From that union four children were born.
Ann's father passed away, but before he died, he told his wife and daughter to join him regularly in listening to the 'Church of God' radio show. James Frierson found comfort in the radio show and told his wife Elease and daughter Ann, that if they ever found this said 'Church of God' they should attend.
After his death, Elease came to NYC and found this church and along with Ann they both joined and were baptized into the 'Church of God' where they remained faithful until their passing. She will be remembered as God fearing, and obedient to her faith.
