    This genealogy has the incorrect birth place for Daisy's husband, apparently guessing that Gentryville, where the couple lived for the 1900 census, was Archie's birth place.  But their son Cecil's WWI draft card reports that Archie was born in Jasper, in Dubois County, Indiana.  But this genealogy gives us Daisy's last name.

    The birth date reported here appears to come from the 1900 census also.  This birth date differs from that on Daisy's gravestone, which reports a birth year (only) of 1880.  Her age in the 1910 census is also consistent with birth in 1878.
