Hello Lora,
Thank you for making a memorial page for my Great-Grandmother. I have been doing a lot of work on this family line of mine. I added a copy of her obituary that I found recently. I also have an old family Bible that belonged to her son Lea's mother-in-law and then passed to his wife Mollie, to my Dad, to me. It lists "Mrs. M. W. Breithaupt died March 12, 1906". This is the same date of her death in the obit. If you could change the date you have listed to match this date I would be grateful. I read your description of her situation as a child. I cannot answer if she was related to the family she was with in 1850, but I have found the record that she was basically an orphan, a ward of the state of Louisiana until 1858. Sad. Thanks again for making her page. Sincerely, Claire Breithaupt-Bennett

RE: Ed Smith
You should see the parent links now. Would you like to post the obituary on the page? Also, should we put Ed as a nickname and Everett as the first name?

Thanks, Lora. I updated her memorial, correcting her maiden name, adding her marriage record and an HTML link to her brother's memorial. I also sent you a correction for his DOB and birth place per the image I posted to his memorial.

RE: Shook Nalley & Beatrice
Yes, found the obituaries etc and created a memorial for her and did a photo request (maybe there is headstone side-by-side.

Thanks so much for you finding his burial! It was an exciting find and I did do more research trying to find her.

I found it interesting that Bernice's obituary gives a different name for two of the three daughters. The one that gave a married name I was able to find her under the married name. The other two must have gone by middle names or something when whoever living submitted the info on Beatrice.

I also found the "Card of Thanks" that Beatrice send to the newspaper after Shook died. The "F C Leonard" business name I found intriguing and want to further research that too.

Thanks so much for all you do and for locating Shook and creating the memorial.

Death Date for Sophia Catherine (Katie) Clark?
I'm asking even with the pic of the headstone, but is the death date correct?

She appears to be reported on the 1920 census in Grant Parish with her husband, Nellie, and Gordon.

Obviously, she's not on the 1910 census.

Did Irving Perry Duke have a second wife named Katie?

James M. King (1854?-1967)
Dear Lora,

Thank you very much for all of this information about James M. King; I already knew a lot of it (due to the newspaper articles which James M. King's descendant(s) previously sent me), but it is good to hear that Mr. King was being consistent in the information which he gave.

Anyway, I found an article from November 1963 about James M. King's claimed 109th birthday where it states that his father's name was Edward King; it's a shame that it doesn't tell us his mother's name or his parents' ages at the time of their deaths, though.

For the record, James M. King's case is already pending on GRG's Table EE:

(His middle name on this table should be changed to Monroe and I already sent the GRG can e-mail about this; thus, hopefully the GRG will eventually get around to fixing his middle name.)

Also, it is worth noting that I previously did an incredibly amount of research on this man--research which I posted here:

However, I could not find an indisputable 1860 U.S. Census entry for this man. Maybe this man's case will eventually get verified without this U.S. Census entry--I am not completely sure. However, given the fact that James M. King would have been the oldest verified man ever at the time of his death (if he will get verified in the future), it would certainly be nice if an indisputable 1860 U.S. Census entry for this man is ever found/located. Frankly, I think that this man was telling the truth and that he was indeed 112 years old (or extremely close to 112 years old) at the time of his death in 1967; however, an indisputable 1860 U.S. Census entry would help confirm that this man indeed lived to age 112 (I followed the same process when I helped research Robert Alexander Early's (1849-1960; lived 111 years and 1 day) case--previously, I and other people found several U.S. Census entries for him from between 1860 and 1940, but it was only after I found that man's 1850 U.S. Census entry when we became sure that this man was indeed 111 years old at the time of his death in 1960).

Anyway, please let me know any thoughts which you might have on James M. King's case. :)

Question About James M. King (1854?-1967)
Hello Lora,

I have been trying to verifying the age of James M. King (1854?-1967) for the Gerontology Research Group for the last couple of years. It appears that I have found all U.S. Census entries for him other than for the one from 1860. That said, you stated here that you were able to read an interview which James M. King gave in 1965:

If so, then it is okay if you will tell me what exactly he said in this interview? Also, do you know exactly what the names of this man's parents were? Did James M. King ever state the names of both of his parents in that 1965 interview?

Anyway, thank you very much.

Best regards,
