Lula Elizabeth, granddaughter of Thomas S. Jordan

Lula Elizabeth Jordan was born on February 22, 1887, the third of six children born in Ashland, Alabama, to J. W. and Elizabeth Jordan.

On February 12, 1905, Lula married John Respus Carwile, a Methodist minister. They were married 67years before his death in 1972.


Lula was an ideal "preacher's wife" who always kept a clean and well organized house and enough food for anyone who dropped by to share a meal. She died in 1989 at age 102. She was a wonderful grandmother, and I miss her.
