  • Notes 
    • Information from Robert Samuel Cromartie, MD (1869-1965)
      The following information was found in a book that was in the possession of Robert Samuel Cromartie III. The book included information saved by his grandfather on his family. Much of the information is from the obituary of Annie Cromartie Council.

      Graduated from Agnes Scott College, Atlanta, George, and after completing her education, she came back to Bladen to teach in the public schools. In early womanhood she was wed to Alexander McAllister Council, thus uniting two of the county's most prominent pioneer.

      The obituary read as follows: "She was formerly a member of the Battle of Elizabethtown Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, releasing her membership when she was physically unable to attend the meetings.

      Mrs. Council was a woman of the highest type of Christian character, and one of the best loved women in the county.
      Keenly interested in every movement for the public good, she worked faithfully in the church and civic affairs.
      A devoted wife and mother, a true and loyal friend, a consecrated Christian, she embodied the highest type of womanhood, and her memory will be long be blessed in the community in which she lived.

      She is survived by three daughters: Mrs. George Sloan, Wilmington; Mrs. Evelyn Stuart, Rowland; Mrs. H. Milton Chason, Elizabethtown. By four sons: John C. Council, Winston-Salem; C. C. and G. S. Council of White Oak and M-Sgt. W. J. Council, Camp Lejeune. By one sister, Miss Bessie K. Cromartie, Jacksonville, Fla. By three brothers: Dr. R. S. Cromartie, Elizabethtown; A. Doane and Ben J Cromartie of Garland, RFD; by 22 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

      Christian Advocate, September 20, 1956, p. 15
      Mrs. Annie Mary Cromartie Council was born January 13, 1872, in Bladen County near Garland. She was married to Alex McAlister Council in 1897. She was called to her heavenly home March 29, 1956. Her funeral was conducted in Bethlehem Church at White Oak, and she was laid to rest in the family cemetery. Surviving are seven of her eight children, twenty-two grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.

      Mrs. Council was one who will never die to those who knew her. To the community she was a constant inspiration and challenge. To her close friends she was a wonderful source of joy. To her family she was a perfect channel of devotion and loyalty. To the church she was an example of all it stands for in the expression of a human soul. To all who knew her she was a conveyor of high and enduring qualities of true culture and religion.

      Mrs Council will be remembered by her pastors as one whose love for and knowledge of her church is surpassed by none. Last March, when a divine hand reached out from heaven's doors, Mrs. Annie Council grasped that hand with an inner joy and dignity that becomes one who has achieved sainthood.
      A former pastor who shares with those who love her most - Willis R. Stevens.
