Research notes

  • Marriage of Joseph and Tillie : I have listed two contradictory sources for the marriage of Joseph and Tillie - one[7] says that they married in 1904 and the other[1] in 1916. I tend to believe the 1904 date because is matches better with the 4 years of marriage shown in the 1910 census[9] and the age of their daughter born 16 Jan 1906[8]. But maybe they split up and then re-married or maybe "F.J." is another person.
  • The 1900 census[6] and the 1910 census[9] show Tillie born in Tennessee but the death certificate[3] and the 1920 census[5] show her born in Indiana and the FindAGrave entry[4] show her born in Evansville, Indiana. I have recorded "Evansville, Indiana" but this is very uncertain.
  • The FindAGrave entry[4] says that "Tillie and Joseph were divorced sometime after about 1928." While this is completely plausible, I can find no other corroborating source.
