We believe her cause of death was diptheria, but that is only through memory of word-of-mouth discussions.
One of two articles about the W.W. Crockett General Store by C.M. Raulston, Jr. - In 1873, W.W. Crockett established a General Store on top of a steep clay hill a half mile south of Pecan Bayou on the Albion Road. In October of 1900, he buried a beloved two-and-one-half year old daughter in New Haven Cemetery. Her name was Dimple Dee. In 1901, Mr. Crockett established a post office in his store. At that time, the community was called various names, such as Liberty Hill, Raulston's Corner, and New Haven. Mr. Crockett named his post office in memory of his departed little daughter. Since that time, our community has been called Dimple.
Two of two articles about the W.W. Crockett General Store by C.M. Raulston, Jr. - In the early days our community was variously called Liberty, Liberty Hill, Raulstons Bend,and Cravens. In 1898 W. W. Crockett, a photographer in Clarksville established a general store on the Albion Road atop a clay hill 1/2 mile south of Pecan Bayou. He maintained his photography business by spending two days a week there. On his return trips to the general store he picked up the mail for the people in the community. During their first year in the general store, Mr. Crocket and wife Katie had a daughter born to them . They named her Dimple Dee. She died in October 1900 at age 2 years and six months. In 1901 the postmaster objected to Mr. Crockett's habit of delivering mail to his customers. As a result, Mr. Crockett established a post office in the general store and named it in honor of his departed little daughter. Since that time our community has been called Dimple.
