Mrs. Mary Wynne Celebrates Her Ninety-seventh Birthday
Beeville Bee, Friday, October 1, 1897
Lacking but three years of a century and as spry and sprightly as a girl of sixteen summers, Mrs. Mary Green Wynne celebrated her ninety-seventy birthday on the 25 of September, 1897, inst. at the residence of her granddaughter, Mrs. F. M. Howard.
Mrs. Wynne was born in the Old Dominion in 1800 and is one of twelve children of B. B. Jackson and Hannah Jackson Tucker, and is thus doubly related to those two famous families, which have been so prominent in the history of the country.
She was married in 1825 to
Burwell Malone and immigrated to
Alabama, then a pioneer state of the union. Here was born her two
sons, the late Col. Frederick J. Malone
(6-12-1826--12-5-1891) and Thos. B. Malone,
who now at the age of seventy-three is as energetic as a man of
thirty. Her husband, Burwell Malone died in 1828 and in 1841 she was
again married to Capt. Lewis T. Wynne
of Tennessee, who though passed the requisite age, entered the
Confederate army at the outbreak of the war and died in the service
from natural causes in 1863. From this marriage
Capt. Jack Wynne of Wharton County is
the only issue. He is now 52 years old. Shortly after the war she
moved to Texas, her two sons, the Messrs. Malone, having served in
the Mexican War and settled in this state.
