Friday's Photo: Thomas Leroy "Whit" Criswell

Mary Louise Criswell (daughter of Thomas Leroy Criswell), 
Thomas Leroy "Whit" Criswell, and Willa Mae Bryan (my father's sister). 

My father, Whit Criswell Bryan was named for his mother's favorite uncle, Thomas Leroy "Whit" Criswell. 

Thomas Leroy Criswell was born on January 18, 1864 in Texas. He was a son of William Moore Criswell and Mary Ann "Polly" Evans. The family moved to Falls County, Texas sometime in the 1860s.  He was the 9th of 13 children and brother to my great-grandmother, Lodema Walker "Dink" Criswell Hairston. Thomas Leroy died on November 13, 1934, in Odds, Falls County, Texas.
