Additional detail for reference: Page 21 - January Deaths

Comment: Source includes date ([January] 28 [...] 1930). An additional entry for Viola on page 22 gives "[February] 28 [...] 1930" as her death date. This is in conflict with the source itself so it is noted here rather than in the research notes, even though it was not selected because it is also in conflict with other records.
