Does anyone know about some watercolor sketches that Miss Nellie Murphree (1882-1982) had done of old, historical homes in DeWitt county?

They were referenced in an article: "Historical Hobby – Retired Teacher Studies Homes" that was on page 12C of the 15 Oct 1961 edition of the Corpus Christi Caller Times. An excerpt from that article: “Miss Nell recruited a Cuero Jeweler and painter, the late L. A. Carter, to do watercolors of the old homes as they appeared during their opulence.”

Also, does anyone know where there might be a photo of Miss Nellie and/or where her collection of research papers and photographs may have been left?

I have been working on a Find A Grave memorial for her which is a work in progress and which can be found by searching in Find A Grave for Nell Murphree in DeWitt County, Texas.
