    There is a serious discrepancy in Mattie's reported age.  The ages inthe census indicate she was about a year younger than James, and bornabout 1890.  But a photo of what appears to be her grave, posted on amemorial on Find a Grave, shows the date of birth as 8 Dec 1898.  Thedate on the grave must be wrong, though this otherwise appears to bethe correct person's grave.  They originally lived in Tuttle where sheis buried, before moving to Anadarko where he was in business.  Thisis not the first grave I have found that has the wrong birth date.

    Mattie's husband died in 1941.

    She moved some time later to Oklahoma City and was reported there inseveral city directories.
