A new minister came to the church to preach. He had met several of the
Atherton men, and to be safe he called on Brother Will atherton to pray.
Seven men started praying. What the minister did not know qas how the
people of the community kept from confusing the Mr. Bill Athertons. They
were (1) Green Briar Bill, so called because he lived near Green Briar
Church; (2) Sue's Bill, (3) Ette's Bill, and (4) Angie's Bill,
designated by their wives' names; (5) Banty Bill, named from his size.
