  • Notes 
    • CALLED: Mary Jim. Known as Nannie to her grandchildren. Her sisters would never call her Mary Jim, however. To Aunt Bettie and Aunt Lida, it was always Mary. This was a nickname she picked up in college.

      MARRIAGE: [Marriage,,TX-MAR-01]

      CENSUS: Thus far, I have been unable to locate Mary in the 1930 census in Arkansas, Texas, or Oklahoma. The census was taken in the spring.She was married in September. I find her fiancé enumerated in Portland, Ashley Co., Arkansas. I believe that she was there as a teacher as well. I also find her mother in Dallas, Tx, in the home of Mary's brother Jere.
