Texas, USA
Death: Jul. 31, 1886
Dallas
Dallas County

Hermione was twenty years of age at death. She is listed in the Dallas City Directory for 1886 the year she died. She is the only known child buried with her parents in Greenwood Cemetery. She was one of nine children. (contributed by C B Mays)

"Hermione Braswell, third daughter of Judge S. N. and M. A. Braswell, was born in Mount Pleasant, Texas, March 12, 1866. Hermione grew up to womanhood in the city of Dallas, Texas. Her noble Christian character endeared her to all the citizens of Dallas, as evidenced by merchants and business men generally closing their draped doors to attend her burial, and it was said that the funeral procession was the largest known in the history of Dallas, up to that time. She never married; died July 31, 1886."
(p.27, Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall Families, by Grant James Anderson of Westminster, Texas, pub. 1909)

Hermione was never married and did not have any descendants. I am the closest living relative since her sister Neal Beall Braswell Garrison is my great grandmother.

Wow - Ms. Hermione seems to have made quite the impression on the city of Dallas. She must have been a wonderful young lady. Rest in peace.
