My great grandmother was Louise May (Wood) Price on her SS application.  SS# is 221-24-4500.  I have a copy of her application.  Her father was William H Wood, mother's name was listed as just Mary.  Her address at that time was 212 N. Franklin which is Wilmington, DE.  I struggle with information on this side of my family.  My grandmother was Olive Ann Price.  Also have heard last names such as Henry and Shearer for Louise.  Not sure if she was actually born in Binghamton, I always heard stories of her being from Alabama.  Thanks for any help anybody can offer.

From the census data both children, Olive and John Jr. were born in PA.  I would try to get a copy of this 1919 PA  marriage cert. of John J Price and Lulu M. Wood, to see if the actual document has additional info.

This is a long shot, but the names seem to match, and maybe Olive was named after her great grandmother?????
