Wife of Jaycen Edward "John" Isbell. A History of Texas and Texans vol. 5 refers to him as J.M. Isbell.
The 1900 census gives her name as Georgiana while the 1920 census says Georgina. Others say Georgia Anna. She spelled her name Isbell in the 1900 census, but Isbelle in the 1920-40 censuses.
La Porte Chronicle, Jan. 24, 1907, page 4:
The marriage of Mrs. Georgia Isbelle and R. Marshall was solemnized at Morgan's Point last Sunday afternoon. The ceremony was performed by Rev. E. Loose, pastor of the Baptist church, of which the bride and groom are members. The wedding took place at the home of the bride in the presence of a few friends. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall went to Houston Tuesday evening where they will reside and where Mr. Marshall, who was formerly the local representative of Mistro Bros., will engage in the mercantile business.
La Porte Chronicle, June 20, 1907, page 4: "Mrs. R. Marshall is the former Mrs. J. M. Isbell."
At the time of the 1910 census, she was back in Wellington, listed as "Georgia Isabel," widow, with her two daughters, Jan and Lucille.
In 1940 she was shown as Georgia Isbelle living with her son-in-law Joseph B. Fortune and two of his children but he and her daughter Jan had already separated. Jan Fortune went to Hollywood and by 1948 had divorced.
Dallas Morning News, Feb. 21, 1951, Section III p.1:
WOMAN BADLY HURT BY PURSE SNATCHER
A brawny 6-footer in ragged work clothes seriously injured a 65-year-old Oak Cliff woman Tuesday afternoon when he shoved her down in the 200 block of West Ninth, snatched her purse, then fled. The victim, Mrs. J.M. Isbelle of 312 West Ninth, was transferred to Methodist Hospital after treatment at a clinic. She will undergo surgery for him and internal injuries. Three boys who saw the incident gave police a description of the robber.
Dallas Morning News, April 1, 1951, part 4 p.2, gives her age as 79 and her name again as Mrs. J. M. Isbelle, "whose husband died 50 years ago." (ref., "Day for Herself, Six for Others," by David Foree.)
