      BELL JONES 11-27-1879 7-27-1926

      {For Bell, used month/day (Nov. 27) of birth date, but not year (1879), since she was listed as 3 years old in 1880 census. The 1880 census date of record was June 1, and the enumeration was done June 14-15, and thus a child born in November 1876 would be enumerated as 3-years old in the 1880 census. Also, the 1910 and 1920 censuses have her birth year as 1876. }
