Birth: Jun. 15, 1860
Lee County
Texas, USA
Death: Sep. 7, 1906
Washington County
Texas, USA

Wife of Joseph Tristram

Mother of Elsie Tristram Engelhardt, Joseph Tristram, Jr., and Josephine Tristram

Her family moved around quite a bit. Her parents married in Austin County, Texas, and first lived in San Felipe. They moved to Serbin, Texas right before her birth. Her father had a general store there, and was also the postmaster. At that time, Serbin was a part of Bastrop County. In 1866 the family moved to Bellville I guess to be close to her parents who at that time were in the Cat Spring and Millheim area which is just south of Bellville, and then finally to Brenham.

It was in Brenham that she met and then married Tristram.

She was known as a very sweet, kind, generous and loving woman. She taught her children to play piano and to sing, and she would often leave the dinner she was cooking to conduct them with her cooking spoon. The usual end to their practice would be the smell of smoke from the kitchen. Her husband was very kind about the result, and would simply say "Betty, the food is very well done."

She died of a burst appendix.
