Harrison Crenshaw Jr (1919-1979) is the third of three generations of Crenshaws named Harrison. His father, Harrison, is also named Jr on his gravestone. Both are buried in the Bragg Hill AME Zion cemetery.
This third Harrison and his twin brother Horace were born about May 19, 1919 to Harrison and his first wife, Plummie in Manningham, Butler County, AL.
In the 1920 census, his father (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, enumerated as "Hoice," Henry (7), and the first child of Harrison and Arwillie named 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). Son Harrison (20, actually 21) had married Josephine MNU (19), and they had a 1 year old son enumerated as Eally, which I believe is a mis-transcription of Early (i.e., Earl). I have not found later records for this family
