    Her ages are inconsistent in censuses.  The 1900 census reports herbirthday as may 1878.  The age of 34 in 1910, would make it about1876.  In 1920 age 38 would make it 1878 again.  I found informationon Beulah in one family genealogy following theWilliams/Brinkley/Mason/Vaughn lineages.  This genealogy has much gooddetail, and have corroborated much other Williams information on otherBrinkley individuals with my cousin Marion Mixon, a member of theBrinkley lineage.  The Williams genealogy reports Beulah's birth asJanuary 1880!  Unfortunately this genealogy gives no source for theinformation.  Based on the validity of so much other familyinformation this genealogy, I am following this for the birth date ofBeulah Williams Brinkley.

    Beulah's husband Robert Clarence died in 1916.  They are buried inWalters, Oklahoma, Cemetery as is their son Robert C.  The cemeterylisting has no dates for any of them.
