Jake's nephew Bruce King often said what a fine man his Uncle Jake was. Jake and Gena took care of his mother during her bout with cancer. They took her to Houston during her treatments and gave her much love and care.

The following Paraphrase of Proverbs 31:10-31 was written by Tilden B. Armstrong:

In Memory of H. H. (Jake) King

A good son, husband, father, who can find?

He is far more precious than stocks, bonds or real estate.

His wife has no occasion to doubt his integrity, and he will prove a good provider.

He remains faithful to his vows all the days of his life.

He seeks for work; finds it and gives a day's service for a day's wage.

He is like the ships of merchants, bringing provisions for his household from far and near.

He rises early in the morning and makes adequate preparations for the day.

He considers every opportunity an occasion for investment, and takes advantage of it.

He plants where he does not expect to reap, but with a prayer that it will bless others.

He gives praise to God for strength of mind and body.

He has conviction that the way of the Lord is profitable.

The radiance ofhis faith is not dismiished by the darkness of doubt, nor the approach of night.

He puts his heart, as well as his hands into his work.

He shares what he has with the poor, and gives a helping hand to the needy.

He doesn't dread the coming of Winter, having used the Spring and Summer to make ready for whatever it may bring.

His neat dress speaks of his kind and gentle spirit.

His wife is honored and respected by all who know her.

The callouses on his hands are the product of his labor, which sustains and blesses his family.

He is clothed with strength and dignity of a faith that keeps a smile on his face regardless of the circumstances of life.

He speaks words of wisdom; his tongue knows no words except those of kindness.

His heart delights in his family. He teaches his children to honor God and neighbor with honest toil.

His children bless God when they remember him; so does his wife; and the life that he lived continues to praise her.

Many men have done excellently, but he is near the top of the list.

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, to some people, but he used them to praise God and bless his neighbor.

The life that he has lived shall never cease to be a blessing and a benediction to all who come after.

Love never dies!

The name was "Jake".

"He Walked with God and God Took Him Home."

love of her family and friends. She enjoyed being with two of her great-grandchildren each day. She entered the hospital on January 16 and one week later suffered cardiac arrest. Her health had been failing rapidly due to a congestive heart
condition that had been developing for several weeks. Aunt Gena spent her last Christmas with her family at their traditional family gathering in Abilene and sang the Christmas songs that she loved and played so well. Most of her
grandchildren and all four of her great-grandchildren were there, and she loved every minute of their company as they did hers. She spent that night in her home of fifty-eight years and then attended services the next day at First Methodist
Church where she had been a member for almost sixty years.

During her funeral service, her pastor, who knew her well, focused on her deep abiding faith, her good sense of humor, her Christian example, her unlimited tribute to her rich and caring life, and it gave her family great comfort.

Susie lived at Maple Springs, Camp County, Texas before her marriage and Oscar lived at Leesburg, also in Camp County, Texas. They had gone together for about 1 1/2 years and were engaged about eight months. They were married at her home on Wednesday afternoon, December 28, 1892. All of the Methodist ministers had gone to conference, so Uncle Billie Harris, a Baptist preacher performed the ceremony. No one stood up with them, but everyone was invited to the wedding and to the
wedding supper.
When Mother (Susie) King was asked, she said that everyone stayed for the wedding supper and that instead of coffee and cake; they served a big meal. They spent the first night at his sister's, Mrs. Will Morris, a place near Leesburg, but waited until they were married to buy their furniture. They stayed at his sister's for two weeks, then moved into their home.
Her "hope chest" consisted of quilts, feather beds, and pillows and linens. Oscar came for her in his wagon and team and they loaded all of her things into his wagon.
They lived in Leesburg for about 18 years, then bought the farm at Ebenezer Community and moved there. All of their children were born at Leesburg. Jake and Bill the youngest, were six years old when they moved to Ebenezer.
Susie's wedding dress was yellow and her gloves were white kid four-button gloves.
For many years, Ruby (King) and Loujena King would take the children--all six and go to Mother King's for the church revival meeting. Loujena would play the piano, the little boys would pass the collection plate and they bolstered the
attendance for every service--morning and evening.
Mother King was proud for them to come and the children were surely forgiven for their unwillingness to leave their play in the pretty white sand surrouding the house and get bathed in the wash tub and dressed for church. Just as surely
Ruby and Loujena were forgiven for their vexations in accomplishing this feat.
Jake and Shep were able to get their vacations and go with us for the meeting but not often. It was customary then for the visiting evangelist to spend the nights at the parsonage then he and the pastor would eat dinner in the different
homes in the community. Mother King always "had the preachers" one day.
The day before, the yard was raked and every inch of the ground from the barn gates and the "outhouse" was swept. The vegetables were all gathered in and most of the meal was prepared in advance. The children were brushed up on their best manners and behavior and all were perfect when they came to the table, they bowed their heads for grace and all was going perfectly until the old preacher started eating his peas with his knife. This information was furnished by Loujena Sheppard King.
Susie had cancer of the larynyx and had her larynyx removed sometime before 1958 but she lived a long time afterwards. After this surgery, she could only talk in a whisper.

The following obituary appeared in a Wood County newspaper at the death of Mary Crumpler:
We have said goodbye to an old and dear friend, a kindly personality, an unselfish soul--Mrs. Mary Crumpler. This is a world of goodbyes. Every morning bids good-bye to the night from which it springs. Every evening bids good-bye to the sunlight. Every day some ship sets sail, every day a friend departs. "I cannot say and I will not say that she is dead--she is just away With a cherry smile and a wave of the hand She has wandered into an unknown land. And you you, who the wildest yearn For the old time step and the glad return, Think of Her faring on, as dear In the loves of the there as the love of her. Think of her still the same, I say; She is not dead--she is just away."
I am happy in the thought that Mrs. Mary Crumpler was my friend--our friend. Since I could remember I have known her--her family being our nearest neighbors for eight years. As a wife and mother she lived the scripture "She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not but that she could "stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy." A few brief days since she slipped out of the night to enter a fairer day. The gates of the Celestial City must have swung wide, that she might have an abundant entrance to meet one who knew her and one whom she knew and loved. Today her body rests in the silent city of the dead, there to mingle with the earth of which it was a part. Today she walks " in the fields of asphodel beside the timeless sea". I hope she knows we have not forgotten her, and that as we too willingly offer this poor tribute of words, the fragrant memory of her pure, novel life shall rest upon us like a benedicition. Her family of honorable sons and daughters bear testimony to her noble example and Christian life. To these sons and daughters who survive her I would say: "They are waiting for us over there, The young, the beautiful, and fair Who left us, of, so long ago, Lonely and hurt on earth below, Are Waiting bravely, never fear, Until our faces shall appear. Though now you mourn, who stay behind, How sad 'twould be, to leave and find Upon that distant, other shore No loved ones who had gone before-- The gates of heaven to enter through With not one there to welcome you. As now when some long journey ends And we're received by smiling friends Who've watched and waited for the train, So shall they welcome us again; The young, the beautiful, and fair Will be waiting for us there." A Friend.

Mary's tombstone inscription reads: "In life She exhibited all the Graces of a Christian, in death her spirit returned to God who gave it."

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:


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.
