I see from your message history you have a little more then you show here. Mintrel's first husband was "William" A. Grant, second one Ellis Freeny.

Census records show William and Mentril in 1910 Carter Co, OK, and 1920 in Johnston Co, OK (not Grayson Co, TX) with first children born in TX, later ones in OK. On the 1920 her parents are shown as both born in U.S. and the 1920 shows father b NC, mother b SC. This may be an indication she's not really sure.

You know when and where Mintrel died in AZ, and have a copy of her obit. Obits and death certificates are only as accurate as the knowledge of the informants. But, Mintrel filled out her own application for a Soc Sec card, and even if you do not have her number, you can still apply for a copy of that application. It should show the names of her parents, her residence at the time of her application and other data, too. She may have been married to Ellis Freeny by the time she applied, but the Soc Sec Adm does not charge for an application if they cannot find one. So not too crutial if you get her surname incorrect. You can try again.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
