Iva Lena McFarland was the 3rd child of Arthur McFarland and Mary Ellen (Terry) Chamblee (1840-1920).

Her mother was previously married. Iva's half siblings were: James J. Chamblee (1860-1934) and Lillian Earl Chamblee (1864-1953). Her full siblings were: Edwin McFarland (1869-1934); Egbert McFarland (1872-?); and Lawrence Winfield McFarland (1881-1940).

On July 8, 1891 she married James Samuel Scroggins in Novice, Texas. For her dowry, her father gave the couple 200 acres of land. Six months into the marriage, James S. Scroggins sold the land and moved the family near Sterling City, Texas. Their first home was a dugout.

Together, Iva Lena and James Samuel Scroggins had 13 children: Sterling, Alta Prudence; James Edward; Noble Dugan "Duge"; Iva Ruth; Jesse Ray; Ernest Buford; Ima Lee; Vera Vayne (1906-1983); Hazel Viola; Loma; Beatrice Austine (1913-1983) and Jack.

After losing four children, Iva divorced James around 1926. She married Asa Wilson around 1930.

Life was never easy for Iva Lena, but she was a strong woman and had a gentle heart.
