Grace Maria Bransford Bulls
Felix M. Bransford circa 1885
She became a homesteader in Oklahoma and he became a prominent lawyer in Ft. Worth.
She...is my grandmother...he...I never knew.
She moved to Donley County via wagon and had 6 children, one of which was my father Roy Lynn Bulls.
I have her rocker, the one given to her by her father. I painted it purple. My dad told me one time that if I went to the trouble and expense to repair it, I could paint it whatever color I wanted.
In it, I rocked and nursed my own Grace Maria...and then rocked her daughter Betty Beatrice.
Family trees are the most fun trees of all to climb!
