    1. [S1853] Death Certificate, WV State Dept of Health, Div of Vital Statistics, (http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_dcsearch.aspx).
      Death record states birth date as Mar 29 1873 and death date as Dec 29 1924. But it also specifies age as 51y 9m 26y, which would put birth date at Mar 3 1873. A birth date of Mar 3 1872 has also been reported by some researchers, although one, direct descendent Dennis Newell, advises that a birth date of Mar 29 1872 is also a possibility. This would be supported by the fact that her age was given as 8 in the 1880 Census, and as 28 in the 1900 Census, with birth date listed as March 1872. It would thus appear that her actual date of birth was Mar 29 1872.

    2. [S2018] 1880 Census, Harrison County, WV (Coal District).
      Age given as eight.

    3. [S2019] 1900 Census, Taylor County, WV.
      Age given as 28, with date of birth March 1872.
