Roxanne Brown Denton was my grandmother. She was married to Silas A. Denton in 1919 at age 18 yrs. Silas died of typhoid in January, 1920. My grandmother was left carrying a child, my mother. Roxanne never remarried, but put herself through school and became the first registered medical librarian in the State of Texas. She retired from Nan Travis Hospital in Jacksonville, Texas, shortly before her death in 1972. She was a remarkable woman.
