    Christian, Joe A Head M W 24 TX MS AL  Farmer
    Christian, Dilia E  Wife F W 18 AR USA AR  In the 1910 census,

    Gladys' age looks like 0/12, which would mean she was not yet onemonth old.  This  seems to indicate that she was born the month of thecensus (I think April 15 was the actual census date), or in March, atleast less than one month before the official census date.  But thedate of birth on her grave in Oakdale Cemetery gives her birth as 24February 1910.

    Oakdale (Washita County, Oklahoma) Cemetery Register
    "Christian, Gladdis  2/24/1910  3/18/1910"

    Since this is a full date, I am using this as the birth date.  Perhapsthe scrunched up writing in the census is meant to be 2/12.  It issqueezed by the fraction above indicating the age of Ernest, 1 4/12 (1year and 4 months), which carries into the line below.  A biggerproblem is that her gravestone says she died on 18 March 1910, over amonth before this census record was entered!
