  • There is a discrepancy in the age of Nannie between the 1900 and 1910censuses.

    In 1900 she is reported as 16 years old, and this matches the birthdate given in the census, March 1884.

    Terry, Nannie Dau F W  Mar 1884  16 s GA GA NC At School

    But in the 1910 census, her age is given as 22, which would not matcha birth year of 1884.

    In 2013 I found a photo in an old family collection from my father inwhich Nannie's sister, my grandmother Julia Virginia Terry Jenkins,had written Nannie's name as Nannie Lawton.  This was the firstindication I had found of Nannie's marriage.  No searches have turnedup any information or person named Lawton.  Oklahoma marriage anddeath records are not available online.  No memorial has been foundfor Mr Lawton on Find a Grave.

    Sources and facts were few on Nannie, and information on her husbandis even more scarce.  Only in September 2015, did a search on thegrowing online library of turn up a Social Securityrecord in a recently-added record set.  This reported that SocialSecurity records had a different name for her, but confirmed it wasthe same person, with the parents' names as known in familyinformation and other records.  Here Nannie Jane is called Annie Jane.

    A second married name is also discovered here, with a name changereported in her record in December 1943 to Annie Jane Madison.  Theseclues gave us her and her husband's grave memorials in Find a Grave.It is interesting that her Social Security records do not reflect herfirst marriage to (Unknown First Name) Lawton.  This is probablybecause she did not apply for a Social Security account until afterhis death, and she applied in her maiden name.

    In the 1940 census she was reported as Nannie Madison, but in 1950 shesigned the order for her husband's military gravestone as Mrs AnnieJane Madison.  No records has been found fo Manine/Annie in the SocialSecurity Death Index.  Note ttat the following SS record has no deathdate.

    With this information a burial record was found in a memorial on Finda Grave.  Nannie was buried in her hometown, Marlow, Oklahoma.  I notehere that her first name Nannie is reported here as her nickname.  Hersister, Julia Virgina Terry reported her name as Nannie Jane Terry.

    WIth Bill Madison's information now in the search, a 1940 censusrecord was found that seems to be for Nannie and Bill.  In thisenumeration in Shannon City (Pottawatomie County), their ages andbirth states match.  Here Bill (enumerated as W C) is a salesman for apublishing company.
