Plus their middle initials don't match in 1910--maybe Margaret gave the information and wasn't sure about Martha's and her daughters ages/date?)

    Feb 2, 1931
    No parents listed.
    Daisy Jenes informant.
    Swann Cemetery

    Somehow someone put 1871 as the birth date on her grave information. No early census supports that date but we can't count on the 1900 here because she didn't give info on herself or her kids apparently since it doesn't match anything else in the world.

    Martha and W.O. (her nephew) are buried in the Swann Cemetery in Jefferson Co, just below Paralee EDMONDS Jenes.
