Following from Arlene Riley:1960

“I talked to my Aunt Bug (Naomi Margaret) last evening. She said "Aunt Inez was married to Uncle Jimmy McKinzie first. She had two boys and a girl. Charles is the only one who may still be living, she knows for sure the other two have died and they were older than Charles. (he is the one I met @ Grandma's) Inez lived in Albuquerque , NM most of her adult life. She was remarried after Jimmy died, maybe twice but Bug doesn't know the last names. All three children were with Jimmy. Inez died sometime around 1964.  Charles was a teacher but we don't know where. He would be in his 70's or 80's now.

”She said Rebecca died with pneumonia and when she was dying insisted that her children be taken to Buckner's because she did not want her parents to have them. Measles caused her blindness.”


Mary McKenzie Died Monday at Hopsital1964

Mrs. Mary Inez McKenzie, 72, a former resident of Albuquerque died in a local hospital Monday morning following an extended illness.  Mrs McKenzie is survived by her son Charles of Belen, New Mexico.  She was born in West Texas to the late Frank and Rebecca Chavedo.  She was a school teacher in West Texas for many years, retiring from active life in 1952.  Graveside services were conducted Monday afternoon at the Fairview Park Cemetery in Albequerque.  Funeral arrangements were directed by Rogers Mortuary."

According to Jennifer Mangold Bohannon, her great granddaughter, “I know she had been sent to a sanitarium at some point in her life from having a nervous breakdown, not sure when and where this was.”
Notes for James Gaston (Spouse 1)
James Gaston McKenzie lived in San Simeon, Cochise Co Arizona on June 5, 1917, when he applied for WWI draft card. He claimed exemption on the basis of heart trouble. In his application he described himself as a single stock-raiser, living in the San Simeon Valley.26

His date of birth is given as 27 Jan 1895 on a family tree found in the Luling TX Library.1965

My dad recalls having seen an old photo of James McKenzie riding a horse (or next to one) that was in Mary Belle's possession - he was a very tall man and good looking, dark hair. He thinks my grandfather has some of Mary Belle's items, so I'm most definetly going to go asking and searching now. Her husband was a very rich many owning ranches (that most likely had oil on them) and she was able to live at the Menger Hotel when she got older and didn't want to care for a house.1966
