My name is wayne saunders. Theodore shelton cherry was my great great great grandfather on my mothers side. When i was a boy, i would go and stay with my great grandmother, Annie Lovett. She was one of grandpas children. I remember her telling me the story of how grandpa was shot and killed.. my mother remembers going to grandma aurilias house in dr inlet f. Mama has always told me about how her,my grandmoth and great grandmother would walk through the woods to mama cherries old house. Mama said she would be sitting on the porch late in the evening when they would go.dipping her honey bee snuff. Mama always told about how far mama cherrie could spit from the rockin chair out in the yard. They always told that after grandpa got killed,mama cherrie lived alone,and that she wasnt afraid of anything. My grannie,shelt cherries grand daughter is 92 years old today. Although grannie has to be taken care of in a nursing home,shes in fairly good health for her age. She can still tell you the whole story how my grandpa cherrie was killed while serving the people of clay county fl.
