Edith Mae "Iddy May" Carter King
Birth: Dec. 28, 1891
Georgia, USA
Death: Dec. 25, 1964
Duval County
Florida, USA

She was the daughter of William Taylor Carter and Lula Victoria Bailey. She married Jack King on June 16, 1918.

My mother has a ring of hers in her possession. I do not believe that she had any children.

A memory from my mother about her:

"I remember that we found out that she had died on Christmas Day in the 60's. Mother said that some of her siblings stayed with her sometimes, and she was terrified of storms. She made them all get in the closet until it was over. Billie never got over it. Mother always said that it was so hot in that closet and she was determined that her kids were not going to be afraid of storms. Guess that's where "God's rearranging the furniture" came from! Mother told me when I was young that one time I told her "I wish he'd get through

We have her 5-year diary from 1962-1967. There isn't anything filled in after Fall 1964. She mostly wrote about going to church, the cemetery, the weather, and TONS about the flowers she planted and what was in bloom.
