Atlanta Marianna "Attie" "Hattie" McKown Bobo
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 22, 1860
Clinton County
Indiana, USA
Death: Apr. 20, 1947

Although there is no doubt that Atlanta was born on Nov. 22, there is conflicting evidence as to whether she was born in 1860, 1861, 1862, or later. She should have been listed in the 1870 census, and her parents and siblings were listed (as "McCowen") in Clinton Co, IN, but Atlanta's name was inexplicably omitted. Consequently, the first census in which she is listed was 1880, where she was listed a "Hattie M. McKown," age 19. The census was taken June 1, 1880, so she hadn't yet had her birthday (which wouldn't happen until November); to be 19 already on June 1, she has to have been born in 1860. Because this is the first census in which she is listed, this is the next best thing to a birth certificate, and, for that reason, 1860 is used as her date of birth on this memorial. Conflicting evidence: The 1900 census says she was 38 years old and says she was born November 1861. The 1910 census was taken Apr. 26, 1910, and says she was 47 years old, which would mean she would have had to have been born in 1862. She has not been found in the 1920 census. The 1930 census said she was 64 years old, which would suggest that she wasn't born until 1865, but that's obviously wrong.
