We have found a couple of beautiful water color or pastel paintings from perhaps 1903-1910. One of the paintings has the name Emma Eunice Shenefelt, the other is of a very young lady and says Creola Fern McVay. It is apparently mother and daughter. We would like to find out information about these pictures, the one of Emma Shenefelt says her mother died in a fireplace and that she was born when a tornado came through the area. We'd like to locate family so they can be returned to the right folks. Does anyone know anything about this family? We do know that Creola was born in Carthage, married a man from Texas and was eventually buried in Minidoka Acequia Rupert Cemetery, Idaho, but that's all we've been able to find.

Hello. I saw your post while browsing online for more information on my paternal great grandmother, Fern McVay. Her husband, my great grandfather, was William Edward Burch and he was from Rockwall County, Texas. I have only just begun my search into my family tree on my father's side and stumbled onto this post, so I'm not 100% certain that it is, in fact, my great grandmother, but I will definitely keep you abreast, as the information unfolds.

Best,
