A note in The Fertile Branch booklet, which was compiled and written by "Aunt Jean" (as I knew her), says that Imogene was born on Easter Sunday. Years ago, I determined that 12 Apr 1925 was, in fact, a Sunday.

What day Easter Sunday falls on is set based on the Spring Equinox and full moon, specifically Easter Sunday is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox.

The Spring Equinox is on March 21-22, and the moon has a 29-day cycle. So, depending on when the first full moon after March 21-22 happens that means that the next Sunday will be Easter. In this case the full moon could have been between the spring equinox and April 19, roughly. According to, an Easter Sunday calculator, April 12, 1925 was in fact an Easter Sunday.

Where did the name 'Imogene Maclin*' come from?
In fact, a woman named Imogene Maclin was a former neighbor Beulah Florence Veal in Bridgeport, Tx. Later Mrs. Veal's neighbor moved to Tennessee. Reba accompanied Beulah Florence to visit her former neighbor's home in Tennessee.

On the obverse side of Imogene Maclin's birth certificate, her father's name was recorded as Asa 'Edward' Veal. Asa Edwin often went by 'Ed' and his middle name was recorded on his own birth certificate as 'Edwin'. so, this error on Imogene's birth certificate was probably made by someone who thought that 'Ed' was short for 'Edward'.

* Aunt Jean's birth certificate documents her name as Imogene Macline. She herself wrote it as Maclin.
