      922. Mary Evelyn8 Spain (Bessie Dorman7 Keesee, John Hill6, Thomas5, Thomas4, George Faris3, Richard2, George1)3347 was born 09 March 1909 in Bowie, Montague County, Texas3348, and died 20 August 1995 in DeSoto, Dallas County, Texas3348. She married George Armel Scott3348 21 May 1938 in Henrietta, Love County, Oklahoma3348, son of James Scott and Ginevra Hamilton. He was born 07 March 1904 in Dallas County, Texas3348, and died 20 March 1961 in Dallas County, Texas3348.

Notes for Mary Evelyn Spain:
Barbara Scott Wyche provided the following: Occupation: First Grade Teacher. Church Membership: Wheatland Methodist Church, Wheatland, Texas. She was a member of DAR, #622399, Charter Member of Old Chisholm Trail Chapter in Duncanville, Texas. Computer Code Number: 6-155-TX. She became a member 4 August 1977.

E-mail from Barbara Scott Wyche to CEB, 26 July 1999: Mary got her degree from East Texas State College in 1931 and began her teaching career in Corinth, Texas. She then moved to Dallas County and taught from 1932 to 1938 at Wheatland Elementary, living in half the school building, teaching in the other for a while. It was here she met George A. Scott. They were married 21 May 1938 in Henrietta, Love County, Oklahoma. She became ill and was in a nursing home in DeSoto, Texas, where she died from a heart attack. She never lost her sense of humor and she had all her wits about her until the very end.

__________

Mary Spain Scott lived in Wheatland when her mother died in 1969. I wrote an e-mail asking Barbara Scott Wyche where Wheatland was located. She replied in an e-mail, 26 July 1999:
Wheatland once had a post office called Sprouls, named after the postmaster. However, it was never called anything other than Wheatland in the memory of most people. It was in Dallas County but is now in the Dallas city limits.

Wheatland was at the crossroads of Wheatland Rd. and Hampton Rd. It was neither Duncanville nor Cedar Hill nor De Soto. It contained the Methodist Church and Wheatland Elementary School, my grandfather's gin, a Mobil station we called the Dump where the farmers played (and gambled) dominoes, a little store where we kids bought candy and my grandmother sold eggs and butter, and the homes of the Morris, Whaley, McKissocks, Case and Campbell families plus the home of my Scott
grandparents.

There is also the Wheatland cemetery adjacent to the church and the schoolyard but not part of the church. Some of the pioneer settlers' remains were moved to this cemetery many years ago, but mostly it is neither a family or a church cemetery. It was given the name of Jimmy Brotherton cemetery.
