      Anna had two brothers (or nephews), Joseph and William (or Wilson) who lived at Oswego, NY at the time of the Civil War. They were preachers and corresponded with Percivals in Ohio.
      After her husband's death, Anna moved to DeWitt, Iowa, and lived with her daughter's family, Caroline and George Woodworth.
