Lillian Melessia "Lillie" Stansell Carmichael
Birth: Feb. 26, 1880
Cobb County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jan. 14, 1962
Lubbock County
Texas, USA

My paternal grandmother.

Ninth of 11 children born to Baron DeKalb Stansell b. November 25, 1833 and Caroline "Carrie" Jane Prichard b. March 18, 1837.

Paternal grandparents: David Stansell b. abt. 1796 and Priscilla Chastain b. abt. 1797.

Maternal grandparents: Joshua Prichard Jr. b. November 24, 1807 and Sarah "Sallie" Echols (Eccles) b. September 28, 1803.

Moved with her parents and siblings to Cisco, Eastland County, Texas from Cobb County, Georgia in 1885.

Married Luther McLane Carmichael on January 26, 1904 in Cisco, Eastland County, Texas. The couple had four children: Bernis Wilson b. July 17, 1906; Carlton James b. April 8, 1908; Loveta Mae b. May 24, 1912; Ruth Aileen b. December 31, 1914.

Moved with her husband and first child from Cisco, Texas to Kenna, Roosevelt County, New Mexico in about 1907. L. M. was a retail merchant in Kenna for several years along with his brothers, Thomas and Charles. In 1911 the family moved to a homestead three miles southeast of Kenna.

When the children began entering college in 1925 Lillie managed a second home in Lubbock, Texas to be near Texas Technological College. She managed the ranch at Kenna after L.M. died in 1930. In the 1950s she retired from the ranch and lived near her daughter Loveta in Lubbock.
