Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Helen may have been born in Guthrie County, Iowa and died 29 Oct 1990 in Sacramento, California. [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. Hillcrest Memorial Park Cemetery in Ardmore, Oklahoma). [research-a-spear-family-history]

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.

Leland's birth date of 12 Oct 1920 and Wanda's birth date of 23 Jun 1922 are supported by a family notebook of birth and death dates. [misc-spear-date-notebook]
