    The delayed birth record was issued on the basis of the stateddocuments giving her birth date.  The year of birth on her SocialSecurity records is 1888 instead of 1885.  None was the 1900 census,which we have reason to doubt.  No visual of the family Bible isavailable for verification of exactly what was reported.  Twoaffidavits report presence at or awareness of her birth at the time ofthe birth.  But memories of dates are in that era often vague.

    The entry for Harriet in 1900 looks like Harriet B, but her middlename was Rachel, so perhaps the enumerator meant it as an R.  In 1910Harriet is reported as Minnie.  Minnie matches the child Harriet B(Harret B), but is reported as only 6 years older than Harriet.  Infact, every person in the household aged only 4-6 years old,
