1900: Thomas J. Isbell and wife Brazelia lived in Fannin County, Texas. The census gives his birth as Jan 1855. His mother "Jane Culver," widow (born Oct. 1823 TN) lived with them (Susannah Jane Culver Isbell Culver). However, the census lists her relationship to head of household as "mother-in-law." Evidently the census taker thought Susannah was Brazelia's mother.

1931: Brazelia Isbell died Hall County, Texas

1940: Not found on the census. T.J. Isbell probably died 1931-1940. The Foster Family Tree gives his death as 1930, though Barzelia's death certificate indicates her husband was living.
