Her death cert is from Kern General hospital in Bakersfield CA, and under "informant" it says hospital record, so I would guess it was either her or her children that provided the information (she was widowed by them), says she was in the hospital for 1mo and in the community for 2yrs prior to death so I would imagine it is possible the records came from her. I am aware of the problem with the 1890 census, it is so sad. However I was hoping at least her mother would appear on records from the area as she was said to be a Choctaw native american but her father was certainly "white" so I didn't know how that sort of thing was reported in the area.
