    Death Certificate: Emma Jane Boston McNair

  • Notes 
    • Since my grandmother Alice is also descended from the Walker line, the children of Emma Jane and Shadrick are double cousins to Alice.

    Born:
    • Census record from 1900 says birth year 1880. Going to go with 1881 since this was reported in 1900, an earlier date than on the death certificate from 1917.
