*A Tribute to Mrs. Laymance from her daughter Dusty Nichols:

The hearts of Major Belle Reynolds, Tent No. 4, Jackson, TN., are saddened to relay the loss of our REAL daughter, Eula Jewel Pearson Laymance on June 30, 2009. At the age of 81, and having numerous health issues, she was unable to stay longer with her loved ones on earth.
Eula was the daughter of Charles Melvin Pearson and Sibba Darthula Barnes Pearson. Charles served in the Civil War from 1863-1865 as an enlisted soldier with Company “M,” 1st Regiment, New Hampshire Heavy Artillery. A few years after the war, he moved to Rugby, Morgan County, TN., where he served as a Magistrate within the 12th Civil District. He served the community with honor and distinction and was given a tribute by the citizens of Morgan County for his many years of faithful service.
Orphaned at an age, her father’s Civil War pension was used towards her early education, she (and her younger sister) were placed in the Grace Nettleton Home for Girls (affiliated with Lincoln Memorial University) in Harrogate, TN. Eula was the last surviving child of Charles and Sibba.
Eula enjoyed quilting and was well known for her skill in the east TN area. Many of her quilts were purchased by local businesses and displayed in offices. She enjoyed working in her many flower beds when she was physically able and also loved her vegetable gardens. For many years, she canned her own food. A large amount of it was given to her children, some to family and friends.
She inherited her soft brown eyes from her grandmother Little Bird (Lucy Belle Williams) Barnes. Upon her death, her hair was still very black; another gift from her Indian heritage. With a penchant for privacy, she rarely talked about her early years. Those who were close to her were fortunate enough to glean bits and pieces of her life before she married and had children. The one thing she longed for as a child was a mother but not long after the death of her father (she was 2 when he died), her mother died, and she was forever an orphan.
Eula became a mother for the first time at the age of 20 and proceeded to have three more children one right after the other. Her last child, a son, was stillborn and shortly after wards, she had a hysterectomy, forever eliminating the possibility of future children.
Her years spent at Grace Nettleton weren’t unhappy years, and in many ways, she says they were fortunate years. She was raised in a good “home.” A “home” with indoor plumbing, an education, girls who became special friends, enough food on her plate, the advantage of learning to play the piano, and tap dancing (to name a few). With her younger sister in the same “home,” they forged bond that lasted until her younger sister’s death at an early age.
Her younger sister never had children so Eula’s three children gained more than their fair share of attention and love from their laughing, fun-loving aunt. It was always an adventure when Aunt Bo visited!
Eula was in her twenties when she decided she was going to learn how to drive a car. She lived with her husband and three children on a dead-end gravel road in Morgan County, TN. It was a safe place for her to learn the basic’s before attempting the highway. Since her husband worked during the day, it was up to her to teach herself the general procedures of keeping the car on the road. She also had to learn the basic’s of using a clutch.
When her husband came home from work, he’d usually ask her how many mailboxes she’d knocked down during the day and whose mailboxes they were? She’d tell him, he’d head down the road, put the boxes back up, and repeat the process until she was efficient enough to control the car and use the clutch. Luckily for her neighbors, she was a quick study!
When her eldest daughter turned 15, she decided to get a job. Her husband jokingly told her he was glad she’d learned to drive. He wasn’t sure their new neighbors would be so accommodating.
She dedicated her life to her husband and children. She welcomed everyone in her home and loved nothing better than to cook huge meals for all who entered her door.
After her children married, each Sunday was a day spent together laughing and having fun. Eula’s husband was a jokester. He kept everyone in stitches with his stories and laid back way of looking at life.
Christmas was always a special time of year. Eula passed on many hand crafted gifts to her children. Every available space in her kitchen groaned with the abundance of food she’d been preparing for days.
Eula leaves behind three children; Dusty Laymance Nichols of Cumberland Furnace, TN., Bernice Laymance Hall of Harriman, TN., and Harold Dean Laymance of Oliver Springs, TN. She also leaves behind seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Eula’s female descendants of Major Belle Reynolds, Tent No. 4, Jackson, TN., are Dusty Laymance Nichols, Tammy Melissa Nichols Solomon, Jennifer Rhian Nichols Maxson and Kelsey Alannah Solomon.
