Horace Crenshaw, Sr
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May 17, 1919, USA
Death: May 27, 1979

Horace Crenshaw (1919-1979) is the son of Harrison Crenshaw and Plummie MNU. He is the twin brother of Harrison Crenshaw (1919-1998). All three are buried in this cemetery. The inscriptions on the gravestones of Horace and Harrison list their birth dates at 2 days apart. Presumably, one birth date is in error.
Horace was born May 17, 1919 to Harrison and his first wife, Plummie in Manningham, Butler County, AL.
In the 1920 census, Haarrison (25) and Plummie (20) have four children in the household: "Jamie (4)" called Gussie in the 1930 census, Hugh (3), and Harrison and Horace, twin bothers (7 months old). Plummie died in 1924.
By the 1930 census, father Harrison had married Arwillie MNU. The household included Harrison (33), Arwillie, listed as "Willie" ( 22), Gussie (14), Hugh (12), Harrison and Horace, Horace enumerated as "Hoice," Henry (7), and the child of Harrison and Arwillie, Pearl (4). Just by the date of Plummie's death, I presume that Henry was Plummie's son.
By the 1940 census, the only child remaining in Harrison's and Arwillie's home is Pearl (13). I have not found a 1940 census listing or any other records for Horace and Lucille. I do not know the names of children they may have had.
