Note that the following facts do not agree with the information presently in my database. Can anyone verify which of the following is correct?
The obituary spells her mother’s name as “Rita.” My records show the spelling to be “Reta.”
The obituary lists her place of birth as Decatur, Macon Co., llinois. My records show her place of birth as Assumption, Christian Co., IL. (I suspect Assumption to be the correct place of birth.)
The obituary lists her marriage date as Nov. 24, 1946. My records show her marriage date as Mar. 24, 1948.
The obituary spells her daughter-in-law’s name as “Gay.” My records show the spelling to be “Gaye.”
