Clairub Augusta "Dollie" (Gardner/Lacewell) Crouch, Clevenger.
There is an Oral Story that goes with Dollie. It has come down through the generations of my families and then to me from my Uncle Quinton Burnell Lacewell. Clairub Gardner is her true name. The Oral Story goes like this.
The Lacewell's, my gg-grandpa 'William Mil Lacewell' & gg-grandma 'Nancy Ann (Pannell) Lacewell' that lived in Marmaduke, Greene Co, Arkansas used to live in Tennessee and were friends to the Gardner's. The mother Gardner had died and the father Gardner said NO One was going to raise his little girl but the Lacewell's. The Lacewell's had moved to Marmaduke, Greene Co, AR. The father Gardner road on horse back from TN to AR carrying Clairub on a pillow because she was so small. When he road up to the Lacewell's my gg-grandma 'Nancy Ann (Pannell) Lacewell' went to the horse. The Gardner father said to Nancy; "You said you have never owned a Baby Doll? Nancy said; I never have! The Gardner father said to Nancy as he was handing the baby to her; 'Then here is your "Dollie". This was the Oral Story!
I know Clairub Gardner's real father's names, it is D. Gardner but not her real mother's name! The Lacewell's adopted Clariub Augusta "Dollie" Gardner, I think before 1902. Dollie is in the "History & Families ~ Est.1833 ~ Greene County, Arkansas Book Vol.1. on page 113. Her Name in the book is Dollie Lacewell and that photo was in 1902.
Thats how she got her nickname "Dollie" was from her real father and that stuck until before she got married to her first huband. Then she started going by the name August Gardner. Clairub 'Dollie' Augusta (Gadrner/Lacewell), Crouch, Clevenger. Her 1st husband was Everett Lee Crouch they married in 1913 in Greene Co, AR. Her 2nd marriage was to Evert Clevenger they married in 1924 in Greene Co, AR.
This Oral Story came down through, my gg-grandpa William Mil Lacewell to his son my g-grandpa Joseph Levi Garrison Lacewell to his son my grandpa Shelby Leroy Lacewell and then to his son Quinton Burnell Lacewell and then from Uncle Quinton to me. I am the gg-grand-daughter of William Mil Lacewell. Clairub "Dollie" (Gardner/Lacewell), Crouch, Clevenger was buried two plots to the south from her adopted mother "Nancy Ann (Pannell) Lacewell" under the last name of her first husband Crouch, even though she was a Clevenger with her 2nd marriage. Clairub Augusta "Dollie" (Gardner/Lacewell), Crouch, Clevenger died of "Tuberculosis"! I found Clairub Augusta "Dollie" (Gardner/Lacewell) Crouch Great Granddaughter. We have exchanged info to each other and she is the one that told me what "Dollie" died of. "Dollie" is the Adopted Sister to my Great Grandpa "Joseph Levi Garrison "Jake" Lacewell".
