Born in Lincoln Par., LA Buried in Corinth Cemetery Married Charles W. Singleton February 1, 1891
Sinthia Susan “Susie” was anxious to live life. She took a husband at age 16 and had her first child one year later. Her husband, Charles (b 1866; d 1933) was 25. In their life together eleven children would be born. Three died in childhood and another died as a young adult.
The children are:
Franklin Taylor b 19 Feb 1892 d 1950 buried Corinth
Odie Rance b 15 April 1894 d 21 Feb 1973 buried Salem

Neelie Patton recalled that Susie’s family lived close to Providence Cemetery about 7 or 8 miles from her father, Frederick’s, farm. In those days that was a long trip especially when you consider travel was by horse and wagon. So she does not remember much about this family. Vyonnell Vining remembers that her grandfather, Frederick, used to say that Susie was the best woman in the world except for his wife.
When Susie died in 1918 there were five children from ages 5 to 15 years. We do not know who helped her husband Charles with the children. Perhaps the older children or other family members helped out. Charles did take a second wife, Dallas Mitchell (1879-1932). No children were born from that union.
