From the "Baptist and Commoner", Baptist Publishing Company, Benton and Little Rock, Arkansas, Volume VII, Number 37, January 9, 1924, was his obituary, written by his daughter, Rosa Lee (Mrs. Abner Gibson):

"On Friday night, July 19, 1923, after an illness of two weeks, God in his infinite wisdom saw fit to call dear father, Uriah Lee, to that blessed home above. He was born July 22, 1841, was married to Elizabeth Williams in 1859. To this union twelve children were born, of which nine are left to mourn his loss. Also dear mother and one brother and one sister and a host of friends are left to mourn his loss.

He lived a faithful Christian life. He was a faithful husband and father and a friend to all, so we bow in humble submission to the will of Him that doeth all things well. It was so hard to give him up. We loved him so much, but God loved him more. He called him to that eternal home, where there is no sin and sorrow. So dear ones, let us not weep, as those that have no hope. It grieves our hearts to part with him, yet I can rejoice to know that he is safe with Him who gave His life for the sins of the world. He always lived a life for Christ, before his children, always striving to bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And Oh! how I do love him for that. I can realize that our loss is heaven's gain, for he died with a smile as if he saw Jesus setting on the right hand of God, as did Stephens. We shall meet him again in that beautiful home above, to bask in the sunlight of God's eternal love.

 

A kind and dear one from us is gone,

A voice we loved is stilled.

A place is vacant in our home

Which never can be filled.

 

Papa has gone to live with Jesus,

And we know that he is there,

We hope some day to meet him

In that happy land so fair.

 

Tears from our eyes are falling,

Deep sorrow shades our brow,

Cold in the grave he is sleeping,

And we have no papa now.

 

Written by his daughter, Mrs. A. Gibson."

 

Regarding Uriah Lee's date of death, we have conflicting information. His obituary indicates that he died on July 19, 1923. His tombstone indicates that he died on July 22, 1923. His death certificate indicates that he died on July 21, 1923. Since the latter document is an official record and was signed by the attending physician, that date is presumed to be correct.

The 1910 census for Forrest County, Mississippi lists a George Lee with Mary Miles as his wife of 15 years (about 1895).

"Eva Johnson's kindness won the kids

By KAT BERGERON

THE SUN HERALD

 

WIGGINS - The neighborhood kids loved Eva M. Johnson. She was always there for them, but best of all, she let them take away candy when they didn't have the cash to pay. Her little grocery store on Magnolia Drive in Wiggins was a safe haven - and a stash of goodies.

 

"We'd be playing in the woods, run over to the store to buy candy and a soft drink, then we'd go back to playing," said Susan Lott, the Stone County comptroller who grew up in the piney-woods neighborhood.

 

"She'd keep a ticket on each of us and at the end of the month let our parents know how much it was. Sometimes we'd have her slice up just a couple of pieces of lunch meat and we'd take it home to make a sandwich. When I think back on those times, they really were incredible."

 

"Miss Johnson," as the neighborhood politely called her, died Thursday at 92. Although Johnson's Grocery closed two decades ago, those who grew up with its friendly proprietor in the 1950s through the 1970s never forgot her kindness.

 

"She was a sweetheart," Lott said.

 

Johnson is also remembered for her strong faith. Until age slowed her, she taught Sunday school and was faithfully involved in the women's league at Vardaman Street Baptist Church.

 

"She believed in teaching the Bible to all of her friends and anyone who would listen," said her daughter, Eva "Dimple" Ferrell of Wiggins.

 

"Her upbringing was the key to her personality. Her mother died when she was a teen-ager so she quit school to take care of the other children. She never resented or regretted it.

 

"She lived the Christian way and set a good example."

 

An obituary appears below.

Notes for MITTIE RUTH GIBSON:

Mittie Ruth was never able to support herself independently. She lived with her father, Abner Gibson, or her sister, Eva Mae Gibson Johnson, most of her life, until her care requirements necessitated living in a nursing home. She died in a nursing home in Gulfport, Mississippi. Her obituary read as follows, "Mittie Ruth Gibson, 82, of Gulfport, died November 13, 1998, in Gulfport. She was a member of Vardaman Street Baptist Church in Wiggins, and a native of Stone County. She is survived by two sisters, Eva Mae Johnson of Wiggins and Madie Baulch, of Franklin, Tennessee; and a number of neices (sic) and nephews. Services were held November 15th at Moore Funeral Home in Wiggins, with burial at Ebenezer Cemetery in Wiggins."

vii. MADIE GIBSON, b. 14 May 1919, Bond, Stone Co., MS; m. JAMES HOMER BAULCH, 13 Apr 1940, Gulfport, Harrison Co., MS; b. 18 Dec 1915, Gallatin, Sumner Co., TN; d. 24 Nov 1992, Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, LA.

 

Notes for MADIE GIBSON:

Madie was given the name Maybell at birth, but her sister, Mittie Ruth, could never pronounce it right and called her Madie. Eventually she legally changed her name to Madie and dropped any reference to Maybell. She was raised in Bond, Mississippi and attended Harrison-Stone-Jackson Agricultural High School and Junior College (later known as Perkinston Junior College).

 

The following is her wedding announcement contained in a local newspaper:

"Mr. Abner Gibson announces the marriage of his daughter Miss Madie Gibson to Mr. James H. Baulch, son of Mr. G. N. Baulch of Gallatin, Tenn. The groom is a graduate of Bowling Green Commercial Law School of Bowling Green, Kentucky and has been bookkeeping instructor and business manager at Perkinston Junior Colege (sic) for two years when he resigned to take a position in Tennessee. The bride is a graduate of Perkinston High School. The young couple left as soon as his work was completed at the Junior College. They will be at his home in Gallatin, Tenn."

 

Madie was an accomplished seamstress, making clothes for her children and thirteen grandchildren. She was an active member of the United Methodist Church, having held numerous positions on church boards and committees. One of her greatest gifts is her contributions to the Altar Guild and, more directly, the talent she has with the flower arrangements for the church services. When Jim entered semi-retirement, they enjoyed travels to West Germany, Austria, England, Canada, and Brazil. Life was difficult for Madie after Jim died in November 1992. In September 1997 she moved from Slidell, Louisiana to Morningside Assisted Living in Franklin, Tennessee.

Notes for JAMES HOMER BAULCH:

The middle name of Homer came from the man who delivered James into this world, Dr. Homer Reese. He was raised and schooled in Sumner County, Tennessee and spent his grammar school years at the Salem School building where he laughingly claimed he "was the smartest one in the eighth grade ... and the only one!" He attended Spartanburg Textile Industrial Institute (l.k.a. Spartanburg Junior College), University of Tennessee, and Bowling Green College of Commerce.

 

The 1935 yearbook of Spartanburg Textile Industrial Institute, "The Trail Blazer", lists Freshmen in attendance. On page 21, it lists "James Baulch, Gallatin, Tenn."

 

The 1936 yearbook of Spartanburg Textile Industrial Institute, "The Olympic", lists Sophomores in attendance. On page 10, it lists "Jim Baulch, Gallatin, VA (sic), 'What I must do concerns me, not what people think.'"

 

The 1938 yearbook of Bowling Green College of Commerce, "The Towers", lists the 1938 Seniors in attandance. On page 20, it lists "James H. Baulch, B. S., Gallatin, Tennessee, 'Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.'"

 

After graduating from college, Jim became an instructor and business manager at Harrison-Stone-Jackson Agricultural High School and Junior College (l.k.a. Perkinston Junior College), where he met a student, Madie Gibson, who became his wife.

 

The record of Jim and Madie's marriage is in the Harrison County, Mississippi court book 50, page 640, where it indicates that they were married April 13, 1940 by H. C. Moore, Justice of the Peace.

 

He and Madie then traveled to Gallatin, Tennessee to visit his family, and they moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where he was a bookkeeper and instructor for Carolina Business College. He later joined his brother, Ernest, as schoolmaster at "Baulch Junior School for Boys" in Park City, Kentucky until 1949. From there they moved to Hopkinsville, Kentucky where he was Business Manager for Hopkinsville Lincoln-Mercury and bookkeeper for Hopkinsville Auto Parts until 1958. He was then recruited by Oak Motors of Nashville, Tennessee to be Assistant Business Manager. In 1959 he was recruited by Jim Burke Buick of Birmingham, Alabama to be Business Manager. In 1964 he followed his doctor's advice to find a less stressful job and moved to Slidell, Louisiana to be Business Manager and part owner of John Brown Olds (later Tom Brown Olds-Buick, Del Williams Motors, and Bill Ward Motors), Slidell, Louisiana until his retirement in 1986 (excepting for a brief return to Birmingham, Alabama to help out Jim Burke Buick in 1971).

 

James Baulch was received into membership of the Salem Methodist Church, north of Gallatin, Sumner County, Tennessee in October 1929 by his brother, Rev. Ernest F. Baulch. He remained an active member of the United Methodist Church his entire life, holding numerous positions on its boards and committees and taught an Adult Sunday School Class for over 30 years. He was an ardent believer in maintaining a healthy body, engaging in a variety of exercise programs, particularly those centered around running. He won numerous awards for finishing top in his age group for 10K and 5K runs through age 76. Having been raised on a farm, the "farmer blood" never left him. He maintained a vegetable garden wherever he lived and helped his children establish ones for them.

 

Largely due to his active life style, he looked and acted younger than his years. He was admired and respected by his friends and family for his physical, mental, and spiritual strength. He was the epitome of reliability: if he promised he would do something, he did it as committed and did it well. While quite introverted, he was a friend to anyone who needed him, often selflessly sacrificing himself in support of others. Friends and family knew they could count on him.

 

He and his wife, Madie, lived a beautiful fifty-two years together. They were always committed to each other, to their family, to their church, and to their friends. They were both victims of a tragic car accident (being hit broadside by a one-ton truck that ran through an inoperative red light) in May 1992 and were hospitalized for over a month. With two brain hemorrhages and numerous broken bones, recovery was slow and physical therapy was difficult. Six months later, a massive stroke put him in a deep, irreversible coma. With no hope of a functional life, his family followed his often repeated request if such an occasion arose. He was taken home and removed from life support systems. He died on November 24, 1992, two days before Thanksgiving. It was as he would have liked it: he was at home in his own bed, kept warm by the quilt made by his mother that had been a wedding gift to Madie and him, and surrounded by his family. Madie, all three children, and all their spouses were there, singing hymns from the United Methodist Hymnal. It was during his son Howard's singing of "How Great Thou Art" that he breathed his last breath here on earth. His son-in-law, Floyd Duvall, fittingly read the Twenty-Third Psalm as he joined the angels in heaven.

 

Originally, Jim was placed in a mausoleum in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Slidell, Louisiana. After Madie moved to Franklin, Tennessee in September 1997, he was moved to his final burial place in Woodlawn Memorial Park in Nashville, Tennessee, near his parents and his brother, Nelson Howard Baulch.
