Dear Christine,
The reason I am interested in that death date is because I'm trying to find out if there is a possiblity that a baby died on that date. Parents (father) Charles Tyler Phillips (mother)Mary Horn. The reason is my mother was (at least) part Indian. I only have two photos of her sisters and they don't look alike. Although it is a theory I suspect that Charles and Mary Horn had a baby,but it died and they adopted a baby. They whole situation is weird. The Phillips and Horns were in Kentucky since the late 1700 or early 1800s. Can never find out why they went to Texas although grandmother had an uncle in Navarro County. I was adopted after my mother died two months after my birth. It would be ironic if mother was adopted then I was. Trying to get information about my mother was like pulling teeth and I may never know. I have one good photo of her after she married my father and she looks Indian and so does my oldest sister (now dead). I'm and my only living sister both have light skin and green eyes. All I know is it is extremely difficult to find any thing about her. I found my mother's only living sister a few years ago and she told me very little about her. My (natural)father went I did have an opportunity to visit him, but he never would say anything about my mother (he had remarried). Being adopted can be rough. That is why I want to check both dates JUST IN CASE! Thanks for the reply Christine.

Sincerely


Roger Warren
