Researching the Nolen and Braden Family History
My grandmother, Vela Lorene (Braden) Nolen b. 11/19/1921 d. 06/04/2007, recently past away and I was astounded by how little my dad and uncle knew about their family history. So I have decided to take the information that I found while going through her things and try to put it all together for them and myself. I am new at this and not really sure where to start.
My Grandmother married James Bernon Nolen b.01/17/1923 d. 04/07/1990
She grew up in the Como-Picton area of East Texas and he in Yantis Texas. Her parents were Bessie (Strassner) Braden and Paul Braden
and his were John Bowden Nolen and Daisy Mae (Landcaster) Nolen.
