Edna is the grandmother of this contributor's husband.
Edna's birth day and month are unclear, but the majority of the sources state she was born May 18th. The year of her birth is even more confusing. According to the 1891 census of Yarmouth Nova Scotia Canada, she was born about 1889. On the 1901 census of Yarmouth Nova Scotia Canada she was born in 1888. Per her marriage record to Arthur Stevens Sr, she was born about 1896. 1920 US census of Wayne County Michigan, she was born ca 1895. 1930 US census of Wayne County Michigan, she was born ca 1893. 1940 US census of Wayne County Michigan, she was born ca 1898. Death record shows her 61 years of age, born 1893. And, her obituary says she was born in 1889 and was 61 years of age (died 1954), do the math, it does not compute.
Since there is no facility to record dates here in the "about" mode, we have chosen to use the year of 1889 as the date.
There is no birth record for Edna, she had never received a Social Security number in the United States.
Since she appeared on the 1891 census in Canada all references to birth years of 1893, 1895, 1895, and 1898 have been disregarded.
Edna's obituary (publication data unknown) reads:
"Stevens - Services were conducted Wednesday afternoon for Mrs. Edna M. Stevens, 61, who died Saturday in Wayne County General Hospital. Carl Johnson of Southwestern Christian Church officiated at the services in the Nixon Funeral Chapel and at Ferndale Cemetery, Wyandotte.
Mrs. Stevens had been admitted to the hospital 48 hours before her death. A resident of 14899 Russell, Allen Park, she had made her home on Farnum street, Lincoln Park, before moving 18 months ago. She was born May 18, 1889, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
Among Mrs. Stevens' survivors are two sons, Arthur of Allen Park and George of Lawton, Oklahoma, and five grandchildren."
