William Orlando SHURTLEFF [Parents] 1 was born on 25 Nov 1857 in Meadville, Franklin Co., Mississippi. He was baptized 2, 3 on 14 Aug 1904 in Central Baptist Church, Berea, Ashley Co., Arkansas. He died 2 on 26 Jan 1925 in Dermott, Chicot Co., Arkansas. He was buried 4 in Dermott City Cemetery, Chicot Co., Arkansas. William married 5 Alice Ella HEMBY on 12 Nov 1882 in Franklin Co., Mississippi.

   William was born on 25 Nov 1857 in Meadville, Franklin Co., Mississippi, and was the first child born to Orlando and Jane. When William was seven, his mom died and Orlando remarried Sarah when he was 9 years old. His stepmother Sarah would also have a short life and died in Dec 1876 when William was 19.
    In 1880 William was single and living by himself in Enumeration District #145 of Franklin Co.
   In 1882 William married Alice Ella Hemby in Franklin Co., and would have five children in that region between 1884 and 1891.  In July of 1892, William and Alice's daughter Mary Lucretia died at age 2. Between July 1892 and August 1893 the family would move some 200 miles north to Ashley County, Arkansas.  In 1895 the couple would lose another infant when their last child, William Jr. was born and only lived a few days.
    For the 1900 census the family resided in Bearhouse Township with all five of their living children: Charlie, Sarah Jane "Janie", Webb, Walter and James.
   William's wife, Alice would join Central Baptist Berea Church in 1899, and his daughter Janie would be baptized in 1901. It was not until 1904 that William joined the church via baptism at the age of 46. He quickly became active in the church, for in 1904 he was appointed as a church "messenger to the association," and in January 1905 he was appointed as clerk pro tempore. In 1906 and 1907 William and Alice's children Webb and Walter were baptized. In 1909 and 1910 William and Alice would again serve as church association messengers (Central Baptist Church records).
   In 1910 the family still resided in Bearhouse Township, with children Webb, Walter and James in the house.
   Sometime between 1910 and 1920 William and Alice would move north to near Line, in Collins Township, Drew County, Arkansas (1920 Census). In the 1920 census both William and Alice are 62 and living on "Hamburg Road" in Line. Living with them was their youngest son James.
   On 24 July 1921, William and Alice joined Mt. Olive Baptist Church. The change in membership was likely due to the move, which placed them closer to Mt. Olive Baptist Church (Mt. Olive is approximately 3.6 miles to the north of Central Baptist Church, or more than one-half an hour by horse carriage). However, it is also noted that Central Baptist Church had lost most of its membership by this time and was dissolved in 1924.
    William died on 26 January 1925 in Dermott, Chicot County, Arkansas, and was buried in the Dermott City Cemetery. (Note that an incorrect death date is given in the Shurtleff descendant book).

Alice Ella HEMBY [Parents] was born 1, 2 on 18 Sep 1857 in Madison Pa., Louisiana. She died 1 on 29 Aug 1929 in Dermott, Chicot Co., Arkansas. She was buried 3 in Dermott City Cemetery, Chicot Co., Arkansas. Alice married 4 William Orlando SHURTLEFF 1 on 12 Nov 1882 in Franklin Co., Mississippi.

   Alice Hemby was born 18 September 1857 in Madison Parrish, Louisiana to Dennis and Lenora and was the sixth of eight children. The family had just arrived in Louisiana from Mississippi only a few years prior. In 1860 the family is noted as living in Concordia Parrish, Louisiana and at that time they have six slaves: age 35 (male), age 35 (female), age 28 (female), age 10 (female), age 3 (female) and age 1 (female).
    The time living in Louisiana was short, for by September 1863 the family returned to Mississippi and in 1870 is residing in Franklin Co., Mississippi, where Alice's parents were married 25 years earlier (perhaps the return to Mississippi was related to the Civil War, which would not end until April 1865). Alice grew up with her paternal grandmother, Sarah Wells Hemby, as she was noted in the home for both the 1860 and 1870 census. (No 1880 census has been found for Alice or the Dennis Hemby household).
   On 12 November 1882 at age 25 Alice would marry William Orlando Shurtleff in Franklin County, Mississippi.
    Alice was apparently a very dedicated Christian. Prior to moving to Ashley County, Arkansas, (about 1893) she was a member of Hopewell Baptist Church in Franklin Co., Mississippi, where it is also known that her father had been a member. Alice's maternal grandfather, James Cain, was one of the early pastors of another Franklin Co., Mississippi church--Zion Hill Baptist Church.  He was pastor there from 1827-1832 (this church is still active as of 2005 and is known as Mt. Zion Baptist Church). It was Alice that in 1899 first joined Central Baptist Church in Berea, Ashley County, Arkansas. She joined on a letter of recommendation of Hopewell Baptist Church, Mississippi. It would be five years later that her husband William would join Central Baptist Church by baptism.
   In October 1905, news would reach Alice in Ashley County, Arkansas, that her mother and youngest sibling, Charlie, had both died of yellow fever back in Franklin Co., Mississippi.
   Further details on Alice's life during her marriage to William may be read about from William's biography. Alice became a widow at age 67 upon William's death in 1924. On 29 August 1929 at the age of 71 Alice died in Dermott, Chicot County, Arkansas and was buried with William in the Dermott City Cemetery.
