Was "Hall" her maiden name or married name? If married name we would need her maiden name.
Hall is her maiden name...her married name is Coker...

I did not find a birth record at FamilySearch.org

Thank you...wouldn't she have needed a birth certificate to be able to file for social security?  I'm trying to get into DAR and they require  3 generations of birth certificates
Just a census record of her as a child and or a register of birth from her State.  My FIL, b 1910, used a census record , obtained from US Gov, to get his SS benefits, and my Sister b 1930, used her Register of birth from the  County in State which she was born, to get her Social security benefits. Social Security Cards were issued by your local Post Office in the beginning. No BC were required at time.
So the 1920 census lists her as black that's not her...her mother was Nettie Johnson and her father was Graham David hall... There is an Emma but she who was her grandmother and would have been much older

General compliance for Birth Certificates didn't begin until 1930's, registration of births began in 1914 in Arkansas.
