Notes for Anna Clark
Her death certificate records Annie Dennis, age 72 years 9 months, born 29 May 1880 in Hogtown, Ky, died 11 March 1953 at Daniel Drake Memorial Hospital in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., Ohio, usual address 2929 Burnet Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio, widowed, father Samuel Clark, mother’s maiden name unknown, cause of death myocardial insufficiency, due to hypertensive cardio vascular disease, informant hospital records, burial in Evergreen Cemetery, Newport, Ky.
Since she was not listed in the 1880 census, taken in June 1880, and her brother Franklin according to that census was born in Feb 1880, it is more likely that she was born in 1881.
