Female 1891 - 1981

Personal Information    |    Media    |    All    |    PDF

  • Born  15 Oct 1891  Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Most later documents give a birth year of 1890, but the 1900 census data gives an age of 8 years and a birth year of 1891. The closer the record is to the time of the event, the more likely it is to be true and more valid than later documents. So I believe she was born in 1891.
