Family Friends Friday: Ewin and Howard Lacy

Ewin & Howard Lacy


Ira Ewin Lacy was born in 1898 to Elijah Ewing Lacy and Georgia Ella Hill. He became a member of the Sinking Fork Christian Church in 1918 at the age of 20, but later withdrew his membership. He married Grace Courtney. He died in 1986 and is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky.

His father Elijah first married Amanda Woosley (a descendant of Samuel Woosley) and had at least three children: Omer Lacy (born 28 August 1877), Herschel Loyd Lacy (who married Ora Watts) and Dorothy Euire Lacy, born 1 December 1890 (who married Oscar Sam Malone). In addition, Ewin and Howard had a brother Ralph and a sister Mary Belle (who married L. Ellis Underwood).

Information from: History of Sinking Fork Christian Church 1893-1996 by Betty S. McCorkle.
This original cabinet card was originally in possession of Cephas Bryant (C.B.) Watts and his wife Amy Leora Hardy. The original cabinet photo is roughly 4 ¾ x 6 inches in size. There were no markings to identify the subjects of this photograph, but the names were supplied to me by my grandfather C.B. Watts before he passed away in 1995. His oldest sister was Ora Watts who married Herschel Lacy mentioned above.
