  • Evangeline was born Winnie Evangeline Baird on 22 June 1911.  Her mother died in 1918, leaving her father with three young children, one only 1 year old.  In the 1920 census, her father Guy is working in St Louis for the Railroad Commission.

    Her father passed away also in 1923, leaving Evangeline and her siblings with his sister, and in 1930 his mother is also in the household.  Lula and her daughter Ione are running a boarding house.

    In 1940 it appears to be Evangeline who is listed as a patient in the state mental hospital in Wichita Falls.  She has been here at least 5 years, given the report on location in 1935 in this record.  Note that she is a high school graduate.  No details are listed on any patient concerning their condition or treatment.  In late life Evangeline became a nurse.  The occupation reported on her death certificate is Nurse - retired.  I thought she might have been a nurse in the Wichita Falls hospital but she is listed as a patient.
