    hi, i am the granddaughter of Beulah Nabors. I would like to clear up something. Beulah was first married to Harold McCall who died when they had only been married 2 months. She then married George Leonard Conger in CA and they had 1 daughter Beulah Mae Conger Bell Wood. They divorced in the late 1920’s. Beulah married Doc Young in the early 1940’s. Beulah Mae Conger Bell Wood has 3 daughters of which I am one.

    Thank you
