EZRA R. SEARCY

1937

It is very sad to know of the death of the late Ezra K. Searcy, who died at his home in Tishomingo County near the Prentiss line on the 12th day of February just passed. He was born in eastern Prentiss County in September, 1868 and lived and reared a large family in east Prentiss County. Some years prior to his death he moved over the line' into Tishomingo County, where he died.

Mr. Searcy was first married to Rosa Nix, when they were a very, young couple. There was born unto them 15 children, ten of whom are still living; all mature men and women; were: Oscar Searcy, Mattie Searcy McCreary, Ella Searcy Gable Barney Searcy, and Ora Searcy Stennett, all citizens of Prentiss county, Mississippi; and Ruth Searcy Kay of Birmingham, Ala.. Minnie Searcy Lawrence Searcy, and Cora Searcy Counce, all citizens of Tishomingo County, Miss. By his second marriage there were born children, 2 of  whom are still living with his widow, their mother, Mrs. Tina Searcy, viz: Dexter Searcy and Charley Searcy, Tishomingo County.

Mr. Searcy left surviving him more than 40 children and grandchildren and great grand children.

Mr. Searcy was taken sick on the evening of February 12th with pneumonia, and died on the evening of the l3th.

He was buried in the old Piney Grove Graveyard, the resting place of so many of his family and friends. Funeral services were conducted by Bro. Whitner of Tishomingo. A large crowd of friends and neighbors gathered at the old burial site to pay last tribute to one who had lived an upright and an active life for so many decades in that community.

Mr. Searcy was man of unusual natural intellect, and while uneducated was well posted of all matters of general information and public interest. He was truly a man of a heart, and kind of heart that always found a way to help the old, anti the helpless, and the sick and the indigent, and to pass out kindly deeds and words of sympathy which carried the wings of the healing wand. He will be very much missed in that community, anti perhaps one of the best things that could be said for any man can be said for Mr. Searcy, that he was a mood man, an upright citizen, and had many friends who loved him and who mourn his loss.

 

We extend deepest sympathy to all his loved ones and assure them of our condolence in the hours of their grief.

Sincerely,

AN OLD FRIEND.

 

 

MRS. LAFRONA SEARCY

1937

It is with sadness that we announce the death of the late Mrs. Lafrona Searcy, who died on the 16th day of February at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Willie Searcy Ward, in the Bay Springs community.

Mrs. Searcy was the widow of the late W. N. Searcy and was the daughter of the late Joe Wilson, one of the very early settlers of old Cape Horn community in eastern Prentiss County long prior to the Civil War.

Mrs. Searcy had just passed her 88th birthday and had lived a long and a useful life. Her contributions to the progress and betterment of her community and her fellowman were great and varied.

She was a devoted member of the Methodist Church, in which faith she lived and died.

As a fruit of her marriage with the said late W. N. Searcy, there was born unto them 11 children on what is known as the Searcy Place in east Prentiss County, and five of these children survived her, two sons, Lucius Searcy and Harden Searcy of Troupe, Texas; and three daughters: Mrs. Carrie Searcy Goddard, Mrs. Willie Searcy Ward, both of Dennis; and Mrs. Amanda Searcy Michael, of South Prentiss. She has one brother who survived her, Stith Wilson of East Prentiss County, one of our old-line, substantial citizens, and she had an array of nieces and nephews in Prentiss and Tishomingo Counties who loved her.

Her grandson, Barney Searcy, undertook to collate the children, and grandchildren, and great grandchildren down to the fourth generation, and found that there were about 140. One hundred forty citizens of the background afforded by the Searcys and the Wilsons coming from one union, makes a contribution to society of which it should be proud.

The writer has known intimately this good woman for the past 45 years and cannot too earnestly express the many splendid traits of lofty character that controlled her attitude toward her fellow man and formed the objectives of her long and useful life. Hundreds have been better men and women and happier because of having known her and come it touch with her life.

 

She was buried the 17th at the Piney Grove of Methodist cemetery where so many of her ancestors and loved ones have long since slept and where her beloved son, Ezra Seamy, only preceded her by about

C. W. SIMMONS

Soldier of Sixties Relates Experiences

C. W. Simmons was born in Tennessee, April 30, 1844, and when six months of age his parents moved to what is now known as Brice's CrossRoads, where they settled on a farm.

In 1862, when but 17 years of age, he entered the Confederate Army, serving a year in another man's stead. In the first 16 days of his service he was engaged in 5 battles. After the year was up he enlisted in Co. K, 11th Miss. Calvary, where he served two more years. During the three years service he fought in 36 battles, although a greater portion of his time was spent in scout service.

At the Battle of Iuka, the Confederates were beaten back and in his retreat his horse mired down in the mud. Under heavy fire and while his comrades were moving on he worked trying to recover his steed but was finally forced to go afoot while bullets, like hail, were whistling and popping about him.

At one time while on picket duty he was forgotten at his post and stayed on duty for twice his time. In his weariness he fell in a daze, and except for the timely warning of an ant which had crawled in his ear, he would have been caught asleep on duty and doubtless court-martialed.

At Selmer, Tenn., he noticed one of his comrades shooting his pistol in the air. His Captain came by and told him to level his gun, whereupon the soldier jumped up and ran. The Captain ordered him to stop or he would shoot, and the man replied, "Why Captain, they are all running," and sure enough the boys were retreating and the Yanks were coming over the breastworks, leaving only the captain, Simmons, and the man from behind the log to seek safety as best they could.

The next morning after the battle of Florence, Ala., Simmons wanted a furlough home, but upon asking the Provost Marshal, he was denied a pass. Then he, together with six others, slipped away and started for Baldwyn. On their way they came to a bridge that was washed away. Some of the boys turned back, but Simmons/ with two or three others, swam the stream, leading their horses behind them, and arrived home in time to hear the news of the surrender, and he did not have to return to duty.

On Christmas, 1864, Simmons was married to Miss Aciniath Houston Walden, daughter of William A. Walden, west of Wheeler, and to them were born nine children, of whom four are living, John W. Simmons, Booneville; F. L. Simmons, Melrose, New Mexico: W. E. Simmons, Lindsey, Oklahoma; and Mrs. Emma Jones, Mayesville Oklahoma. His wife died December 29, 1917, since which time he has been living with his son in Oklahoma.

While in his teens he was converted in a union meeting at Mt. Olive. He joined the Methodist Church, of which he has been a continuous member since.

According to the laws of nature, Mr. Simmons has not many more years to be with us, but he is prepared, and whenever the Great General calls his name he is ready to answer "Here, Master" and fall in line for the last review.
