The subject of this sketch, whose death occurred at her residence, 2216 Grove Avenue, Richmond, Va., March 22, 1912, was born at the family residence, “Oak Grove,” Essex County, Va., March 12, 1858. Her parents were William H. and Sarah Ella Keesee Anderson, of Essex County. She was named after her maternal Grandparents, George and Amanda Clay Keesee, who were influential residents of Pittsylvania County, Va.
Her maternal great-grandfather, Matthew Clay, was a distinguished member of the illustrious family of that name. He served for six years as an officer of the Revolutionary War and for sixteen years ably represented his State in the halls of Congress.
Georgia Amanda Anderson was married August 13, 1895, to G. Brook Doggett of Richmond, Va., and is survived by her husband and one son, David S. Doggett; also by her venerable father and four sisters and one brother — Mrs. Charles H. Hagan, of Richmond; Mrs. C.F. Spindle, of Essex County; Mrs. John Spindle and Mr. W.P. Anderson, of Norfolk; and Miss Clay Anderson, of Suffolk. Mrs. Doggett had been for many years a consistent member of Park Place Methodist Church, Richmond. She was a lover of flowers, and has gone where all is beauty, bright and vernal, and “where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary be at rest.”
“Requiescit in pace.”
