Notes for Robert Link
I cannot find this Robert Link in the Kentucky death records, although his uncle of the same name is listed. He may have died in Butler Co., Ohio, where some of his children settled.
Notes for Ida Mae Utterback
Her death certificate (Vol. 32, #15834) records Ida M. Link, age 77 years 6 months 28 days, born 11 Jan 1867 in Ky, died 9 Aug 1944 in Farmers, Rowan Co., Ky, widowed, late husband Robert Link, father William Utterback, mother’s maiden name Mandy Susan Day, both born in Ky, cause of death cerebellar hemorrhage, informant Mrs. Jerry Brewer, Morehead.
The birthdate on the death certificate is in conflict with that on her gravestone, which says Jan 25, 1871.
The 1900 census gives Ida Mae's birthdate as Aug 1972. The 1910 census gives her age as 41, implying a birthdate in 1868 or 1869. Her gravestone says. I believe, however, that she is the Ada age 4 months in the 1870 census, born Jan 1870, twin of Effie Lee.
In 1920 she was listed as age 49, mother-in-law, widowed, with the family of Jerry Brewer and Myrtle [Link].
In 1930 she was listed as age 56, mother-in-law, widowed, with the family of George Brewer and Sarah [Link].
