In this day and age most people know that you shouldn't overdose oneself with cold medication. I'm not sure Mary Lynn Woodson Cade knew this in 1960.
Mary Woodson was born January 26, 1919 in Temple, Texas to James Woodson and Mary E. Watkins. Her maternal grandparents were E. T. Watkins and Mattie Maitland, daughter of Alexander Maitland and Mary Oliphant, my great-great grandparents. She died June 13, 1960 in Houston, Texas of antihistamine poisoning at the age of 41.
