Obit. for Callie Venable Huff from a 1917 Williamson Co., TN paper. Father's name and year of birth in the obit is not the same as that shown on her death certificate.
Death Certificate shows her father as James Venable and year of birth as 1855. I have not been able to connect her with a James Venable and believe the obit to be correct.
The newspaper reports: She was born Feb. 6, 1857 at Athens, Ala. came to TN when a small child with her father, W. G. Venable, and three brothers: all of whom preceded her to the grave, except one, Ed Venable, of Carters Creek, TN.
She died Jan 7, 1917 at 3:30 p.m. her death occured at her home near Burwood, TN.
She was married to W. A. Huff, August, 1874. To this union were born thirteen children, three of whom preceded her to the grave. Twenty grandchildren.
She was a member of the M. E. Church. Her request was for Elder W. P. Russell, a Primitive Baptist, of Triune, TN to preach her funeral.
This is not the complete obit. but includes all the family info that was listed.
If this obit. is correct "Callie Mae" Venable is actually Perlina C. Venable shown on the 1860 and 1870 Census with William G. Venable. Her mother would have been Nancy Crane.
Nancy Crane married William G. Venable in Athens, AL on 28 Dec. 1848.
Anybody know who William G. Venable's father was ?
