On January 13, 1934 the Death Angel visited the home of Mrs. Della Speed, Commerce, Texas and took her dear father. He lacked a few months being 74 years old. He was a true Christian and lived a life there. His works will follow him. Funeral services were held at Bonanza, Texas, before a crowded house of friends and relatives.

OBITUARY

Saturday, 19 August 1933

A sad shock came to Liberty (near Sulphur Springs,
Texas) on August 19th, when the news came that Avery
Speed was killed in a car wreck.

O. A. Speed whose home was two miles south of Carter
(Oklahoma) was fatally injured Saturday when he
was struck by an automobile while walking on a road near Custer
City (Oklahoma).

Speed and a brother-in-law (Leon Kingsford) had
been hitch-hiking to their homes after a visit with a sick
relative( Susie Kingsford-Wright).

They were facing a strong wind blowing sand and apparently did
not hear an automobile approaching them until it was upon them.
The driver of the car, L. A. Ratliff, of Custer City drove his
machine into a ditch to avoid hitting the men but Speed,
according to Ratliff and Speed's brother-in-law, jumped into
the car instead of away from it and the door handle struck him
in the side, puncturing the lungs.

Jack Anderson, of Clinton, arrived within a few minutes and
took Speed to the hospital at Thomas, where he died at
approximately 11:30AM Saturday.

Ratliff was exonerated of all blame by Speed's brother-in-law
who declared the misfortune was an unavoidable accident

Mr. Speed had been a resident of this section for the past four
years and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He had
been a consistent member of the Missionary Baptist Church for
the past sixteen years.

Funeral services were conducted in the local (Carter,
Oklahoma) Baptist Church at 3PM Sunday, Rev. S. L.
Isaacs officiating.

Burial in the Carter cemetery.

Lexie Martelia Speed was Born: 18 August 1901; Died: 13 August 1983; Age: 81yrs 11 Mos 26 Days

Survived by: daughters Elaine Nigh and Ruth Helmrich both of Sacramento, California; son Lewis Speed of Carmichael, California; 16 grandchildren; 14 nieces and nephews; 6 sisters Ruth Smalts of Altus, Oklahoma, Susie Wright, Eula Kingsford, Lula Ray, and Frankie Rowland of Elk City, Oklahoma; and Sarah Potter, McGregor, Texas; brother Leon Kingsford, Guymon, Oklahoma; brother-in-law Dennis Speed, wife Gladys, niece Carolyn Beasley of Texas.

Lexie was a very neat lady. I feel very privileged to have known her, to include her as a close friend. As read she was born in Weatherford, Texas in 1901. As many people in that era, she had to quit school in the third grade to help raise nine sisters and a brother. She was a lady who well knew how to work and was involved in it the majority of her life.

She was married in 1926; had three children then lost her husband in 1933. From that point on she found it necessary to raise her children by herself at a time when it was very difficult for a woman by herself to find a job. She worked the fields; she handled a laundry, in fact many times she told me how proud she was of the work she had put in particularly of the laundry. I believe she said she had owned a laundry. She did housework.

When I first met Speedie or pardon me Lexie. I have a hard time calling her Lexie. I've never done that before. To me she was always Speedie because it just seemed to exemplify her character. She was always in motion. She was always doing something. So if I slip now and then I hope you will forgive me.

When I first met Lexie at church, four years ago, it was an instance like that, that most impressed me. She was standing out in front. I hadn't noticed her before that time. Her grandson, Hugh, was out there teasing her. She was a little lady with a cane there and she raised that cane and she took off after him. That was only four years ago, but it was so typical of her. She was always in motion. She had a quick wit and she had a fast retort, and she could hold her own with anyone in verbal exchange. She was a very active person, unfortunately that caused her injuries. She just didn't know how to take it easy or to go slowly. She was always in motion. I used to kid her that there wasn't anything left for here to break. Every bone in her body it seemed like she had broken at one time or another and yet it didn't slow her down.

She was a very family oriented person also. I would go over to her apartment and talk with her and the windows and tables and everything were full of mementos from her children and grandchildren and friends in general and she had many. She loved them all and she had a great pride in them, especially her son, Lewis. I had never met him until the other day. She was so proud of him and of what he made of himself and by himself. She felt a real pride, maternal pride, in her family. In fact she was a very maternal-type person. She was always busy sewing, crocheting, knitting. I know I was there one Christmas and she had a big pile of things in the corner that she had crocheted, all for Christmas presents.

She was busy in many other ways also. She had a little garden there in front of her apartment that she tended by herself as a labor of love. It was a very prolific garden. She showed love to her family through all her crafts and she didn't take well to the sedentary life at all.

I would go over there and she loved to reminisce. I don't speak very clearly. I mumble when I speak, and she didn't hear very well. I think we had a symbionic relationship there because I liked to listen and she liked to talk. Many, many times I think we went over her entire life. Each time I found out things that absolutely fascinated me. We formed a great relationship. We shared in that relationship and she was also one of the most exemplary Christian people that I have ever met, because I think she is an example of what Christianity is supposed to be.

She knew her lord and she loved to go to church. Quite often she couldn't go, she was held down by arthritis, she had visual problems in that she couldn't read very well, and of course, she couldn't hear very well either. She often spoke of looking forward to the next life and she said, with confidence, that she looked forward to joining her husband also. The memories of him never diminished.

When she went in for her operation a couple of weeks ago, I asked her, "Lexie" actually I said "Speedie" do you have any fears? Are you worried about this? She said "Lloyd, I'm really very tired." She said "If it doesn't work out, that's fine with me." She said "I'm really prepared and I'm looking forward to the rest". If ever a person was prepared, I feel Lexie was.

Her greatest attribute though, I feel, was that she was a very loving person. She loved her family and she loved people in general. She loved and she loved to be loved.

I'm experiencing a loss, as I know you all are. Nothing of course compared to what the family is feeling. But there's also a source of joy in knowing that it's a temporary loss. That's the beauty of the people who are together in Christ who are never separated eternally. I know that today she is ecstatic that she is at rest. She has the eyes of an eagle. I look forward to seeing her again because we need people In this world who still believe in love and can give love as Lexie could. I've been asked to read from her Bible the thirteenth chapter of first Corinthians, which is often called

"The Love Chapter"
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angles, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.

Love suffereth long and is kind; love envith not; love vounteth not itself, is not puffed up; doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easly provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth In the truth; beareth all things, believth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Love never faileth. But whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tounges, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkley, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

It is said "God is Love" As far as I'm concerned , in my estimation, Speedie was love.

Song played: "Did You Think to Pray".

General Notes: LEXIE MARTELIA KINGSFORD

She attended the third grade in school. She was then required to help her father on the farm to support a large family. She cultivated her ability to read. The Bible being the most read. In her parents family there were nine girls and one brother. She had twin sisters. She was given the task of caring for her twin sister, Lula, and her older sister Susie was given the task of caring for the other twin, Eula. The twins bonded to the sisters who cared for them and continued into adulthood to look to them for advice and guidance. Before her marriage she enjoyed dancing. Her favorite was the local Saturday night dances.

As an adult she was approximately five feet and five inches tall, dark hair, and very slender of build. In her late fifties and sixties she had gray hair. Honesty, fairness, religion, hard work, and love for her children and grandchildren were her very strong characteristics. From her mother's Irish ancestors she inherited a strong opinion and remained animate in her opinions.

She loved and admired her husband, Orman Avery Speed. To her children she always spoke of his attributes and good character. Never any faults. She emphasized to them the facts that he did not smoke, drink, or use profanity.

She used "Garrett" brand snuff (tobacco) from early womanhood. She purchased the large bottles and filled her small metal snuff box from that. She was discrete in the use of snuff and few people knew she used it. Her favorite was to dig a willow tree root and use it as a toothbrush with her snuff.

Her desire and hard work was to give each of her children the best education possible.
Her son Orman Lewis Speed wears his high school graduation ring in memory of his mother making that education possible. She earned money doing housework for families which she used to support her own family and later for her to support herself and live alone.

The home and those who lived in it were always very clean and orderly. Clothes were clean and mended. She was a good cook and she taught all three of her children the basics. As a seamstress she was skilled at knitting, toting, crocheting, hand making clothes and quilts.
She believed in "spankings" and administered them to her children as often as she thought necessary to reinforce her teachings.

In 1952 she joined her son at Ladd Air Force Base near Fairbanks, Alaska. She worked in the Base laundry as a sorter-marker. After only a few months she became so homesick to see her grandchildren that she returned to Sacramento, California.

She had cataract surgery on her left eye 22 September 1978 and on her right eye in February 1979. Twelve years later her son had his eyes checked by Dr. Glenn Owens, who had performed her surgery. In the discussion Dr. said "your mother Lexie". Orman was surprised and asked Dr. Owens how he could still remember a patients name and relative after so many years. He said: "She was one great lady, so strong and proud, for a lady almost eighty years old. I could never forget her." In 1977 Dr. Mark Owens removed her gall bladder at the American River hospital. In 1990 Dr. Mark Owens (same doctor) removed the gall bladder of her son, Orman Lewis Speed, at the American River hospital (same hospital).

FAMILY RESEARCH
By Orman Lewis Speed

My oldest son, Gary Dale Speed, was born with very little hearing. He was considered to be deaf. He received much speech therapy when he was young. At age 6 he identified (for all people) female as MOM and male as DAD. In 1968 I wanted him to know family relationships.

I soon realized that I did not know the name of grandfather SPEED . My grandfathers were deceased prior to 1940. My paternal grandmother SPEED deceased 1967. My maternal grandmother KINGSORD deceased 1964. My father was killed in an automobile accident when I was six years old. Great sources of information lost. I should have started recording family history earlier.

I lived in Carmichael, California. All of my known relatives lived in Texas. I telephoned relatives and wrote/received letters about our families and ancestors.

When I receive information I return to the sender all of the family information that I had for that specific linage.

My aunt Eula Speed became very interested in helping me. She wrote letters, telephoned and visited those who might help. In addition she spent some time in the Dallas, Texas library looking for information. She shared information with me until her death.

I kept letters, made hand written notes and used the typewriter recording information. When my wife worked nights and I worked days we had young children to care for. My time to write letters and use the typewriter was after the children were in bed. Usually lasted to 1 or 2 AM.

Very quick I knew the need for a form to record the information . I did not know that the Mormons had forms for recording family history. One night between 12 am 2 AM I prepared a form to record information. A publication office was only a few blocks from where I lived. I paid to have the form reproduced. I used that form for a long time to send information to relatives. The form was used and copyrighted by a lady who lived near Sulphur Springs, Texas.

Very soon family history became my major hobby. During my retirement I have spent hundreds of hours recording and sharing family history.

Since 1968 more than 200 individuals have contributed information contained in my family history file.

Computer programs for family history were not developed/available in the 1960s. I paid a man who prepared a record that could be used with the ATARI computer and saved on tape.

As a result of my Aunt Eula contacting others with the surname SPEED we became aware that there are SPEED families that are not known to be related. Information was shared. Eventually I received records of 13 families with the surname of SPEED that had not identified a common ancestor. Using the computer and the advanced genealogy program I have been able to record a common ancestor for all except 5 of the 13 original families.

Once I collected coins. A man with the surname SPEED also collected coins. We found each others name and address thru a coin collection publication that we received. He shared his family information with me.

Prior to the internet and web site there has been/are other times when interest occurred by chance.

I have received and recorded family history for more than 37 different families. Always welcome more.

My wife read in a newspaper about a family history group in Sacramento, California that met on a regular basis. We contacted the group and attended until the group no longer met.

Computer programs for family history were in their infancy. By that time I no longer had vital information that had been given to me. Places of marriage, source of information etc I did not have to record.

The development of a disk and additional useable space on the computer became a great step in recording family history.

When I posted my first web site (29 July 2001) the response was rapid with inquires about families information. (11 March 2010) Due to restrictions on that web site I purchased another web site. Both web sites were prepared and existed with genealogy information.

On my web sites I invite others to contact me to determine whether I have information pertaining to their family history.

In January 2007 I mailed 16 CDs containing SPEED family history to libraries in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin,

I have beata tested six or seven computer genealogy programs. I now use the LEGACy program (formally ROOTS).

RECIPROCALS
By Gail Speed - Starr King School Page #52 of Sunburst.
When to use the reciprocals, and when to let them be,
That's the most difficult thing That has ever bothered me.
Adding and subtracting fractions Are positively fine,
Until I run into reciprocals Which really blows my mind!
YOU GOOFED !
By Gail Speed - Starr King School Page #66 of Sunburst
When you speak you must be trained, to speak of good things or refrain.
For when you speak the harm's all done, but your troubles have just begun.
When you think you're really sweet, the teacher gets you a brand new seat.
Then when you think you have everyone's eye the teacher tells you "good bye".
And off you go to the principal, who calls your mom and that's not all.
When you go home you have to write a thousand times, "Don't speak, unless you have a dime".
WEBS
By Gail Speed - Starr King School Page #66 of Sunburst.
The spider's great nest Suspended in the world's air
Can surprise even God!
