I B Lewallen

  • Birth 8 Oct 1911 Texas, USA
  • Death 3 Jun 1963 Baylor County, Texas, USA
  • Burial Seymour, Baylor County, Texas, USA
  • Plot near the front left of the entrance
  • Memorial ID 84889597

Born to James Monroe Lewallen (1878-1947) & Fronie Elizabeth "Winnie" Parker Lewallen (1881-1966).

I B married Hazel Lolafay Brown (1914-2005). He was a ranch hand, and he died at age 51.

Four children:
• Mary Lou Lewallen Scribner (m. Leroy Scribner)
• John Edward Lewallen of Holliday, TX (twin to Betty)
• Betty Lewallen Davis (twin to John)
• Dora Lewallen Davis

I B was this man's given name. The initials did not stand for anything. As the story goes, his family was trying to pick a name for him, and several people placed suggestions into a hat for choosing. Someone pulled a name out of the hat, but it was blown away by the wind before it could be read. His mother exclaimed "Well I be" at that moment, so they named the baby I B.
