Notes

  • This genealogy previously reported the birth date of Bertie ElizabethCunningham as birth 26 November 1935 and death in Wichita Kansas 26January 2006.  This was based on a public directory record for anElizabeth Henderson living in Friars Point, Mississippi, in 1995.  InAugust 2012,

    I found information clarifying that this Elizabeth Henderson was adifferent person, and not Bertie Elizabeth Cunningham who marriedHerschell Henderson.  So this birth date is for the other ElizabethHenderson.  I found a memorial on Find a Grave for the ElizabethHenderson in Friars Point, Mississippi, that gave details on thatperson.

    These records indicate (Bertie) Elizabeth was born in November 1935.But in the 1940 census, the parents of our Bertie Elizabeth Cunninghamreported her as 7 years old, which would make her born in about 1933.The census says their son Bobby was born in 1935.

    What appears to be a marriage record for this Bertie ElizabethCunningham reports her age consistent with birth in 1932 or 1933.This was her first marriage to Bobby Dale Hoover.
