Extremely sentimental, my mother saved nearly anything that could be clipped and pasted into a scrapbook. And I’m glad she did.

As the result of her preservation efforts, I gained a better understanding of her life and times as a Nacogdoches school girl and then as a wife and mother in Baytown. In 1932 she married C.B. Jones who by then had already worked about four years at the Humber Oil & Refining Co.’s Baytown Refinery.
