Charity Ruffin Sparrow Herring Maxwell died 12 Aug 1929 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. I am her great granddaughter and I have her death certificate in my possession. I have been to her grave many times, however it is not easy for anyone to find as the headstone was damaged and removed. I am trying to raise funds to restore her headstone. W

Shared note
2 _DATE 1924 2 _DATE 25 Dec 1926 2 _DATE about 1907 Amanda it seemed was a hardy soul. I guess the hard knocks of life made her that way. She had owned her own home, but it had burned and she was living with her son Thurman when she died. She was 68 years old and a widow for many years, even before she was a widow, her husband was in the state hospital in Raleigh,NC for about ten years and she was left to raise her large family. Her son Furnie said (from experience) she would rent or farm her children out to work for others. They would stay with whom ever they were working with for months at the time. Tey didn't like it very well but it was nescessary to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs. written by Virginia Harper
