Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 6, 1878
Death: Apr. 2, 1965

Daughter of
William H.E. Preston
Ellen Terhune Preston

Sister of
Frank W.Preston

Wife of
James A. Owens

I don't believe Nanetta and James had children. Every Census record from 5 years after they were married doesn't mention children.

Census records show Nanetta to have been born September of 1878 not 1882 as other records have indicated. In the 1900 Census it shows Nanetta as 21 years old, single, still living with her parents and working as a shirt joiner. By the next census, Nanetta is no longer living in her parents house, and there are no more records of her. She may have married, or moved away and her name was not recorded properly. Update Nanetta married a James A. Owens around 1905 that's why she didn't appear on the Census records of 1910, 20 and 30.
