    Notes 
    • [Related - Crumpler Name - jjones116@aol.com.ftw]

      The following was written by a child of Annie Jane Crumpler:

      "The Crumplers lived out here about three miles from town (Winnsboro) when 'Annie' was born. Later they lived in the 'Big Woods' down in the Hepsibah Community, and from there to the home as we knew it. Mama (Annie) was born in 1868 and 11 years later Lizzie was born. I've heard Mama say she did the work of a grown person that 'Ma' got on badly, she 'Mama' made a chicken pie and Dr. Florence teased her about it. By those facts, I think they were at Maple Springs.

      "The Crumplers and Dicksons were neighbors in the Big Woods and Asa and I believe they moved to Maple Springs in the late 1870's. They lived in Wood County until they moved to Maple Springs. Wood and Camp counties join close to where they lived at Maple Springs most of the land they owned is in Wood County, Texas."

      The following obituary appeared in a local newspaper upon John Crumpler's death:

      IN MEMORY OF MY FATHER

      After an illness of four months, the immortal spirit of J.A. Crumpler left its tenement of clay, called a home by the angels of heaven in the quiet morning hours of April 27, 1926, surrounded by his loved ones and friends. His passing to the new and brighter life was as peaceful as the gentle zephyrs that fanned his brow--a fitting and most florious close to a long and useful life spent in going good to his fellow man and faithfully serving the God to whom he acknowledged all allegiance.

      He was born in Alabama, September 26, 1865. Ten children blessed this union, eight of whom are living to mourn the going away of a loving father. He became a christian in early life; united with the Methodist church, and was a zealous and faithful member to the end. He was liberal with his time and liberal with his money, never allowing the obligations of his church to go unpaid. Maple Springs, the beautiful little church that stands among the oaks near his home, would not have been but for the liberality of this good man. It stands there today as a monument to his splendid christian life.

      His work on earth is now finished and he is among the redeemed of the church above. We laid his body to rest underneath a bed of beautiful flowers, in the little cemetary that he had cared for so tenderly so many years. Servant of God, well done, Rest from thy loved employ; The battle's fought, the victory won, Enter the Master's Joy. Daughter

      The inscription on his tombstone reads: His works were kindness, his deeds were love, his spirit humble, he rests above.

      John Asa Crumpler's father was born in Virginia and his mother was born in North Carolina according to census records. He moved to Texas in 1853. He married Mary Elizabeth BAILEY, daughter of John W. BAILEY and Huldah HOUSEWORTH, 26 Oct 1865. Born 9 Mar 1850 in Georgia. Died 6 Feb 1934 in Winnsboro, Wood Co, TX. Buried in Maple Springs Cemetery, Wood Co, TX.
