The Lady in the Rocker
Charlotte Williams T
The Lady in the Rocker -- Charlotte Wilkes Williams -- joined by her daughter, Carrie Williams Cranford, and her son-in-law, Ed.
With the warm afternoon sun glistening on her silver hair, she sat in her rocker on her front porch reading her Bible. At other times, a flock of grandchildren gathered around her rocker for ghost stories which, when remembered later at bedtime, caused them to shiver and tightly gather the covers around their necks or cover their heads completely. At breakfast time she could be heard humming or softly singing some verses from the old Scottish/English ballad about Barbara Allen and Sweet William while she prepared mouth-watering country ham, eggs, grits and fresh biscuits.
