“A Birthday Celebration---A happy and exceedingly enjoyable occasion was a birthday celebration given in honor of Mrs. E.H. Williams at her home on last Sunday.
Mrs. Williams, a pioneer citizen of this section, has now passed her 82nd birthday, most of which have been spent in this community, and we feel sure that Wolf Creek community has been bettered by having her, for to know “Aunt Hala” as she is lovingly called is to love her.
The Sunday School went in a body to the home and others from farther away were already gathered there. Including the family there were 128 present at the time the dinner was served. It was a very bountiful dinner spread picnic fashion on the long porch because showers prevented having it in the shade of the large trees on the lawn.

“Mrs. Margarette Mahala Williams, 85 years of age, wife of the late Ephriam Henry Williams, and only child of the late Presley and Sallie Mosley, died at her home on Wolf Creek, March 11. Although she had been in declining health for several years, she was not confined to her bed until March 8, when she had a heart attack. She was born near Mountain Rest, S.C., May 2, 1854. At the age of two years she, with her parents, moved to the present home place where she lived the remainder of her life.
She became a member of the Wolf Creek Baptist Church at an early age and took an active part in all church work while she was physically able and afterward she never lost interest in the church and the well being of the community as a whole.
Being a pioneer in the weaving craft, she taught the art of weaving to the students of the craft class in the Tallulah Falls Industrial School in the earlier years of its history.
Surviving are seven children: Misses Amanda and Elizabeth Williams; Mrs. B.A. Cannon; Mrs. N.U. Turpin; Messrs Rufus, Albert and Charlie Williams. There are 21 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. The funeral services was held in the home at 3 o’clock Wednesday, March 13. Rev. John Carpenter of the Wolf Creek Church conducted the service. The interment was in the Wolf Creek Cemetery.
We are glad indeed to have known her and have her for a friend. Her friends were numbered by those who knew her. She was never too tired or too busy to lend a helping hand to those who were in need of help or in distress.
She lived a beautiful life and her light will ever shine in this community where she lived.
There is a vacant place in the home and the church that can never be filled, but we truly know that our loss is Heaven’s eternal gain. We humbly bow in the submission to the will of our Heavenly Father who giveth and taketh away.
We extend to the family our deepest sympathy in their bereavement.”---Written by a Friend.
