OF WILLIE TREADAWAY
by: Marian Bullard
of Willie Treadaway, dated February 15, 1924
the morning of January 29th, 1924, our community was almost
paralyzed with the news of Willie Treadaway's death, some not
even knowing of his sickness, he was taken suddenly ill on
Saturday night after cutting stalks part of the day Saturday
making preparation for his intended next year's crop and died
the following Monday night.
Willie was one of the most moral, hardest working Christian boys
of our county, loved by all. He and his mother Mrs.
Matilda Treadaway, moved to this community many years ago from
somewhere near the Gabriel's Creek section of country. The
writer has been a close friend of the family since their coming
here and can truly say Willie was one of the best boys to his
widowed mother I ever say.
He professed faith in Christ some years ago and expressed the
same confidence in his last moments, however expressed one
regret that he had not followed Christ in the ordinance of
baptism, but said he would be baptized if permitted to get well.
