GRACE AND FELIX

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!

Beautiful pictures! I noticed your old photo has a crack - do you want to send it to me and I will restore it for you. Send it back along with a digital copy so you can have others made if you want. I will do this for you.
