Re: Elsey Cunningham, Green Hill Cemetery

Nothing adds up regarding Elsey. According to the 1910 Haywood County Census:
George Allen Cunningham, age 37
Martha L. (Mattie), age 31
Humphrey, age 14
Eliza Jane, age 9
Samuel Early, age 7
Mary, age 6
Maggie, age 5
Now, her headstone @ Green Cemetery reads as follows:
Elsey Cunningham, born: 11/25/1897, died: 11/25/1900
If Elsey & Eliza Jane are the same, the age doesn't add up. If Eliza Jane was 9 in the 1910 census, she would've been born in 1901. Her headstone says that she was born in 1897. Do you think that Eliza and Elsey are one of the same?
I'll tell you what. I will search the cemetery to see if she's buried next to the other Cunningham's.
This one is a mystery to me.
