You may not get this as it has been awhile since you viewed this site. However, I am a research assistant at Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas, and was looking for a death date for Buena Vista Ivey and found this post.I am working on interviews manuscripts and am currently working on with your great-grandmother, Buena Vista. In the interview she states that she was named Buena Vista by her parents in memory of a friend killed during the Mexican War. It appears to be a good interview done by Luella McNew in 1948. If you want a copy of this interview that is possible if you contact our museum.
