This memorial is in honor of Stella Mae Coburn Hall, youngest daughter of Thomas Headley Coburn and Sarah Amanda Honeycutt Coburn.
After her parents died and left her an orphan, young Stella is seen on the 1900 census living in Hill County with her oldest brother, Theodore Patrick Coburn, 28 years old and a farmer, his wife, Mary, and their two daughters, ages two and almost one.
Ten years later on the 1910 census, Stella is living with another brother, Paul Headley Coburn, then age 30, and his wife Maggie in Big Spring, Texas. Paul's occupation is described as fireman on the railroad.
In 1930, Stella Mae Hall is listed on the census as living in San Diego, California. In late October 1932, Mrs. Stella Hall is also mentioned in her brother Hugh Coburn's obituary as living in San Diego.
MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.
UPDATE JUNE 2017: Although I am still unclear as to where Stella Mae's life took her after 1930, a genetic genealogical match to her grandson, James Ghrist, has allowed me to flesh out some of the details.
Stella and William had one daughter, Barbara Armida Hall. James Grice always heard that Stella Mae died when his mother Barbara was born, but documents suggest that may not have been the case.
NOTE: There is a death certificate online for a Stella Hall who died in Galveston, Texas in 1968, but it is NOT OUR STELLA MAE.
