Docia Margaret McElwain Childress
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 15, 1884
Death: Sep. 10, 1948

Doshia Margaret McElwain Childress was the 8th child of 11 children born to Nancy C. Hannah & David James McElwain. She was married to Albert Bismark Childress. She had three children, Edna Lucille, Alma Faye, and Dorothy Lee Childress.

Docia passed away due to hypertension and vascular insuffiency according to her death certificate #31838. The death certificate also shows that she is buried at St. John's Cemetery and that she is the daughter of D. J. McElwain and Nancy Hannah so I believe that Doshia and Docia are the same person. Years of birth and death are the same on the death certificate as on the tombstone.
