William Edwin Carlisle, the ninth child of John Milby and Sarah >Elizabeth (Ashby) Carlisle, was born 30 Apr 1849 in Hopkins Co KY and died 1 Jan 1921; he is buried in Winsor, Louisiana.

He married Laura Anna Root 18 Nov 1869 and they were the parents of Erskine Sawyer Carlisle, the grandfather of Marilyn (Carlisle) Mitchell.

It is told William Edwin Carlisle was a big man who was very good natured. He owned a horse named Baldy and he requested if Baldy was still living when he died, that his coffin be put into the spring wagon and that Baldy take him for his last ride to his grave and it was done.

William Edwin Carlisle and family lived in Hopkins and Webster County. See family photo.
