Re: Threlkeld Family in ARK, ILL, and FLorida
I "know" Grace Threlkeld. I owned the home her father (Vardy McBee) built in 1914, and I still have some of her artwork and photos. She had a sister, Della, and two brothers. I think their names were Willis and Dean, but I'd have to look at my notes (which are in another location) to know for sure. Her mother was Margaret T. Alford.
They moved to Russellville (Arkansas) from the Indian Territories in Oklahoma.The home was on North Boston Avenue, very near the university.I purchased it in 1995 from V.M.'s grandson (Graces' nephew), and while it was mine restored it and nominated it for inclusion on the National Registry of Historic Places. We lived in the Threlkeld house for almost 10 years, and referred to Grace and Della often. My daughter feels like she grew up with them.You can see the house and the listing here:http://bit.ly/6nqcKihttp://bit.ly/6nqcKi
