    James and his twin sistrer Marie are reported in 1940 as 11 yeras old, indicating birth in about 1929.  The date of birth reported for Jimmie in the genealogy above is 28 April 1994.  But this is over a year after the reported death of hhis mother's husband George Teal on 21 February 1928, according to the Arkansas Death Index.  Their brother Troy was also reported in the 1940 census with age 9, meaning he was not born until about 1931 or late 1930, about 3 years after the death of George Teal.

    I found that on his twin sister's marriage record she was reported as age 18 in April 1946.  This would place her birth in 1928, not 1929.  This resolves the conflict of their birth reported over a year after their father died.  It is quite possible that the remembered birth date was a year later than the actual.  I have seen many cases of this in other family lineages.  I have found no Arkansas birth record for the birth of any of the Teal children, which is also strange.

    The problem still remains with Troy, reported in the 1940 census as 9 years old, and thus born in 1930 or 1931.
