207 February 25, 1937 - December 12, 2013
Gail was born at home on February 25, 1937, in Coleman, Texas. He was the son of a Baptist minister and spent many days of his early life on the front pew of a church or a revival tent as his father's ministry moved the family from Coleman to Abilene, to Brownfield, and finally back to Abilene. While living in Brownfield, Gail met Josie Grissom, who became his high school sweetheart and shortly thereafter, his wife, lifetime spouse, and best friend. Gail and Josie married on June 3, 1956, and immediately began traveling around Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Pennsylvania as Gail worked for companies that specialized in building churches. While traveling and building churches, the couple had their first son, David, while in Amarillo, Texas, and their daughter, Pam, in Abilene, Texas. In 1966, Gail and Josie moved from Fort Worth, Texas, to Norman, Oklahoma, with the intent of starting a construction company and establishing a permanent home to raise their family. Upon moving to Norman in 1966, Gail purchased an APCO station with the intent of going into the oil jobber business, and that business later grew to include both Derby dealerships as well as Conoco. Shortly thereafter, their youngest child, Brent, was born in 1967. In 1967, Gail asked his older brother, Gary, if he would consider leaving Otis Engineering and joining him as business partners. Gary agreed to leave and join him. Over the next 46 years, until Gail's passing, Gail and Gary were partners in everything from being oil jobbers and oil-field drillers to commercial construction, land development and rental property management. Their business took them all over the country and built a lifetime bond between not just brothers but best of friends. Gail grew to love Norman and loved the relationships and friendships that were built over those 46 years. His clients became his friends and his friends became his clients. Above all else, he was a man of integrity, and he spent a lifetime looking to make relationships with men of like-mindedness. Gail was a man that maintained friendships for a lifetime and understood the time, energy and concern often needed to maintain friendships during difficult times. He gave gladly. He loved talking with interesting people with different points of view. Gail loved learning and spent a life in pursuit of that love. He studied geo-chemistry and mathematics at Hardin Simmons while living in Abilene and mathematics and computer science at TCU while living in Fort Worth. He so wanted to ignite that same love of learning in his children and grandchildren that he established early on, provision for every family member to pursue their educational goals in college. He loved hosting international students at the University of Oklahoma, and he and Josie would cook dinner weekly during the school year to have the students over to discuss their families, their culture and their experiences. As a father and husband, Gail's language of love was being a provider, as well as being quick to offer a hand at any task that would get his hands dirty. He loved to travel anywhere with Josie and also cherished his travel and time with best friends, Bob and Nancy Thompson. He always felt like doing was learning and loved taking trips that involved new experiences that required action and involvement. He always wanted his time of rest to be interesting. Gail would often state that most of the earth was covered in water, and God was telling us that most of our time should be spent on the water. That was his justification to all of us why he needed to spend so much time on his boat at the lake and why we should be down there with him. His boat was his refuge and where he would mentally work out troublesome decisions. Gail named his boat "Intrinsic." The moment that he reached the boat, he was happy and relaxed. His other relaxing pastime was tinkering with his 1947 Ford Convertible, which he named "Jenny." Gail loved helping others and giving back to the community. He spent some of his favorite time working with the planning department and the development departments with the City of Norman. He would always say that he hoped that his time spent working with the city would make Norman a better place to live. He was a quiet man that did not like the spotlight and spent a lifetime hoping to avoid any recognition for his work. He worked with numerous charities all over Norman and most recently, loved his time working with Food & Shelter for Friends. He would always say that there are a lot of people hurting in Norman and that Food & Shelter for Friends was doing a great job for those needing help. Gail was a longtime member of First Baptist Church in Norman and really loved the Hopper Sunday School class there. Gail was preceded in death by his father, Wayland Sherrod Armstrong; and mother, Daisy Ray Hughes Armstrong. He is survived by his beloved wife, Josie Armstrong, of the home; son, David Armstrong and wife Belinda; daughter, Pam Wyrrick and husband John; and son, Brent Armstrong and wife Shauna. Gail is also survived by grandchildren, Tyler Armstrong and wife Meredith, Jon Armstrong and wife Sara, David Blaine Armstrong and wife Haley, Clay Wyrrick, Haley Eddington and husband Randall, Drew Wyrrick, Blaire Wyrrick, Emily Armstrong, Abby Armstrong, Blaine Armstrong, and Molly Armstrong. He is also survived by great-grandchildren, Sam Armstrong, Addie Armstrong, and Emerson Armstrong. Gail is also survived by brothers, Gary Armstrong and Don Armstrong; as well as sister, Betty McBryde. Memorials can be made to Food & Shelter for Friends, 104 W Comanche St, Norman, OK 73069. Visitation - Tuesday, December 17, 2013, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Havenbrook Funeral Home, 3401 Havenbrook Street, Norman, OK 73072. Memorial Service - Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 211 W. Comanche Street, Norman, OK 73072. Gail and his family were placed in the care of the Vice Family at Havenbrook of Norman, OK. Online condolences may be shared at www.havenbrookfuneralhome.com

235 Martha Patsy Avent

While other girls dreamed of dolls, Martha Patsy Avent dreamed of war adventures. At her father's knees, she had listened to daring exploits of her great grampa, Colonel Thomas Avent. And she wanted to be just like him. One day she would marry a soldier, too. When she read the letter Colonel Tom wrote to Governor Spotswood in 1727, she imagined herself helping to ease the tensions between the Saponys, the Cotobers, and the English. She lived in the tales her grandfather, William Avent, had told about his days in the War of Spanish Alarm when he had been an ensign in the Northampton County 1748 uprising. He died 8 years before Martha Patsy had been born in 1768

Being a precocious child, Martha Avent, with a lot of French blood in her veins, ran off to help in the American Revolution by carrying water and ammunition to the fighting men. She gave her name as M. Patrick and would have pulled it off, had her great uncle Peter Avent not spotted her and took her home. In 1781 Martha Avent saw a soldier that she decided would be the father of her children - Moses Cox.

He did not ask to marry her, she asked him.

In about four years they were in a caravan of Avents, Pierces, Coxes and Powells, headed for a wilderness spot where the US government had given them a lot of land to show their gratitude for Moses' years of fighting. This area became known as Coxtown on Avent Road. Up on the top of a hill, they set aside a two-acre spot for their cemetery. The first one to be laid to rest there was Martha Williamson Cox, wife of James Aaron Cox, son of Moses Cox. (From the Bill Cox family website)

(The following comes from a book called Possums Run Over Their Graves. The author, Rebecca Newsom Dobson, calls it "genealogical folklore" which to me means it is based on stories that have been handed down through the years, so I consider it worthwhile to pass along to you. by Polly Morse)

"The littlest sojer in the Revolution" as Martha Patsy Avent was called, was a precocious child - she read well at age five, ran the Avent Ferry at age eight, carried water to the soldiers at age nine and married at almost seventeen, to Moses Cox, a soldier she had served water when he was feverish. Patsy's dark hair, cropped short, her long and lean body made her appear as a 12-year-old boy. She wore buckskins, homespun shirt and homemade moccasins. She could not say goodbye to her family and risk a flogging, so she whipped her horse into a gallop, eyes alert for enemy soldiers riding hard. She was in the saddle for ten hours toward the flaming sky to the East. She stopped for water and a stretch only twice. The redcoat thought Patsy was a runaway boy, let her pass their lines unharmed.

"Hey boy, bring me another swig. You take me for a camel."

"You?re not high enough for a camel." Patsy sprinkled water on the man's brow. She did not let him drink, but just wet his parched lips.

"I'll get ye for thet, efen it takes me the rest of the war," he said.

"I'll be back soon" she promised. The commander gave her a note for Colonel Green advising him of Cornwallis' Raid. She must get through.

"This is very important, young Avent," the officer told her.

"I'll get it there, sir." About the time she mounted the horse, she saw Uncle Peter and pulled her slouchy hat farther down over her ears. He would flog her for sure if he knew. Then she lit out.


Patsy always kept to a job, no matter how it hurt. When she returned she had saddle sores, and was walking as if something had dropped in her buckskins. The men laughed; she refused any help for fear they would discover her secret.

The Commander saw her predicament, gave her a box of medicated salve, sent her to a room to sleep on a cot, next to his quarters.

"I believe this boy should go home tomorrow," he sold his aide.
That evening the men passed Barbados Rum around, but Patsy ate her hardtack and water. She slept fitfully when she heard the men crying for water.

"I told you I'd be back" she told a soldier named Moses.

Patsy swabbed down the cannon, served rations to the helpless men, scoured and swept their quarters, put clean linens on the cots, washed their clothes in the nearby spring.

One teen-age soldier, beardless and armless would not eat--"no arms left," he said-"blowed clean off-somers back in Dobbs or Guilford. I would eat some rosineers, efen I had me a mess of them. You can bathe my face efen you brang me some rosineers."

Her mother had told her that since the Garden of Eden, a woman must pay for sins, more than a man. This day her sins found her out.

A thin stream of blood came onto her buckskins. There was no way out now, but explain to the commander. He turned white, then green, and finally settled for a gray color in his face. His eyes were on her, but not really seeing her. "God, all mighty knows" he yelled.

"I'll be court-martialed for sure now-letting a dumb girl in here -mongst these men--Lord in Heaven--Tell me how to get out of this one--."

Lieutenant Peter Avent told him he would take the kid home - he knew her parents. And this was the short, but sweet hitch of M. Patrick Avent, Revolutionary Sojer.


John Avent, father of Patsy, was tired-looking and limping from battle wounds he received. The entire place was weed-ridden. She cleared out what she could do with an old man's help.

Her brother, Will had run off at 14 to be a preacher, so a veteran helped Patsy load the pack mule with gunpowder, yarn, salt and coffee.

"Don't ye know me sojer?" she asked the man.
"Should I?"
"Thought I wuz a boy, didn't ye."
"Well, you shore aint now."

It did not take Martha Patsy Avent but a week to persuade Moses Cox that he should get married, and to her, and migrate to where the government was giving away land in Georgia. They left in a large caravan of settlers in 1786, where James Aaron Cox was born enroute.

Their large land grant was put to the plow and more children helped to plant and harvest the land. They eventually built a large two-story home for their family; but the Indians burned it down in 1812. It took a lot of the fire and iron out of Martha.


John Avent's will left slaves and gold to Martha Patsy; she refused slaves, but put the gold away for her grandchildren. When Nancy Cox married, she was able to take the gold to Alabama wilderness with her.

Possums ran over all their graves...but no flowers grew there.

Mrs. Pilcher was born on November 15, 1922 in Marion County to Roland Dewey Averette and Lizzie Lou Shaw Averette, both deceased. She resided in Sumter, Webster and Worth counties and was graduated from Sumner High School in 1940. She attended Macon Hospital's nursing school and worked at Smith Hospital in Americus.

Mrs. Pilcher was preceded in death by her first husband, T/Sgt. Ivan Pershing Johnson, who was killed in action in northern France on January 6, 1945. They were married on October 26, 1941 and had two children, Betty Louise and Ivan Randolph.

Mrs. Pilcher married William E. Pilcher on February 25, 1949. Mr. Pilcher was a 30-year veteran of the United States Air Force. Their marriage lasted 63 years until his death on October 21, 2012. She made a home for her family at military postings across the United States and Europe, raising her family, often on her own, while her husband was away during the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

While living in Albany, Mrs. Pilcher and her late husband helped organize the local chapter of the Association of Retarded Citizens, working to enrich the lives of special needs children. She was a devoted wife and mother, caring for her developmentally disabled son for 43 years, while at the same time, providing a loving home for her aging mother. After relocating to Lithonia, she volunteered for more than 20 years for DeKalb County Special Olympics.

Her favorite pastimes were bowling, playing bridge, reading cookbooks and vacationing at Mexico Beach. Mrs. Pilcher was a gracious and generous hostess for military functions, family dinners and reunions at her Lake Blackshear home. She enjoyed traveling to Air Force squadron reunions around the country. She was an avid reader until her eyesight failed.

When Mrs. Pilcher relocated to Tift from DeKalb County in 2002, she joined Tifton's First United Methodist Church and the Christian and Fellowship Sunday school classes. She was also a member of Circle 8. She walked humbly with God; she kept the faith.

Her family will remember her for her generosity and compassion to those with special needs. She gave freely of her time to her family, community and church. She left the world a better place because of the way she lived her life.

Mrs. Pilcher was preceded in death by her parents, her husbands and a sister, Eudora Mallard of Americus and son-in-law, Robert F. Morrell. She is survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Roland Boyette and Nell Averette of Sylvester; and by one daughter, three sons and two daughters-in-law, Betty Pilcher Morrell of Tifton, Ivan Randolph and Sharon Pilcher of Ozark, Alabama, William Herbert and Darlene Pilcher of Tifton and Bruce Alan Pilcher of Thomasville.
