Anna Janette Stough


(Photo taken in 1922, when she was 54 years old)

The following information was supplied by Mary Lou Trice Lisenbe, granddaughter of Anna Janette Stough. I made some modifications to what she supplied, but kept the basic format the same.


    Anna Janette Stough was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on April 23, 1868, the daughter of Charles Alexander and Sarah Elizabeth (Kitchell) Stough. She was one of four children born to Charles and Sarah, the others being John Charles Frank, George Dean, and Lotta May. Her father and one of her brothers worked for the railroad. By the time she was 10 years old, the family was living in Texas. The family appears in the 1880 census records for Waco, McLennan County, Texas. In 1886, they were living in Ft. Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. According to her son William, she married Camille Edward Trice in Waco on December 24, 1888, but their marriage license came from Tarrant County, Texas. Perhaps they acquired their marriage license in Tarrant County and got married in Waco, which was in McLennan County. 

     The first child born to Camille and Janette was William Louis Trice, who was born in Ft. Worth. Soon after his birth, they moved to Waco where their next 2 children were born: Charles Edward Trice in 1896 and Leland Trice in 1898.  Early in 1901, the family moved to Mexico City, Mexico where Camille became involved in the real estate business, which  involved large tracts of ranch land.  The family moved back to Ft. Worth 2 years later where Camille remained in the real estate business.


     In the summer of 1911, Camille and Janette separated. She moved to Waco and worked in the Methodist Orphanage.  Her sons Charles and Leland were enrolled in Polytech College in Ft. Worth for one year.  Their older brother, William Louis, worked with their father.  Toward the end of 1912 Anna Janette's 3 sons moved to Waco to live with her. 

     In 1913, Janette was working for Sanger Brothers in Waco as a Sales Lady, and remained there until 1917. Her son William got married in 1919. Janette continued to live with her son Charles until around 1939 when her granddaughter Mary Lou was 3 years old.  She then moved to Yoakum, Texas to live with her sister Lotta, and her husband, Emil Koerth. Janette came back to Waco often to visit and would stay for several weeks at a time. She died in Yoakum in November, 1949 and is buried in Oakgrove Cemetery.
