Ada B. “Eddie” Smothers Bland

Birth record of Helen shows her as Eddie Smothing. She appears as Ada on at least one census and I suspect Eddie was a nickname.

Kentucky death index: Name: Eddie B Bland; Death Date: 10 Feb 1969; Death Place: Marion; Age: 85; Residence: Marion; Volume: 9 Certificate: 4141. SSDI: Last Residence: 40033 Lebanon, Marion, Kentucky; Born: 7 Apr 1881; Died: Feb 1969; State (Year) SSN issued: Kentucky (Before 1951).

Her headstone shows her year of birth as 1884 and this date is likely correct for she was 85 years of age (1969 less 85 equals 1884).
