Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)
Both of Mary's parents were born in Lousiana. [census-us-1920-ps-la-jeffersondavis-72-13a, census-us-1930-ps-tx-liveoak-1-8a]
Her surname may be Allen. [research-a-spear-family-history]
The 1930 U.S. Census indicates that their marriage was the first marriage for both George and Mary, and that it took place when he was 31 and she was 30 (about 1903/1904). This implies that their daughter Ruth (born 1896/1897) was born out-of-wedlock. (Is it possible this marriage was not really the first for George and/or Mary, and that the census record is in error, or that George and Mary withheld some facts from the enumerator?)
