His relatives and close personal friends knew
him as "Bob". His friends in the business would know him as
"J.R." He grew up during the Reconstuction
Period following the Civil War, the son of a Farmer-Minister with a family of
ten children. His opportunities for attending school were limited to the three
Early in life he became accustomed to hard
physical labor and when he reached his maturity, stood 6 feet four and one
quarter inches tall, and was so adept with an axe and marel
that he became the champion "rail splitter" in his community. Several
of his acquaintances have told me that he was the strongest man on a "Handstick" at the local "log rollings"
that they ever knew. After I became a young man, he was still physically the
strongest man I ever knew.
He was as gentle as he was physically strong.
He was a devout Christian who believed that the ‘golden rule’ was meant to be a
guide for ones everyday actions in his dealings with his fellow man. He taught
his sons that "honesty is the best policy" and that a good name was
greater to be desired than great riches.
He enjoyed the quiet life of a country farm
until my mother’s physical condition made it necessary for him to move to town,
where his children built them a home next door to his youngest daughter. He
survived my mother by less than two months, which was as he wished and prayed
for it to be. I am looking forward to "That Great Reunion Day".

I took a backward glance today, at
three-score and ten plus four;
I totaled it up for what it’s worth, whether
it’s little, or maybe more.
I lived again the days when as a boy I reamed
the wood beside the dusty trail.
I felt again life’s trials, it’s tears, and then the joy that comes when earnes efforts do not fail.
I cannot beast of wealth or fame, but, of
this I am most humbly proud;
When the book is opened to my name, and when
my record is read aloud…it could by today, tomorrow, it’s all the same, I’ve tried to be a leader, not just a man in the crowd.
During the month that I have corresponded
with William, I have learned to admire his wonderful sense of humor and respect
his many talents. William is a friendly, ambitious person and is an asset to
his community. William is well educated, now retired from many years of
teaching. During the years of teaching school, William taught many of his
cousins, nieces and nephews. William is extremely talented in the fields of
music and voice and has written several songs that was published by
"Stamps Baxter of Dallas" in the 1920’s and 40’s. At one time he knew
personally most of the song writers of ‘southern type’ music. Now retired, he
stayed active by running a real estate business in Lawndale, CA where he now
resides with his wife Bertha.
William also taught Theory in several normal
schools. He attended the University of Arkansas, where he studied music,
penmanship and other courses. He is also very interested in Family History and
has a marvelous memory and can recall many incidents that took place in
Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi as a small lad.
William enjoys building things. One story
related to me by William was the time he completely built and finished a double
dresser. He used ashwood and gave it a natural shine.
He made everything including the drawers. His wife, Bertha enjoyed showing it
to their friends, until they found that the wood they had used was infested
with termites. William states, he couldn’t get the dresser out of the house
fast enough! All that was saved of his master piece was the mirror.
William will never forget the night of the
Realty Board Installation Banquet. Three weeks before the banquet, the Banquet
Committee asked him to give the invocation at the installations of the officers
and directors of the Realty Board. After some persuasion, William agreed. There
were several hundred persons including the Mayors and City Councils of both Hawthron and Lawndale, assembled in the Dinning
Hall, when the Mayor called William to the podium for the invocation. William
states, he had seen fellows in like situations get nervous and forget what they
had said, so he wrote up a real good speech just for the occasion and slipped
it under the podium light where he could refer to it if need so. Just after he
started someone accidentally disconnected the microphone cord and his sound
went off. He adjusted his voice up where he could be heard through the hall.
Just as he started again his podium light went out and he couldn’t see his
notes. After a slight pause, William continued making his speech up as he went
along. This was the last time he agreed to speak for the Realty Banquet. As the
old saying goes, "Alls well that ends
