The above obituary is incorrect as to her date of birth. She was actually born on January 19, 1879, not on March 9, 1879. The date of her DEATH was March 9th so perhaps that is the cause of the error here. Also, she and her husband were living in the State of Washington when the 1900 census was conducted. So they were living in Washington at least seven years earlier than 1907.
