Gincy Wheatley Anderson, JeannetteWheatley Forrester, Della Wheatley Cox Cornett772 viewsSitting on Mom's right is her next older sister, Virginia Malley Wheatley Anderson or Aunt Gincy as we always heard her referred to. She and Uncle Lee lived in Major, VA for a long time. Mom's other sister is on her left, Cynthia Della Wheatley Cox Cornett, or Aunt Dell, Mom's oldest sister. She lived in Fox, VA with her husband, Isom Cox, and their five or six children. Much later she married a Cornett. I don't know a thing about that marriage except that Aunt Dell lived in Sparta, NC then.
