"Pearlie") Isaiah my paternal Grandmother was sincere, very
independent, attractive and she loved to read and travel.. She
was the mother of four children of which she raised along with the
help of her Mother Ora. She
was a very generous grandmother and she had a very special
relationship with her children and grandchildren.
My Grandmother Ethel was a
committed individual and her word was her bond. I suppose I
wasn't one of her favorites during my youth because committed I
wasn't, but she loved me regardless. She was born in Refugio, Texas on
July 12, 1914 to Ora Riney Davis and Warner Isaiah. She was the
first born of this partnership and the eldest of her mother's five
other children born to Ora and John Shaw.
