  • This child, along with two others in this family, is reported in noteson the family, in addition to children recorded in the censuses of1900 and 1910.  See notes for Thomas Everett Terry.

    Her date of birth were recorded in a list of family names and datesfrom Julia Virgina (Jennie) Terry Jenkins, Carrie's older sister,written by Lou Ila Jenkins in the 1950s.  Her date oif death and ageat death are engraved on her gravestone in Eton Cemtery in the townwhere theTerrys were living at the time.  Her older brother WilliamEarnest also died, three days later.

    In Janury 2015 when I submitted some additional information toCarrie's memorial on Find a Grave, I was asked to become editor ofCarrrie's memorial.  The age on the stone subtracted from the date ofdeath reported should be December 18, 1885.  This may be a day or twooff.  This is the close to the birth date reported by her sister (mygrandmotehr) Jennie, but is still a few days after Jennie's date of 13December 1885.  The memorial reflects the date of birth reported byJennie Jenkins in a list of her family members.  Here is the updatedmemorial.
