About Wastella Kansas 'Cee Cee' Cornett (Neely)

Cee Cee (Wastella) enjoyed gardening; even after she was legally blind she still would garden by feel. Family Bible shows her as Kansas Wastella, but marriage and all other usage was Wastella Kansas. The town of Wastella is in Nolan County, Texas, near Sweetwater, 8 miles NW of Roscoe. It was named by her father, who gave the land for the town site. Many years later (~1999) word was that there was nothing left but a small general store (although, as of 2011, it still has a zip code recognized for that town name. See one Texas history at this link: http://www.texasescapes.com/TexasGhostTowns/Wastella-Texas.htm ) Cee Cee's mother & father are listed in 1920 census as being from Alabama.

When Roy & Wastella lived in Congress Junction, AZ, their house was the last one on Mountain View Drive (now 22950 W Mountain View Dr, Congress, AZ), at the "toe" of Tenderfoot Mountain.
