OBITUARY OF DRUCILLA SERGENT

On December 4, 1874, God sent a flower to decorate the home of Enoch (Chuck) and Polly Ann Craft, a little daughter. She was so pretty and so humble that they chose one of the Biblical names for her, Drucilla. Here on Millstone Creek, she grew to a fair and beautiful young lady and always gladdened the hearts of Uncle Chuck and Aunt Polly Ann, and the rest of the family.
August 19, 1893, she placed her hand in the hand of Ison Sergent and cowed to God that she would be to him a true, devoted, and obedient wife until death do us part. This vow she kept to the letter. Isom departed this life in May of 1920, leaving Aunt Sillar with eight (8) children whom she raised and educated as well as she could. She remained true to her vow to Uncle Isom, living a widow for almost 40 years.
The children are Enoch and Sarah Elizabeth of Camp Branch, Sam of Democrat, Ben who lost his life serving his country, Archie of Charlestown, Ind., Joe of Essex Maryland, Bill and Isom Jr of Millstone.

And much more……………….
