Friday's Photo: Mary Ann "Polly" Evans Criswell

This tintype of my great-great-grandmother, Mary Ann "Polly" Evans Criswell was found in my Bryan family bible. Mary Ann was the mother of my great-grandmother, Lodema Walker Criswell Hairston, and the grandmother of my grandmother, Myrtie Hairston Bryan.  

Mary Ann Evans was born on June 9, 1829 in Alabama. She was the daughter of Evan Evans and Nancy Selman. She married William Moore Criswell in Cherokee County, Texas on August 30, 1847 and was the mother to 13 children. Mary Ann "Polly" Evans Criswell died on May 31, 1883 in Falls County, Texas. She is buried in the Criswell Cemetery
