Mary Elizabeth was the first born child to Joshua James Thigpen and Frances ("Fannie") Caroline Wynn.

Shortly after their marriage, her parents moved from Russell Co., Ala. along with numerous other related families, to Clarksville, Arkansas. A few months after her birth, her parents moved back to Uchee, Ala. and it is there she met and later married John Cantey Arrant, her husband of 61 years. They married in 1907 and their union was blessed with five children.

"Miss Mary" was a talented seamstress, and she throughly enjoyed cooking and baking, especially the old recipes of her mother's. The glorious smells of her kitchen, her soft voice, and sweet smile are entrenched memories.

I did not know you, but after reading what someone else had to say about you on your memorial, I felt I had to stop and leave a note. I am so glad people like you exist. You brighten up an otherwise dark and dismal place. The world most definitely lost an...(Read more)
