Although both the Cemetery's interment record card and the tombstone show her date of birth as Oct. 9, 1916, Find A Grave contributor David A. French states that family records show her to have been born in 1912. The Social Security Death Index gives Oct. 9, 1912. Both the 1920 and 1930 Craven County NC censuses corroborate Mr. French's information, while the 1940 D.C. census indicates the year of birth to have been c. 1915. On balance, it appears likely that the interment record and tombstone were based on faulty information.
