Notes

  • The name of the child born in 1890 is unreadable due to a huge smudge. The first letter is an L, and two stems are visible.  It could be Lu,as so many genealogies have concluded.  In 1910 the name appears to bewritten as Lienelin.  The writing is scrawled.  Comparison with otherentries on the page make it appear the name is Lienelin.

    Marion Mixon, a cousin and coresearcher on this and related families,deterrmined from sources that her name was Ellen, with nickname Lou.It is possible the name intended here in the 1910 census was LouEllen.  It occurs to me that the enumerator might have writtenLieuelin, for the words Lieu Ellen, spelling Lieu instead of Lou.This would match the configuration of the letters, but seems odd.

    There are different Tahoka Cemetery lilstings.  The following FuneralHome list had no Terrys.
    --  Tahoka Cemetery Listings,http://www.cemeteries-of-tx.com/Wtx/Lynn/cemetery/TahokaT-Z.html

    I finally found a master list of the cemetery and found the Terrys,including Lou Ellen and her husband.

    All censuses report her birth in Texas, but the informant for herdeath certificate, C B Terry, reported her birthplace as Ada, Okla. Isuspect this was because of the longtime association of her parentswith Ada. It was probably Hill or Cooke County TX.
