      "Jabis' correct name is Jabez Wilburn Robertson. Born 1901, but eitherstill livng at age 107, or died before ss cards were issued in 1935. Icannot find him after the 1920 census. I have copies of the marriageapplication, giving Fay's birth date and parent's names.
      I am stymied that I cannot find a death date for J Wilburn.
      there is a Fay Robertson listed on the 1930 census as working for aman, but she is listed as 's'. I have searched ww1 wwll records,thinking he inlisted and she hired out as a housekeeper. Can you getme closer to someone who may know his death and place? C. Robertsonplease respond to topknat@aol.com" [Transcribed 01 August 2008,SLJuhl, Compiler]
