    Family genealogies I find have Annie's name a Opal Annie, though the 1900 census has O as her middle initial.

    There is a one-year discrepancy, as happens very often in the 1900 census, between the census birth date and family sources in genealogies.  The census reports that Annie was born in Mar 1898, but family sources report the birth was 7 March 1897.  Her age reported in the censuses matches 1898 better.
