Notes

  • The name Ouida is pronounced "Wee-duh."  I recall hearing about AuntOuida, though I don't remember ever meeting any of Julia Virginia'sfamily.

    In the 1900 census the writing looks like Orda.  It could be a closedE that is somewhat flattened; it looks somewhat like other E's innames on that census sheet.  Perhaps the spelling intended in 1900 wasalso Oeda.

    Terry, Mattie     Wife  F W  Nov 1861  38  m-20-yrs  NC  NC NC
    Terry, Oeda [Ouida] Dau F W  July 1899 11mo s  GA GA NC

    The name is written on the back of a family picture (in the possessionof Aretha Tucker Jenkins) is spelled Wedia.  I cannot recall if Iactually saw it spelled as a child.  But I always thought of the namewith the common spelling of Ouida.  This is how I find it spelled insome other references and later censuses.

    Terry, Mattie W  Wife  F W 50? marriage 2? Married 29?-yrs 7children/7 living NC NC NC
    Terry, Oeda  Dau  F W 10 Single GA GA NC  Farm Labor

    I note that the census official in 1910 recorded her name as Oeda.Georgia is reported here as Ouida's place of birth by this census.But the family are in Marlow by 1900.

    Ouida married Edward P Hill.  It appears that they moved to Georgiasoon after marriage.  It appears to be them in Georgia in the 1920census, and I have not found any  matching couple appears in the 1920Oklahoma census.  The census was taken at Camp Benning, which probablyexplains the location.  Edward was likely in the service during WWI,and stationed at Camp Benning.  Upon release they moved back home toOklahoma.

    Edward P Hill  Head M W 21 OK AR AR  Sergeant, US Army
    Ouida was listed as in Hse #69, Fam #70

    They are back in Stephens County, Oklahoma in 1930.  According to the1930 census, they married when he was 20 and she was 19.  This matcheswith their ages in 1920 with Edward age 21 and Ouida age 20.  The gapwidens in 1930, when they are 35 and 30 respectively.

    Virginia L Hill  Dau F W 7 OK OK GA

    Note that her mother's birthplace is said to be Florida, the firsttime I have seen that.

    Hill, Virginia Lee Dau F W 17 Single Grade H4 b Oklahoma Stephens Coin 1935

    I have wondered about Ouida's middle name Mayfield.  A surname as amiddle name usually indicates an ancestor surname, often on themother's side of the family.  I have not found a Mayfield in eitherthe Wall or the Terry line.

    Ouida's sister Julia Virginia gave the names of her family members tomy mother Lou Ila Gregory Jenkins in about 1955.  The information fromthis list says Ouida gives Ouida's middle name as Mayfield.  Note thather middle name in the 1940 census was Mae, which could be short forMayfield.  Julia Virginia gives Ouida's birth date as was born on 17July 1899.  This is also the date on her grave.

    This SS record may be for another Ouida Hill.  I am aware of anotherOuida born married to an Edward Hill in Virginia.  This Ouida was bornin Virginia.  I have not seen a record with a middle name or initialfor her.  There is also some connection to Hawaii, so this may be theVirginia Ouida Hill's record.  But many genealogies of this same Terryfamily reference this record as the report of Ouida Mayfield TerryHill's death.
