Although her tombstone and her son, Mansel Armstrong, both said her birthdate was 1870, her 1870 and 1880 census show her as having been born one year earlier. Actually the 1870 census was taken two weeks before her supposed birth and lists a one-year-old named Samuel. Comparing this with the 1880 record, where Annie was listed as 11, I believe Samuel was probably Anna Samantha. There is no indication of another child. Her parents' October 1883 divorce decree gives her age as 14.
Her death certificate gives the wrong maiden name for her mother. Christopher Howard was her mother's stepfather. See also daughter Nannie's obituary., , , , ,

Text: Reuben W. Turner pension file no. 48840, National Archives. It appears that Reuben did not have a disability pension, which explains the lack of correspondence relaing to his pension as well as pension papers giving family data, but Margaret Ellen applied for a widow's pension and was rejected because of her divorce and remarriage. I have not found a record of Margaret and Stewart McCord's divorce, other than her declaration for a pension, which states the divorce took place 24 Sep 1901, but they were definitely living apart at the time of the 1900 census. I also have not found a remarriage of Reuben and Margaret, although they were in the same household in 1900. We have searched and cannot locate their 1910 census. A typeover in this pension document makes it unclear whether Reuben Died on 10 Nov 1905 or 1915; the date of the document, 31 Oct 1916, is more an indication of the law under which Margaret filed for a pension, than the date of death; the cover page from the pension office states death was 1905.
