In Memory of Pauline Croley by David Tyrone Crowley

Ida Pauline Croley was born on March 12, 1922, at Kewauhatchee, near the town of Columbiana, in Shelby County, Alabama. She was the third of three children born to Thomas Crowley (1896-1949) of Shelby County, Alabama, and Mettie Viola Pipkin (1896-1939) of Dodge County, Georgia. Her sisters were Edna Croley (Dec 1916 ? May 1917) and Mildred Irene Croley (Sep 1919 ? Jun 1999).

Pauline grew up in Sylacauga, Alabama, and on 4 Aug 1941 married David Hilton Edmondson of Coosa County, Alabama. They had two children: Janice Anita Edmondson, born in 1942, and David Hilton Edmondson III, born in 1945. Pauline?ston died in June 1979.

Until 1992, Pauline lived alone at 611 Dairyland Road, near what was at one time the diary and chicken operations property of Avondale Mills, which was in turn part of the ?Mill Village? established by Avondale Mills early in the twentieth century. She was visited regularly by family and attended church at the First Free Will Baptist Church, on Twin Street near her home.

On 31 Dec 1992, Pauline married Robert Otis Brand, of Chilton County, Alabama. Otis passed away 10 Feb 2001, leaving Pauline alone again at 611 Dairyland Road, where they had lived eight happy years together.

The last months of Pauline?s life were spent at the home of her daughter, Janice, and son-in-law, Wayne Blount, where she enjoyed the company of Wayne and Janice?s grandchildren.

Pauline?s last days were spent at Carraway Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama, watched over faithfully by Janice and Wayne. A few days before she left us, she had the happiness of seeing and holding the tiny hand of her six-month-old great-granddaughter, Abigail, daughter of Crystal, who is the daughter of son David Hilton Edmondson III and his wife Sharon, all making the trip from their homes in South Carolina.

At Curtis and Son Funeral Home in Sylacauga, on 9 Feb 2007, Pauline was visited and remembered by many family members and friends. Pauline wore a red dress with black trim chosen by Janice, who also asked that her mother?s appearance reflect her everyday wishes: no makeup, no jewelry except for her wedding ring, and her hair combed back in a simple style. Pauline?s family and friends laughed, cried, and remembered ?Momma?, ?Polly?, and ?Aunt Pauline? with great affection and pleasure.

From Fayette Facts, XVII, #3 Stonecipher Family which was taken from "The Stonecipher Tree" by Mary Underwood:
Joseph Stonecipher, the eldest son of John Henry and Ellen Dortch Stonecipher, born in Culpeper County, Virginia in 1754, went to Wilkes County, North Carolina in 1773. He volunteered there for duty during the Revolutionary War. His first term was for three months and he was later drafted for another three months. He was in the Battle of Cox's Mill and King's Mountain, among others. Joseph married Salome Ross in 1781 at Golden Grove on the banks of the Watauga River in Wilkes County, North Carolina. She may have come from Pennsylvania with her family. Joseph and Salome removed to Tennessee ca 1812 and he died there in Morgan County, July 30, 1847. Salome died some time after that. They were the parents of eight children.

Memories from a time gone by
by Lindsey Holland The Daily Home

Jettie Bates stands beside the tree in her yard that was planted in 1934, two years before she was born. Four generations of children have climbed in the branches. Bob Crisp

OAK GROVE - It was quiet, like daybreak on a cool fall morning in the mountains, with the sun radiating over the tops of the trees, lining the tips of the mountains. It was quiet, with fields of cotton ready to be picked. Oak Grove was quiet ? before the highway came in ? a sound only a small Southern town can capture if you relive the memories from some 50 years ago.

If the tree could talk it would tell how Jettie Bates was born in the front room of the house, or how Mama broke the chicken?s neck and proceeded to cook it for dinner, or how Jettie?s brother, Leon Dale, chased her up the tree the time she rode his new bike.

?Mama, tell Jettie not to touch it,? he said.

Jettie said back then her mama worked in the cotton mill. The city bus would come through and pick up the mill workers and bring them back at night. As soon as the bus left and Mama was out of sight, Jettie headed for the garage.

?I took the bicycle and we were playing cops and robbers,? Jettie remembered. ?I slipped it back in the garage. But he found that bicycle and he ran me down and that?s where I hid in that tree. He like to beat me to death.?

The tree sits in front of Jettie?s childhood home. Her father planted the tree in 1934.

?The tree is two years older than I am,? she said. ?The tree has four generations of kids climbing in it. I could hide in that tree and nobody could find me. I could skimmy up it back then.?

Jettie was born on a Sunday morning in 1936 in the front room of her home, the home that was built in 1930 and has the immense tree in the yard. An African-American woman and her father delivered Jettie while the rest of the neighborhood attended church. The church, Oak Grove Methodist, is within walking distance of Jettie?s home. ?I grew up in that church,? she said.

It just seems like it was so much quieter back then, Jettie recalled of growing up in Oak Grove.

?There were 10 of us when my daddy moved here,? she said. ?He moved here in 1933 and they had seven boys and three girls. Only four of us are living. There wasn?t any of this,? Jettie said as she extended her arm and pointed to the highway, pointed to the paved roads, and to the convenience stores. ?It was just an old dirt road.?

Country Folk

?It was an ideal place to live,? Jettie recalled of Oak Grove some 60 years ago. She remembers the sounds of the town before the four lane came in. She remembers no traffic, no highway, no paved roads, she just remembers country folk.

Country folk like those neighbors who would bring meals to your home when someone died. Country folk like the neighbors who would gather for congregation when someone fell ill. Jettie remembers country folk who could leave their doors unlocked at night and country children who could play outside until it was time for dinner. She remembers country folk who, when they told their children to go to bed they immediately obeyed. She remembers country folk who kept their kids in line, like her mama.

?She had a big switch, and I mean a big switch, and my daddy had a razor strap,? she said. ?He kept them boys in line. I was the youngest so I didn?t get too many whoopin?s. I saw what they did and I wouldn?t do it. I saw the results and I thought, ?I?m not going to do all that.??

Jettie remembers living in Oak Grove when there were no department stores to shop at. ?My mama would sew to make clothes,? she said. In the town of Oak Grove there were no department stores and no grocery stores.

?We never did go without anything to eat,? Jettie said. ?We had our own hogs, they?d slaughter them. My mother would churn and churn to make buttermilk. My mama would take a chicken and ring its neck and she?d draw a line around it. That chicken never would flop out of that line, it just died. She would put it down in hot water and pluck it.?

Back then, you could ask anybody for help and they?d drop what they were doing and come help, Jettie said.

?It was totally different. If we had the people that lived here years ago we?d have it made.?

Surviving Storms

The tree in Jettie Bates? yard has survived many storms. Neighbors often inquire about the threat of tornadoes and the damage the tree may cause, but Jettie, like the great tree that stands in her yard, has weathered all the storms she has encountered in life.

Jettie has been married to her husband for 53 years. The two met at the National Guard Armory in Birmingham. After a bit of relocating, the family settled back in Oak Grove after their second son was born. They settled in the same house with the tree in the front yard, the same house in which she was brought into the world.

?Well I tell ya,? I was in the hospital when Kennedy was assassinated,? she said, giving birth to one of her children. ?I remember that well.?

One of Jettie?s sons followed in his father?s footsteps. Fighting in the military, he got sick from chemicals and was soon sent home. Nine days later, two girls and a wife were without a father and husband.

?It like to have broke my heart,? she said. ?That is the only thing that has really got next to me, so it left me with two boys and two girls.?

Years later, heartache approached Jettie again. Her father was 92 when he died after a fall.

?My mama said when we told her, ?Well, I?m not going to live without him,?? she said. ?She died three weeks later. They had been married 70 years and had 10 children. They had numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.?

Jettie said her mother died from a broken heart. She was sitting on the porch in a rocking chair and silently died.

The sounds of Oak Grove

Jettie said when they started putting the highway in, everybody almost suffocated from all the dirt. Now she locks her doors at night and she no longer hears the quiet. Instead, she hears the cars from the four lane all night.

Most of the time now, Jettie said, your neighbors are strangers and you don?t even know who they are.

?It don?t seem like that?s right,? she said.

But Jettie said she thinks the people who live in Oak Grove enjoy it.

Although you may have to lock your doors at night and although you may not be as friendly as you should be with your neighbors, Southern hospitality is still alive and well, especially in Oak Grove.

The highway carries hundreds of people to their destinations daily, those who are heading to work, those who are visiting friends, or those who are running a few errands, but never those who choose not to take the highway. Those who choose to travel the back roads may just find the quiet Oak Grove has known all too well.

The female listed under John looks like June or Jane. It's probably John's wife. However her name has been given later as Martha Ellen Pruitt. Willie, of course, was William, Lump was a nickname for Alonza and Martha was called Sis or Sissie. The biggest puzzle here is that the two youngest children, Wilson and Mary Adelaide are not listed with the family. We can't find them with any other family, either. The proof that they actually are children of Wilson and Elmira is the family Bible owned by Philip Burrough. Also on the 1900 census, Elmira states she was the mother of seven children with five living. John had died a young man and Wilson died in 1899. All children accounted for. Another interesting fact here is in 1869 Wilson Royal had four children in the poor school. John, Thomas and Willie were all past school age leaving Lon, Martha, Wilson and Mary Adelaide.
1880 - The family has not been found on the 1880 census. We keep trying, but so far, no luck. William Ransom Royal, Wilson's brother, was living in St. Clair County, Alabama in 1880. Wilson and Elmira were probably there as well, but not necessarily so.

They had been married 52 years. Elmira was the mother of seven children with five living.
They seem to disappear after this. They are not found on the Texas death index which starts in 1908 leading us to believe they died sometime between late 1900 and 1908. It's possible they came back to Alabama, but at their age unlikely, 70s being much older then than it is now. Their youngest child, Mary Adelaide, who married George Harless, moved to Texas around the same time.

GADSDEN - Isaac Wood Williams, 88, will have his Life's Celebration Service on Tuesday, March 29 at 1 P.M. at Collier Butler Chapel with interment immediately following at Crestwood Mausoleum. the Reverend Thomas Hilyer will be officiating. Visitation was held from 6 P.M. until 8 P.M. on Monday evening at Collier Butler Funeral Home, Collier-Butler Funeral and Cremation Services Directing.

Isaac Wood Williams was born November 4, 1916, in Hollins, Alabama to Elvie Parzettie Williams and Edward Barnabus Williams. He is one of seven children and is the last of his siblings to cross the river from this mortal life to life everlasting. Mr. Williams graduated from B.B. Comer High School in 1941, and worked for various companies throughout his life, including Georgia Marble Company and Avondale Mills. He lived most of his life in the Sylacauga area and was a member of The Hollins Baptist Church.

After retirement, he moved to Gadsden, Alabama, to be near his children that had migrated to the area over the years. Mr. Williams loved his wife, Lamurel. The relationship they had was one of working together to raise their five children and to instill a love of God, each other, their fellow man, and to enjoy one's work and this beautiful Earth that we are all blessed with. One would have to grown up with this family to truly understand the love they have for each other and the family leadership that Mr. Williams provided.

Mr. Williams enjoyed a simple but good life. He was a devoted husband and Christian. His favorite book was the Bible and he enjoyed its messages immensely. When his children were young, the family would sit around in the evening and read stories to each other from The Bible. He would take time to share the true meaning of the words they read. Gardening was something he enjoyed from childhood until he could no longer perform this age-old method of obtaining food. He made sure his sons understood the methodology involved in the gardening process and he taught them well. As a matter of fact, he had one of the cleanest vegetable gardens that you have ever seen (compliments of three growing boys.)

Mr Williams has passed on, but his family cherishes the many memories of his life on Earth and anticipates the future when this family will be together again as one. Mr. Williams is survived by his beloved wife, Lamurel Hazel Williams; daughters, Patricia (Winston) Palmer, Easley, SC, and Kathi Davis, Atlanta, Ga; sons, Michael (Barbara Williams, Calera, Ala., and Kenneth (Betsy) Williams and Keith (Kay) Williams, Southside, Al; ten grandchildren, Tracie Sorgenfrei, Michelle Mayne, Chris Palmer, Kenneth Williams, Jr., Erin Barnett, Daniel Williams, Jennifer Davis, Leslie Williams, Ike Williams and Anna Williams; and seven great-grandchilden, Zac Mayne, Brooke Sorgenfrei, Michael Mayne, Heather Palmer, Matthew Williams, Savanna Williams, and Meghan Barnett.
