Her memory is poor, but she knows she was reared by the Kincheons , in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and that she spoke French when a child. The Kincheons gave her to Felix Vaughn , who brought her to Texas before the Civil War. Mary lived with Beatrice Watters , near Austin, Texas.

Natural Socialite Logo, 2011 Digital Artwork Matthew Thomas's work battles ideas of race, sex, drugs and politics while at the same time confronting notions of social class, body image and death.
