    Notes 
    • As told by Linda Grantham Cheesman - February, 2008: Avis died when I was a little girl. But I was there when she died. My grandmother was a LVN and she nursed Avis. She died from cancer, I think uterus, but to this day I can still remember the smell. I would sit with her and she would talk about things but being so young I can't remember about what. She had a porcelin cat that sat next to her door. I spent hours sitting on the floor playing with it. Great-grandma Grantham (Beulah Viola Rogers Grantham) lived with her in Premont, Texas.
