Notes

  • This child, along with two others in this family, is reported in notes on the family, in addition to children recorded in the censuses of 1900 and 1910.  See notes for Thomas Everett Terry.

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

    It seems likley they were victims of the Yellow Fever epidemic plaguing the southestern US since the Great Epidemic that devastated major cities of Georgia in 1876.

    2 Yrs 8 Mos & 10 Days

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