  • Notes 
    • Benjamin Alexander William Lamar Norton (known as "Uncle Bawl" in the family, but William L. Norton professionally) was born to Dr. William Norton in Bedford County, TN in 1839.

      Mr. Norton was reared in Bedford County and acquired his education in the common schools.  He worked on the farm until his 28th year (about 1867). He entered the Confederate service at the beginning of the war, joining Company E, First Tennessee Infantry (Turney's), and served throuhout the war, receiving several wounds, at the second battle of Manassass, and at Gettysburg, the first necessitating the use of crutches for six months.

      About 1867 he began a business of merchandising at Normandy, Bedford County.  In 1876, he removed to Tullahoma and continued his business for six years, when he retired and entered a dry goods house as a salesman.

      He married Allie Marbry of Shelbyville in October 1881.  They had 4 children.

      He was a member of the A. O. U. W. and K. of H. fraternities.

      He was appointed postmaster under President Cleveland and assumed the duties of his office 16 November 1885.

      Some sources give his first name as Benton instead of Benjamin.
