Aunt Kate is buried at Beacon Light Masonic Cemetery in San Antonio. However, there is a significant difference in her year of birth between the headstone that indicates 1870 and the death certificate that indicates 1876. To date (7/19/20), this discrepancy remains unresolved. We exhausted all attempts to resolve this discrepancy unsuccessfully.

We reviewed six census documents as follows: 1870 lists estimated birth year as 1867; 1880 lists estimated birth year as 1868; 1890 and 1900 census documents unavailable; 1910 lists estimated birth year as 1871; 1920 lists estimated birth year as 1871; 1930 lists estimated birth year as 1873; and 1940 lists estimated birth year as 1871.

Of the six census documents, 50% indicated an "estimated" birth year of 1871. However at this time, we give more credibility to the death certificate because it was signed by Aunt Kate's daughter, Mrs. M. J. Wells (Mayme Jackson Wells). Until bona fide documents are located and over turn this information, we will continue to use the birth year of 1876.
