Charline Gloyd McNabb Only Daughter of Carrie Nation Buried in Richmond, Texas

A while ago I had posted on a baby Robert McNabb. There is a family of the McNabb's buried here in Richmond, Texas. I am taking pictures of the different graves and posting on

Today I received an email telling me that the Charline Gloyd McNabb I had listed at Morton Cemetery was the only daughter of Carrie Nation and her first husband Dr. Gloyd . The following is her obiturary. Read more information on Carrie if you like at

McNABB - Richmond, Tex., June 13.-(Spl.)- Mrs. Charline Gloyd McNabb died in a San Antonio sanitarium Tuesday and her body was brought here Wednesday morning to the home of her step-sister, Mrs. Lela Williams, where the funeral took place, the Rev.
