Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 19, 1910
Cotton County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Apr. 2, 2001
Texas, USA

Beulah was born in Cotton Co., Oklahoma to W. George Williams and Marietta "Etta" Holman. Her mother passed away in 1912 and Beulah lived with her uncle, Robert Thompson Holman and wife, Jessie Lyburger in Wichita Falls, TX. When she was about 10 yrs. old she lived with her aunt, Sallie Holman Klepper in Gainesville, Texas for awhile then lived with her aunt Myrtle Holman in Wichita, Kansas.

Beulah worked for AT&T telephone company in Kansas City, Missouri and Cherokee, Oklahoma, where she met her husband, Russell Deyo Terry, Sr. on a blind date. They married at her aunt Myrtle Holman's home in Wichita, Kansas in 1933. They had 3 children.

Beulah was Catholic. She loved sewing, playing golf and yoga. She was a member of the WGA.

Of interest, her grandparents were George Washington Holman and Mahulda Elizabeth "Lizzie" Wampee. George Holman's family came to Republic of Texas on 31 December 1840 from Illinois. Her grandmother was from Yell Co., Arkansas and came to Texas about 1860. It is believed her grandmother was Cherokee, but never any proof. Lizzie's father was killed near Mexia, TX mid-1860. Lizzie and George were neighbors in Limestone Co., TX in 1870, and moved to Jack Co., TX by 1880. Her mother, Etta, was born in Jack Co. 1887. This family were stockman and farmers.

She was my mother.
