    • More History on James C. Lawrence.

      . . . . . There was a headstone dedication and remembrance at the church adjacent to the Timbo Cemetery on May 22, 1993 and a brass military tombstone from the Veteran?s Administration was cemented into place along with his well worn old tombstone, the original stone wasn?t located until 1985 where it was found half buried in the cemetery. I attended this dedication and would like to thank Bernice Joy Regaldo for her perseverance in ordering and making all the arrangements, she was the Master of Ceremonies and the Rev. Logan Lawrence, of nearby Onia, Arkansas actually made the dedication. Ninety some year old James ?Jimmie? Driftwood from Timbo sang his Grammy winning song, ?The Battle of New Orleans?, he wrote the song many years ago and played an antique guitar and carried a good tune. Both Joy and Logan are descendants of Jimmie and Kizziah Lawrence..

      . . . . . James Lawrence served as a Private in the company commanded by Captain Reid, in the regiment of Georgia Militia in the War of 1812. He enlisted at Jasper County, Georgia and the following is his full description at the time of his enlistment: Height about five feet, ten inches; black hair and gray eyes..

      . . . . . Jimmie and Kizziah lived in Gwinnett County, Georgia from 1819 to 1833; Chattooga, Georgia from 1833 to 1852; Blue Mountain, Stone County, Arkansas from 1852 to Jimmie?s death in 1862, Kizziah resided between Stone County and Searcy County, Arkansas for the remainder of her life..
