Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

In the 1930 U.S. Census with Elizabeth's entry, which is not yet used in this database, her birth place is given as West Virginia rather than Virginia. West Virgina didn't split from Virginia until the Civil War, so the correct state depends on when she was born.
