born in TN

3 July 1885

Look for a delayed birth certificate. Also order the ss5.

There is a discrepency in the year of her birth. The obit and funeral record (in which the information would be given by the same person), states she was born in 1886. She is listed as being 18, when she marries in 1902, which puts her birth in 1884 (I believe she may have "fudged" the truth just a bit here). She is listed as 36 at her 2nd marriage in 1922, which puts her birth in 1886. The SSDI says 1885.

Obit gives exact date of birth:
