Notes

  • The first public record I find for Mildred Rowland is the 1920 censusfor Stone County, Arkansas, when she is almost 3 years old.

    1920 Federal Census, Stone County, Arkansas, Flag Township, District148, Page 7B

    The 1920 census was taken in January.  This age of 2 years 11 monthsdoes not correlate with her birth date reported by the Social SecurityDeath Index of 27 January 1918.  If she was 1 month short of her 3rdbirthday, it seems her birth date was actually January 1917, not 1918.

    Thad and Mildred were married on Christmas Day 1939.  Their licensewas issued on 23 Dec 1939.  Place of marriage presumed to be ArkansasCounty.

    In thjre 1940 census Mildred is enuemerated as Juanita.

    Mildred was in California as a young woman.  I do not have details,but found that her Social Security number had been issued inCalifornia "Before 1951."  She was back in Stuttgart, Arkansas inlater life.  In the 1960s, I visited Thad and Mildred with my wife-to-Edith McSwain.  I have not found details, but I surmise she and Thadwere in California during World War II.

    The Social Security Death Index provides an exact birth date forMildred, as well as date and place of residence at death.
