Note: Her death certificate says she was born in 1899; the gravestone says 1900.
Her first husband was Eugene Howard Cheves, Sr. She was the mother of Carroll Lavelle Cheves, Harley Merle "Mutt" Cheves, Coleen Margaret Cheves, Don L. Mauldin, and triplets, Alma June, Hazel Jane, and Shirley Jean Mauldin.
Thanks to Celia Cheves Edwards for the following information:
My Dad's step-father, John H. Mauldin, was killed in an accident when my G'ma Mauldin was 3 months pregnant with the triplets. So here she was a widow at age 29 with 7 children, 4 of them under 2 1/2 years old.
