My great grandmother.

Dora Belle Avant was born in Henderson County, Texas on November 29, 1871, to Crawford Avant and Evaline Luduska Chambers.

She had one sister, Mary Mollie Avant Young.

Her paternal grandparents were Nathan Thomas Avant and Theodocia Wilson.

She married John Franklin Wood on March 2, 1891, in Henderson County, Texas.

They were blessed with ten children: Luther Nathan Wood, Homer Lawrence Wood, Dallas Franklin Wood, Lela Belle Wood Chapman, Charley Douglas Wood, Mattie Mae Wood Clifton Johnson, Florence Thelma Wood Lambeth, Ruby Lee Wood Little, Winnie Valentine Wood Hyatt, and Oma Fayrene "Fay" Wood Grantham.

She died on July 19, 1911 in Laneville, Texas. She was 39 years old.

Her Texas Certificate of Death has her date of death listed as July 18, 1911.

A very special thank you to Josephine for sponsoring my great grandmother's memorial.
