Nellie Connally was the First Lady of Texas during the 1960s. While serving in this capacity in 1963, Connally was a passenger in the car in which President Kennedy was assassinated. Her husband, Texas governor John Connally, was also present.
By 2004, a photograph depicting Connally around the time of President Kennedy's assassination could be found in the Washington public archive. A copy of the photograph that was in the possession of Clive Finch was shown to Rose Tyler in March 2005.
