Barbara Cleburn was born in Colorado in 1937.  She was reported in the 2940
census with her parents in the Austin, Texas, area.

Linda VIxie, in touch with Barbara's daughter, reports the following:

Here’s is the marriage record of Roger L. Tripp to Barbara L. Sullivan in
Raton, NM, 16 Sep 1957. His birth date and place are given....  (Sullivan is
Barbara’s married name; maiden name was Cleburn.)

Barbara’s age isn’t correct, and she wasn’t born in Texas. She was then
19 years old, almost 20, and this is her third marriage. Her daughter (my
friend, who I’m doing this work for) was the child of another guy in there
between #2 and #3. Mr. Sullivan was already in Germany with the army when my
friend was conceived. His name is on her orig. birth cert, but he can’t be
her father.

Marriage 16 September 1957 in Raton, Colfax County, New Mexico by Steve S
Segota, Justice of the Peace
Witnesses Lloyd and Clara Casida
License #48124 issued and recorded 16 September 1957

There is a marriage license on file for Barbara Tripp dated 14 May 1960.  But
it was not executed.  The ceremony part of it is still empty.This document
authorizes the marriage of Barbara Togna Lorene Tripp to Julius Nemeth, both
of Barberton, Ohio.  They both give the same residence address.  This document
reports that Barbara has been divorced twice.  We would expect the most recent
of those to be a divorce from Roger Tripp, since that is her last married
name.  However, we have the report from her daughter above that she had been
married twice before marrying Roger.

This document is wrong in stating that she was twice divorced.  It may have
been three times.  This is also indicated in the alternative name given with
the index for this record, Barbara Cleburn.  The birth date here is a little
different from that given on her license for marriage to Roger Tripp.  That
earlier one gave the birth date as 20 October 1934, and this one says 28
October 1934.  Her age is reported as age 26 in 1960, the same as she reported
in 1957.  The age on this certificate matches the birth date given, even if
the specific day is different.

Tripp family researcher Linda Vixie reports that Barbara misrepresented here
age a lot.

"Barbara misrepresents her age a lot,  in the many documents we’ve found on
her.  She has a sad history and was quite the wild child throughout her short
life.  This is only a fraction of the story.  She spent most of her life in
prison.  I’ve learned not to be surprised by anything we find on her, but I
always still am."
--  Linda Vixie, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 8 February 2015

Note that on both these marriage licenses, Barbara's birth place is reported
as Dallas, Texas.

Spouse Father's Name Louis Nemeth
Spouse Mother's Name Vilma Resnaki
He was once previously married, now a widower
License issued 14 May 1960 Summit County, Ohio
Certificate of solemnization unfilled, no filing date.

Her name in this license is Barbara Togna Lorene Tripp.  The Lorene looks like
it could be a middle name, but the sequence is like it is a married name. 
Togna, however, could also be a middle name, maybe a surname somewhere in her
mother’s line?  Her father was Charles A Cleburn, her mother Elsa Youngren. 
Linda Vixie comments that Togna was an alias that Barbara liked and used

Also, this license states that she has been married twice and divorced twice,
before this license in 1960.  That includes the Tripp license.  So she has
lowered the number of marriages in this declaration, if earlier information
was correct that she had already been married twice when she married Roger
Tripp at age 19. Or could her daughter have got confused about when the
various marriages were?

Linda Vixie found out from Nemeth family members that Barbara had been serving
as a nanny for Julius Nemeth's daughters after this wife died.  They were
planning to get married, but then Julius called it off.

"Barbara was the nanny for several girls in a widower’s household. I’ve
talked to them, and they remember her, but their father kicked her out before
the marriage occurred. They didn’t know they went as far as a license."
--  Linda Vixie, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 8 February 2015

I have found some more documents for Barbara, and her parents with her in the
1940 Texas census.  This reports her born in Colorado.  Barbara may have
actually had a legitimate erroneous memory and thought she was born in Texas,
since she was only two in this census.  She would not have remembered Colorado
before her family moved to Texas.

Barbara's age of two in the 1940 census would correlate with her age as 19 in
1957 when she married Roger Lee Tripp.  Her grave has the birth year as 1937. 
Updated info for her memorial on Find a Grave was submitted and the updated
memorial is included here.

There is a second memorial for a Barbara L Cleburne who matches our Barbara
Lorene Cleburn, but the burial is in another cemetery.  This memorial has no
dates in the primary data fields, but with a note on the burial date from
Colorado Springs city burial records.  There is no photo of a grave.  The date
of burial matches the year of burial reported in the above memorial.

It appears this memorial was posted with the burial information from a death
certificate or similar record from Colorado Springs, when the actual burial
occurred in the Beulah Cemetery at Pueblo.  This could have been because, like
may other cases I have seen, the coroner or physician was told one cemetery,
but that place was uncertain or the burial place was changed after removal for
