Her birth to Abraham and Elisabeth Atwood is recorded on Fiche 5, "Massachusetts Vital Records: Wellfleet 1763-1890" 10 volumes on 23 microfiches, by Jay Mack Holbrook (boxed set in Wellfleet Public Library). The date is also recorded in the family Bible for Abner B. Rich and his wife Clarissa. The Bible lists only the following children:
Caroline C. [Carrie]b. "Feb 10th AD 1858 Truro" d. "May 4th 1864 in Truro"
Joshua H Rich b. "March 17th AD 1861 Truro" d. "May 3d 1864 in Truro"
Edwin H. Rich b. "June 1st AD 1867 Provincetown" d. "Dec-7-1897 in Roxbury"
Clarence A Rich b. "Oct 18th AD 1874 Provincetown" "Dec 20, 1937"
Genealogies of Mayflower Families, From the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. III, pub. 1985, p. 208 incorrectly lists the following children:
"1. Delia, 2. A daughter, m. James Atwood of Auburn, Me., 3. A daughter, m. Frank Cobb of Cambridge, Mass."
It omits Clarissa (Carrie) and Joshua, the first two children, but does include the other two sons Edwin and Clarence, however Edwin H. is listed as "Edward H. d. in early manhood"
