FOLLOWUP

Thomas' middle name may have been Harrison and he may have been born 16 Jun 1880 in St. James, Missouri and died 20 Oct 1941 in Lincoln Nebraska. [research-a-spear-family-history]

The children of Thomas Pinson and Mary Dole may have been June Janetta Pinson (b. 14 Nov 1915 in Beatrice, Nebraska, d. 13 Jun 1954 in The Dalles, Oregon, bur. Memorial Park Cemetery in Lincoln, Nebraska), Leland James Pinson (b. 12 Oct 1920 in Lincoln, Nebraska), and Wanda Priscella Pinson (b. 23 Jun 1922 in Lincoln, Nebraska, d. 20 Sep 1989 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, bur.

Leland's birth may be supported by a tiny piece in the 13 Oct 1920 edition of the Evening State Journal (in the Newspaper.com database entry Lincoln Journal Star) of Lincoln, Nebraska, on page 12, colunn 4, under "The Birth Record." The full text is "Oct. 12---Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H. Pinson (Mary Helen Dale) a son." Note the misspelling of Dole, which was in the published piece.
