27. JOHN HIRAM4 SASSER (JOHN W. B.3, JOHN B.2, HOWELL1) was born October 1866 in Covington County, Alabama, and died Unknown in Possible Covintington County, Alabama. He married (1) MARTHA E.

HUGGINS 1893 in Covington County, Alabama. She was born Abt. 1866 in Covington County, Alabama, and died Bef. 1898 in Possible Covintington County, Alabama.

Notes for EMMA J. HUGGINS:

The following is just speculation on my part and has no verification or proof. It is just a hunch so keep that in mind if you choose to repeat this.

I believe that Emma was the sister to Sarah Huggins, the wife of William Jesse Sasser who was the brother to Emma's husband John Sasser. I find it curious that Emma and Sarah both had one child and disappear shortly afterwards. Could it be that the same fate met both and they died as a result of having their first child? Though this Sasser line is not my direct line of research, I believe that I would really investigate this scenario if it were.

Notes for MARY ELEANOIR COMPTON:

Mary Eleanoir Compton-Sasser

My years as a child in Brantley, Alabama are a mixed bag of emotions. There were happy times and not so happy times. There were times I couldn't entertain the thoughts of being gone from there and other times I couldn't bare another day. Regardless of the light that Brantley seemed to shine on me from time to time, a few stand out above the rest. One of the memories I have that evokes that of kindness and goodness is the memories I have of Mary Eleanoir Sasser. This woman certainly radiated in every aspect those qualities.

Mary was a very active member of the Spring Hill Baptist Church near Brantley in the Spring Hill Community. I will always remember the smile on her face and the shine in her eyes as a child in Sunday School. There was no doubt in my mind, even when I was so young, where that glow came from. She was and is a true follower of the Lord. My father died in 1988 and Mary came by to visit the family. The care and kindness she showed that day was the same I remembered from that earlier time.

Sometimes, I wonder how someone can overcome certain tragedies in their lives and remain strong in faith. How is that certain people can continue to have faith when they seem to be a target for heart ache after heart ache? Mary has been no stranger to this pain, having lost two children and a grandchild to horrible accidents. For anyone that knows Mary, they know that she has had, what seems to me, an unfair share of grief and pain. My heart certainly goes out to her, however, I would never have to ask her how it is she finds the strength. I know the answer she would give me. This woman puts her faith and sorrow in the hands of Jesus Christ.

Mary recently provided me with information on her children and grand children, as well as some locations of birth, marriage, etc. Since my son, Christopher Shackleford, died in accident caused by a drunk driver on July 29, 2000, I have learned to understand the pain that Mary and her husband Orrie endured. Knowing this, my admiration for their strength and courage to face such heart ache has increased tremendously. With in the past few months Orrie has suffered a stroke. Knowing the agony of that by seeing my father die slowly from a massive stroke, my heart goes out for this family. They are in my prayers.

Mary and Orrie were married at the home of her parents.
