  2. Hello-

    I noticed that you do not have a death year listed for #19 Edna Jane Vines. On, there is a Tennessee death certificate for a Edna J. “CLOWSON”, who died on December 1, 1933 in Carter County, Tennessee aged “near 75”. She is listed as being born in Johnson County, the daughter of James Wilbern VINES (indexed as “VINET”) and Vina DUGGER (indexed as “DIGGER”), both also born in Johnson County.

    Hope this helps!
