      (for larger image, click on photograph)

      Her birth year of c.1934 is calculated from the reports that she was seventeen years old at the time of the 1951 trial of Matt Ingram for the alleged crime of assaulting her by leering. In 1951, Willa Jean Boswell apparently had two brothers and two sisters.
