As of the 1900 census, Ella Thomas (nee Blount) had two children in total and one living as of 1900, her daughter Mamie who was three years old at the time. This census also lists Ella's occupation as a teacher.
2/11/12 Wendell McDavid informs us that Julia Parks was the name of Ella's daughter. This presents some confusion to be reconciled between the 1900 census listing Mamie Thomas and the informant Julia Parks listed on Ella's death certificate.
While Willie Blount (one of Ella's sisters) was so full of life, Ella was much more passive in her personality. Basically she stayed in Houston and had a sparse existence. She did not have much in the way of material things and somehow maybe was a bit sensitive to that fact.
The last time Wendell saw Ella was in Beaumont, TX in 1950. Located on the Gulf. the largest Texas city east of Houston and best Known for the great Spindletop gusher 1901.
Previously or earlier in the same year, Ella had been in Los Angeles visiting and Percy and Wendell were taking her on an outing in a 1950 Buick with very heavy car doors. They thought that Ella was in the car safely but when they closed the door, it slammed on her hand. Everyone was greatly alarmed.
Ella died a widow a few days after her 55th birthday on January 19, 1956.
