2: The early William's family were mainly farmers who lived off of the land. They were hardy, steadfast citizens. Altie Williams didn't have a easy life. She was one of many brothers and sisters. She was sexually assaulted and bore a son. Shortly after this,she got married to Charlie Dorman and began to have a family. They went back and forth between Sanderson and Miami. Grandpa worked in the prison in Stark and in the orange juice factory in Miami. He was a gentle man without much to say, however he did drink. He drank on the weekends and maintained a job during the week. While drinking he would get sassy and sometimes mean. My Mother told me he would want to spank and discipled the kids when drinking. Altie and her remaining children at home (Berneas, Mary Ellen) starting attending the United Pentecostal Church in Miami. Altie found the peace and strength to change her life. She gave Charlie a choice drinking or the family. She told him that if he didn't come home Friday night, she would know that he chose drinking. He didn't come home. Altie put a suitcase of his clothes on the front porch. He ask to
3: come back. Altie said no, not unless he change his ways. To my knowledge Altie and Charlie never lived together again. Charlie lived with the older kids. Later he stayed with Aunt Gussie who was the oldest child. He passed away and was buried in Sanderson. We went to the viewing which was held in Aunt Gussie's house. Charlie was in his bed, his bedroom. Food covered the table and people came and went well into the night. When I realized that Grandpa was in his room. I stayed wide awake and watched his door. Finally I was sent home to sleep the night with relatives. Uncle James came roaring drunk. Aunt Gussie promptly took him by the ear and escorted him to the rear of the house. He stayed out there until he could conduct himself in a timely manner. Aunt Gussie lived in a house that they made. There are many memories that were made there. The heat was turned off at bed time. You would lay beneath many quilts. You felt like a butterfly pinned to the bed. The quilts were so heavy you couldn't move. By the way you still froze. These are some of my memories of my Mother's side of the family. -Dorothy Brimmage.
