DINNIES, Anna Peyre, poet, born in Georgetown, South Carolina, in 1816. Her father, W. F. Shackelford, an eminent lawyer, removed to Charleston, where the Misses Ramsay educated her. At the age of fourteen she married John C. Dinnies, of St. Louis, Missouri, where she resided until 1846, when the family removed to New Orleans, La. Before her marriage she had written many of the poems that she published later under the pen name " Moina," among them the "Charnel Ship." In 1854 she contributed to the "Catholic Standard," a weekly edited by her husband, a series of didactic articles entitled "Rachel's What Not." She contributed also to the literary periodicals of the south. In 1847 she published a collection of one hundred poems, arranged in twelve groups, typifying bouquets of flowers, under the title of "The Floral Year" (Boston). The domestic affections form the subject of most of her verses.
