Nellie May Reeves (Memorial# 35666572)
Hi Debbie,

I apologize for the length of this message. I believe that Nellie May's date of birth is 27 Jun 1906 according to her birth certificate in the link below.

I have two Nellie May Alexanders in my family tree, one a 2nd cousin 1x removed and the other a 3rd cousin. Interestingly, both were born in the same city in the same year, same day of the month and both named the same. The only difference was the months of the births and of course, the parents. Nellie May (#1), daughter of Charles Alexander and Lalla Springer Alexander, the 8th child of the union, was born on 27 Jun 1906.

Ancestry, California Death Records substantiates the date of birth as 27 Jun 1906 but her married name as Smith (husband Jack Arthur Smith, both buried in Oakmont Memorial Park in Layafette, Contra Costa, CA.). Info as follows:

Name: Nellie May Smith
[Nellie May Alexander]
Gender: Female
Birth Date: 27 Jun 1906
Birth Place: Utah
Death Date: 29 Mar 1994
Death Place: Contra Costa
Mother's Maiden Name: Springer
Father's Surname: Alexander

My other Nellie (#2) was born on 27 Sep 1906 to Henry Samuel Alexander and Nettie May Wallace Alexander and the 3rd child born of the marriage. Birth certificate link below. The family moved from Park City, Utah to Robertson, Uinta, Wyoming sometime between her birth and the 1910 Census. I did find her in the 1920 census but not in a later census by her maiden name.

Ancestry, California Death Records for Nellie #2 reflects the following:

Name: Nellie May Reeves
[Nellie May Alexander]
Gender: Female
Birth Date: 27 Sep 1906
Birth Place: Utah
Death Date: 5 Jan 1983
Death Place: San Diego
Mother's Maiden Name: Wallace
Father's Surname: Alexander

I was struggling with which husband to marry off to which Nellie and now I'm unsure. I have marriage info for both but neither document the date of birth for the bride, although the location of the marriage is known. If the date of birth for #1 Nellie is changed, her parents would be correct but her husband would be wrong along with her siblings and children based on the Ancestry information.

I thought I knew but now see the need for a second pair of eyes to validate my findings. I'm hoping that either or both Nellie's are also in your family line and that you will be the 2nd pair of eyes I need. Even if you are not related, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I maintain my own genealogy website and need to know if I am inadvertently passing on incorrect information.

Again, sorry for the length of my message. I tried to find an email address for you but couldn't. Mine is wombmate [@] if you would rather reply via email. Thanks for your time and all your effort.
