52 Ancestors: Carlie Leon Sawyer (#1)

Post #1 in my goal to participate in 52 Ancestors this year. I'm not sure yet if I'll follow the themes. I hope to discover more about this branch of my family this year.

My Great Grandfather: Carlie Leon Sawyer

Carlie Leon Sawyer was born on March 13, 1887 in Coffee County, Alabama, the son of Carter Sawyer [1849-1913] and Lucy McLean [1856-1920]. On September 22, 1912 in Coffee County he married Maude Amanda Crumpler, the daughter of Jefferson Davis Crumpler [1861-1939] and Josephine Ilena Crumpler [1869-1940]. 

To this union were born the following children: David Glenn [1913-1939], Pauline Inez, Agnes Lizelle [1919-1976, married to Daniel Union Stafford, [my grandparents], Lillian Lucille, Raymond C. L. [1927-1980] and Hazel Jeanette. 

Carlie and Maude moved to Holmes County, Florida in the late 1930’s. Carlie passed away in Holmes County on March 13, 1947 and Maude passed away on November 20, 1950 in Okaloosa County, Florida. They are buried at Wesley Chapel Cemetery in Coffee County, Alabama.
