|Nigella McCarty Davis Lovelace 1903 - 1997|
This photo of Nigella McCarty was in a box of photos that belonged to my Dad's family. Her name is written on the photo so there was no problem identifying her, but no connection was found between families or family locations.
Her father Joseph David McCarty was born in Erath County in 1867 so there is a chance that he knew my grandfather Redic Eli Bryan, born in 1870 and living in Erath by 1877.
However, today I found a more likely connection. Both my Aunt DeRay Bryan and Nigella McCarty attended Simmons College (now Hardin-Simmons University) from 1920 to 1921.
