  • Notes 
    • DEATH: !Year of death from cemetery record card, Beggs Cemetery, Beggs, OK
      Lot Number 12 Section OC Space 6 Blk 10
      Date of Death 1923

      BIRTH: !As I have found before, the ages of women as given on the census records are not always accurate. Alice is no exception. Her birthday is May 30, so her age will vary by a year depending on the effective date of the census.

      1870 age 21 birth year 1849 effective date of census June 1
      1880 age 34 birth year 1846 effective date of census June 1
      1900 age 57 birth year 1843 effective date of census June 1
      1910 age 66 birth year 1843 effective date of census April 15, would be 67 in May

      Now, is she fudging her age when she's a young woman, or as she gets older? She is listed second among her siblings in 1870, indicating she is younger than her brother, Charles. But if she fibbed a little, the census taker would use the age given to him. Since Alice was still unmarried in 1870, I'm inclined to think she may have made herself younger at that time. The 1900 & 1910 censuses agree on 1843 as birth year. I'm going to accept that date pending further information.
