I am referring to the child born just before she died - am assuming this to be her first and only one because she was only 18. I found death certificates for both Freida and her son James. He was born May 28, 1942 and Freida died June 10, 1942. So she didn't die during childbirth, but shortly after do to complications (I assume). James lived to be 4 months and 21 days old - date of death is listed as Oct 19, 1942. Both are signed by my great uncle Rufus Harrell. I have found them listed as being buried in Hurricane Gap Cemetery in Letcher County. Would you like me to send copies of both certificates to your email address?
For your records - Rufus parents were Alvis Hairrell and Eliza Ellen Barnes. There are also family ties to Youngs, Mowl(Mowell), and Warf in the area.
