  • Lillie May's birth record reports her birth as 23 September 1886 inSpencer County, Indiana.  The 1910 census in Warrick County, Indiana,recorded in April before her November marriage, which reported her asage 23, matching birth in 1886.  This also matches the census of 1900,which gives the birth date as September 1886.

    On the marriage license, however, her age is given as 26, which is 3years greater than her reported age  7 months earlier.  Her age waseither mis-transcribed, she gave the wrong age, or for some otherreason the wrong age was written down by a clerk.
