Death of Scott Howard ELDER




  • Family genealogies report Maire's middle name as Maxine.  Sheapparently went by Dumond, from her stepfather, since this is the namereported on her marriage record.  I have not found official adoptionrecords.

    1940 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 4 May, LaGrueTownship, District 1-17, page 20A, Road to Cuba, Hse #377, Rents $5

    Teal, Marie Stepdau F W 11 Single Grade 3 b Ark Father b Okla Mother bArk same place in 1935

    Marie's age in the 1940 census, as well as her brother Jimmie of thesame age, indicates birth in about 1929, a year after the reporteddeath of her father in February 1928!.  However, her age at the timeof marriage indicates birth a year earlier.

    Marie's reported age at the time of marriage in April 1946 was 18,making her birth in April 1928 or before.  This goes some way toresolving the discrepancy of another reported birth date for her.  Herage in the 1940 census above is 11 years, making her birth in about1929, over a year after her father's official date of death inFebruary 1928.

    Her brother Jimmie, who is also age 11 and thus apparently a twin, isreported on his gravestone as born in April 1929.  If the age inMarie's marriage record is correct, the reported birth date is a yearlate.  Going by Marie's age and marriage date in April 1946, Marie andJimmie were born only 2 months after their father's death, resolvingthe conflict.
