucken at Gimpweiler Germany. She is buried at Bethania, NC. Maria Anna married Jacob Mueller in 1740 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. They came to North Carolina as Moravians to establish the settlement of Bethania. They first arrived at Bethabara.
Anna Marie is a published writer and amateur photographer with her works appearing in websites and special publications. She documents stories about the South and those who garden there.
She is married and has two grown sons. She has been gardening for 40 years. She loves cottage style.
Anna created this website to show you some of her professional work and then document the building of her home and gardens back in 2008. She’s been blogging or doing online garden writing for 10 years. Her blog/website is now a collection of who she is at this point in life. That can sure be many things or just simply sitting on her front porch.
I’m glad you stopped by. I hope you found help, encouragement, and laughter. I will keep this website forever…I will tell my stories…share my failures..and if you find a broken link…I am sorry. Impossible to keep up these days with the changing internet. Also..some of my projects have ended and those featured links or articles are archived by other websites. Neverending…but I’m so glad you tried to read it all. I’m so glad.
