LAMUREL CRAFT WILLIAMS

GADSDEN ? Lamurel Craft Williams, 80, will have her Life's Celebration Service on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 9 a.m. at Collier Butler Chapel with interment immediately following at Crestwood Mausoleum. The the Rev. Thomas Hilyer will be officiating. Visitation will be at from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at Collier Butler Funeral Home. Collier-Butler Funeral and Cremation Services will be directing. Her grandsons will serve as pallbearers. Lamurel Craft Williams was born Feb. 13, 1926, in Coffee County, AL to Shelly and Lois Craft. She lived most of her life in the Sylacauga area and was a member of The Hollins Baptist Church. She retired from Avondale Mills in Sylacauga and moved to Gadsden, AL to be near her children and grandchildren that had migrated to this area over the years. Mother loved her family and was loved by them. If there are saints on this sweet earth then our Mother is certainly one of them. She loved her husband Isaac deeply. He passed away last March and she missed him immensely. God has prepared a place for them and she will be able to be with him forever. At some point, all of her children and grandchildren will be with them to enjoy eternity together and will have no worries. Growing up and living life being associated with a sweet Mother and Grandmother like ours is something that is difficult to share. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. She would literally give you the shirt off her back if she felt you needed it. Avarice and greed were not in her vocabulary -- only love for and sharing with her fellow beings. Sunday dinners were especially happy occasions for all of us. You could call it a feast. She could cook a good Southern dinner that would make your mouth water just thinking about it. The number of preachers, relatives, and people just passing through that we had at our house for Sunday dinner is certainly a big one. She loved preparing it and sharing it with anyone that wanted to "stop" by. She grew up on a farm and assisted her family toward providing the necessities of life. She never complained about what she had, never complained about what she didn't get. She was happy and content with whatever this earth provided and never thought twice about it. She was happy when good happened to other people and she was there to assist when it didn't. As a child, I remember, she would look at all five of us children and give us the biggest smile in the world. It was like an angel descended on this earth to take care of five of the strangest kids that anyone could ever assemble. Her warmth and glow was with her until the end. Only last week we celebrated her 80th birthday. Most of her children and grandchildren were there and she was so happy. The twinkle in her eyes was there and she seemed content. Our Mother and Grandmother is gone but her love, her life, and her caring will continue with us until we, too, cross that river and feast with her again. Ms. Williams, our Mother and Grandmother, has passed on, both her families cherish the many memories of the love she shared. Ms. Williams is survived by daughters, Patricia (Winston) Palmer of Easley, S.C., and Kathi Davis of Atlanta, GA; sons, Michael (Barbara) Williams of Calera, Kenneth (Betsy) Williams and Keith (Kay) Williams of Southside; 11 grandchildren, Tracie (Dale) Sorgenfrei, Michelle (Bill) Mayne, Chris (Michele) Palmer, Kenneth (Wynn) Williams Jr., Erin (Greg) Barnett, Daniel Williams, Jennifer Davis, Leslie Williams, Ike Williams, and Anna Williams; and eight great grandchildren, Zak Mayne, Brooke Sorgenfrei, Michael Mayne, Heather Palmer, Matthew Williams, Savanna Williams, Meghan Barnett, and Ava Barnett. She was one of seven children and is survived by her sisters, Judith Hall of Gadsden, and Betty Garshman of Calgary, Alberta, Canada; and by her brother, Charles Craft of Attalla; and by numerous nieces and nephews.

The birth date on Absoleum Stonecypher's headstone is a bit unclear. It looks like 24 September 1769, but could be 21 September 1769.

Excerpt from the book, "In the Footsteps Of Davy Crockett" by K. Randell Jones:

On another occasion, after the Crocketts had moved to a different farm, young David witnessed his father tend to a man, Absalom Stonecipher, who had been accidentally shot. Joseph Hawkins, the brother of Rebecca Hawkins Crockett, was hunting one day when he mistook Stonecipher, who was picking grapes, for a deer. Stonecipher was carried to the nearby home of Samuel Humbert, after which David's father passed a silk handkerchief completely through the wound, which was believed to clean it. David was amazed enough to recall the incident over 40 years later in his autobiography. Stonecipher recovered and later married Humbert's daughter, Sarah.

The Bowman's are included in this genealogy because they seemed to have stayed in close contact with my grandparents. All my life I could remember hearing the name, "Rennie Bowman". That is very possibly incorrect spelling, but it's the way it's spelled on the back of our family pictures.

William Royal's family is another whose names I grew up hearing, so my grandmother must have kept in touch often. William married Eliza Bowman, Rennie's mother. I feel the families might have known each other before the marriage, but the friendship with Rennie, his wife and children could have been cultivated afterward. Certainly, it would have been exciting at that time to have friends who lived in another state, as they lived in Georgia.

Eliza Bowman had other children, I'm sure, but I haven't pursued this since Rennie and his family are the only ones we have pictures of and the only ones of which I remember Grandma speaking.

But with Jesus we know she is sleeping, then why should we not be glad.
Mr. Robert D. Smith and children wish to thank their many friends and neighbors for the kindness shown them during their recent bereavement, also for the beautiful floral offerings. A precious one from us is gone, a voice we loved is stilled, a vacant place is in their home that never can be filled.

There were more children to this marriage but at this time I don't have them.

There were other children to this marriage not listed in "Hortons in America". I believe Henry and Daniel to be two children as I have always thought them to be brothers. Others have added to that list John, Amos and Rebecca. They are all of the same generation and all lived in Hanging Rock, SC. My gut feeling is that Henry was the father of Elijah, my gggrandfather.

From "Hortons in America":
"(Joshua and Sarah) emigrated to South Carolina before the Revolutionary War."

Thomas Hand enlisted in the 5th Infantry, Company G in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, 4 August 1862. He was a provost guard which is, by definition from the Random House Unabridged Dictionary, "A detachment of soldiers assigned to police duties under the provost marshal." (Pronounced proh'-voh)

Appears on a receipt roll for clothing November 17, 1862.

November 27, 1862 was admitted to the C.S.A. General Hospital in Charlottesville, Virginia for Rhemu. ??? (Cbio??) and was returned to duty January 11, 1863.

He was admitted again (C.S.A. General Hospital) on January 30, 1863 and returned to duty April 16, 1863. Complaint: Anasarca which is generalized massive swelling.

On May 3, 1863 he was transferred to Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. The disease, written on the form looks like Ascistis or Clscitis. The "citis" is very clear. He was returned to duty May 16, 1863

Admitted June 17, 1864 with another impossilble to read disease. Looks like Debilitis. "litis" is the only clear part of the word. Returned to duty June 18, 1864.

Appeared on the hospital muster roll of General Hospital in Liberty Virginia, May and June of 1863.

During the third quarter of 1863, his receipt for clothing states he was absent from the company and "articles of clothes issued in Hospital are not accounted for." In July he issued a request for a pair of pants.

Admitted and released March 10, 1865. Disease looks like Debility.

Roll of medical officers, stewards, attendants, patients at Way Hospital No. 2 at Greensboro, N.Carolina April 29, 1865, and paroled in accordance with the terms ..........
"Patient"

Muster Roll of September - October 1864 notes he was absent and had been sick since October 6, 1864.

Lonzie Royal told me that "Grandpa Hand" was a carpenter and that he was in the Civil War. He said it was a couple of years after the war before he returned home. Note that, judging by David's birth date, Thomas was home in January of 1865. However, Dicen was born in 1869, so the story could have some merit.
