Subject: Re: [VAROOTS] Ancestry.com lookup - Eoline Mathews
Date: Fri, 21 Aug 2009 19:35:31 EDT
Hi Pat (and Linda). I found Eoline in the 1900 Census (using the LDS Pilot
Program Linda was using and then heritage quest). Their indexer listed her
under a Jesse O. EVER* (the actual page looked like it could have been
EVERETT to me) and she was 2, born in 1797. I then went to heritage quest and
looked for all the Jesses in Washington Co. to see what their indexer called
the fellow. He was identified as Jesse EVERETT there. He was in Washington
Co., NC, page 41.
I could not find Eoline in the 1910 Census in NC (because, as you list
below, Jesse is Jessie and EVERETTE, not EVERETT) and of course you found her,
as I did, in the 1920 NC Census, 21, teacher, in Jesse's household in the
same district as in the 1900 NC Census in Washington Co.
I believe this is her, but who knows for sure (maybe there is a Marriage
Again, thanks for all your help with this Pat and Linda. Best wishes,
In the NC Birth Index did it mention who the Mother was? In the

Well, I chased down the find from Linda -- and if anyone wants the history
of Eoline Shaw, I have it <G> -- but not our "gal." This Eoline married a
Doctor Robert H Spiro, and was living in Asheville, Buncombe, NC in 1930.
So sad, it was a good story -- all the way back to 1850.
Back to the drawingboard.
Eoline was 33 in 1930, so born about 1897. This disagrees with the SSDI and
NC death records, if those records are for her. However, she may have been
fudging a bit on the Census. She was married at 28, so say about 1925.
I'll start with the NC Birth Index:

Next. Relationship of Washington and Hertford counties to our target
Well, neither are very close.
Unfortunately, the birth records for Forsyth County are not included in the
Ancestry records "North Carolina Birth Index, 1800-2000" -- and this means
couple of things. First, hard to find the BC for Harold, and, if Eoline was
born in Forsyth, she's not there either.
Now, if she was really born in 1889, as the DC states:
Name: Neir Eoline Matthews
[Neir Eoline S]
Marital Status: Widowed
Social Security Number: 239207861

Date of Birth: 1 Aug 1889

Death City: Greensboro

We find one possible in the 1900: (all b NC)
Snow Creek (Brown's Precinct), Stokes County, NC

Simco U Kallam 32 (looks like Irie[ca] to me) Nov 1867, m12yrs, 4/4
Geo M Kellam 12 Jan 1888
Olie S Kellam 10 Aug 1889
Harry C Kellam 8 Aug 1891
Fletcher L Kellam 7 Mch 1893
Frank Duggins 15 hirling, May 1885
Olie S is now Lola, married to J A Martin, living with the family in 1910.
However, her mother is now listed as "Q V." The 1920 has her as Quincy V.
There is a BC, Stokes county, for Olie Sue Kallam, 1889, father John Thomas
book 4 page 201 - also Harry Cleveland, George Thomas. This is an alpha
index, so there are multiple generations here. No mothers.
So, not our girl. Yet.
The listed births on that date in the NCBI were
Emma Reid Dulin, Iredell, John Wilson Dulin and Emma Susan Riley
Marjorie Elizabeth Hartman, Davie County, Charles A Hartman and Maggie M
Mary Ida Belle Miller, Rowan County, James Calvin Miller and Mara Ada
Ida Florence Somers, Rockingham County, Robert P Somers and Annie Elizabeth
Leah House Wills, Madison County, Daniel Wills and Florence House.
So, that's all I have.
Maybe a look at the actual Death Certificate (and I'm assuming you know she
died in Guilford?) may provide further information. However, because of her
age and where she was, I wouldn't hold out much hope.
Now, I gotta go do something else. I never know when to stop this.
