Death: Nov. 18, 1967

Mrs. Whatley won a plaque from Progressive Farmer magazine in 1934 for being a "Star Scribe" in her territory of Texas and Oklahoma. Her column "Two Cents Worth" appeared in local papers.

Exerpt quoted from "I Found No Skeletons - A Brief History of My Forebears", a biographical paper by Mary Emma Whatley Clarke, 1950:

". . .One day in October 1947 when visiting in my home, 3605 Bellaire Drive, South Fort Worth, my father, Cephas Vachal Whatley, reminisced about his family as follows: 'My grandfather, Vachal Davis Whatley, died many years before his wife Mary. She remarried a man by the name of Enoch Phillips. She outlived him and during her widowhood, made her home with my father {Aaron Brooks Whatley}. I remember well her snapping black eyes, and how she spanked me many a time!

"'I remember too when my great-grandfather Matthew David Lasater (sic) died. Grandmother Phillips went to the funeral and brought back her part of the estate in gold which amounted to $1000, a considerable amount of cash in that day. She also brought back an old rifle and gave to to my father, but it was burned up when the old farm was destroyed by fire. My Grandmother Phillips lived to be 96 years of age and is buried at Flat Rock Primitive Baptist Church, five miles north of Greenville, Ga.'"
