The gravestone of Rev. W. D. Godwin has his name on one side and the names of his daughter and sons on the other side. Notice that the side of the stone with the daughter and sons names reads, "Alice C Godwin Morrow, W E Godwin, A M Godwin, Dau and Sons of Rev W. D. Godwin." The inscription on Rev W. E. Godwin's headstone does not mean that all of his children are buried in Butters Cemetery. I AM LEAVING THE POSTING ON THE BUTTERS CEMETERY SITE TO CLARIFY WHERE ALICE CEO GODWIN MORROW IS AS ACTUALLY BURIED.

Alice Cleo Godwin Morrow IS NOT buried in Butters Cemetery. She is buried in Newlin Cemetery, 2 miles north of Singer, Louisiana. Go to the Newlin Cemetery findagrave web site, and a picture of her gravestone is posted there. The web link is: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=6807683

Alice C. Godwin's Obituary follows: "Morrow – Mrs. Alice C. Morrow was born April 30, 1849 and died June 8 1919. She was the eldest child of Rev. and Mrs. W. D. Godwin. She spent her early childhood with her parents in Big Cane, Louisiana. Later her parents made their home in Rapides Parish. This beautiful home during the Civil War stood with its doors open to stricken widows, orphans, and any needy person. Later she married Mr. Edwin E. Morrow and they returned to Big Cane where they lived a happy and prosperous life until his death. Seven children were born to them. The Morrow home was known for and open for its generous hospitality. Mrs. Morrow would take in the homeless and made sure they did not come in vain to ask for help. Her more fortunate friends, called her to their bedside because she was a splendid nurse, and her smiling presence cheered all. Then at any time of night the writer has seen her leave her bed and go to the relief of some poor sick or dying colored person on her plantation who had sent for her. Mrs. Morrow was a woman full of energy and additionally, she had good judgment. She believed in education and progress and was ever striving for the advancement of any community in which she lived. For the past four or five years she had lived with her children, making her home for most of the time with her youngest daughter, Mrs. K. Toler. Her health for some months before her death had not been very good so she went to visit her daughter, Eva Gill of Ruston, trusting that in that healthful town she would soon be well again. Her health seemed to improve while there and her doctors thought that she would soon be strong again. On Saturday night after she had been at her daughter's a little more than a week she was very cheerful and was counting on her children from Shreveport spending the next day with her but the next morning at six o'clock without a struggle and with a smile on her face she fell asleep in the arms of Jesus. Accompanied by four of her children other members of the family and friends her body was taken to Singer, the beautiful graveyard of her choice and laid lovingly away on June 9th, 1919.She leaves to mourn her loss six children, one brother, and many more relatives and a host of friends. A beautiful spirit has flown, To the God who loaned her to us, And she said "I'm ready to go, For in Heaven I've placed my trust. "For she had cheerfully fought life's battles, No complaining slacker was she –She lovingly and unselfishly had lived ‘Till she knelt at our Father's knee."
