In Reply to: JAMES WYATT RINGGOLD/NELLIE CHAMBLER by Mary Coleman Stewart of 343

James Wyatt RINGGOLD, B: Feb. 22, 1888, place unknown. He married Nellie Adelia CHAMBLEE, (NOTE CORRECT SPELLING) B: Dec. 3, 1894 in Houston, Harris, TX. James D: Aug. 19, 1961; Nellie D: Aug. 31, 1976; both in West Columbia, Brazoria, TX. I believe both are buried in the Columbia Cemetery. They had seven children: Nell, Anna, Richard, Charles, Betty Jane, William Albert and Evelyn Marie. Nellie Adelia was my Grand Aunt, sister of Spencer Allard Chamblee. My mother recalls visiting the family who lived in rather poor conditions with no indoor plumbing, only an outhouse. The baby slept in a dresser drawer! Wyatt was a laborer in the oil fields. The oldest son won a football scholarship to Oklahoma, my mother recalls. I have more on the Chamblees, but nothing else on the Ringgolds, unfortunately.
